Next up on electric minds is Croatia’s Ilija Rudman with two-tracker ‘Cinematic Behaviour’. Coming from one of the leading players in the disco-boogie movement, both weapons here certainly have the showering of cosmic dust that gives the sound such rapturous dancefloor appeal.
A-side ‘Cinematic Behaviour’ carries all the hallmarks of an Ilija track, replete with neon synth stabs, solid disco claps and a seriously hooky bassline. Deep and funky, with that swinging old school disco groove, the aptly named ‘Cinematic Behaviour’ will seduce the floor with its spine-tingling sonic flourishes and sweeping chromatics.
B-side ‘Landscape’ has a warm 80s vibe with starry-eyed chords and gliding synth pads that build into the ultra groovy bassline. Percussive shakes add to the rhythmic groove and a kaleidoscope of keys sprinkle the expansive motif. Both tracks are delivered in a purely authentic style that make you wonder if Ilija really has a time machine.
Ilija Rudman has spent the past decade as a purveyor of dance music, releasing under many different guises and collaborating with the likes of Greg Wilson, Pete Herbert, The Revenge and Mark E. With tracks picked up by Under The Shade, Wolf Music, 2020 Vision, Ilija also releases under his own label Red Music – established in 2002. This time last year, Ilija released his debut artist album, ‘The Reveal’ on Bear Funk winning the producer critical acclaim for his effortless vintage style and ocean deep knowledge of music. Upholding the standard of previous 12”s ‘Cinematic Behaviour’ is another shot of cosmic bliss.
