Shades Of Gray – the duo of Czech national Michal ‘Schwa’ Ruzickaand Aussie Nick West – have been turning many heads recently with their debut album ‘Soul Machine’ and the consistent quality of theirBeef Records imprint. They certainly turned our heads here at Lost My Dog so we got them firmly onto our leash! Their ‘All About The Drums EP’ contains four tracks of trademark deep and funky heads-down house including 3 collaborations, with Rodney O, Pavel ORM and Antsmif.
As the EP title suggests it’s all about the drums, and boy do they thump, snap, crackle and pop! But its also very much about the bass which growls and drives when it needs to, and bounces along when it needs to. The collaborators add guitar, synth and organ top lines to an EP that ranges from light and funky to dark and moody, while always deep and warm.
