Roman Rauch | Can’t Get Enough

Whoa!  Just got put on to a Viennese dj/producer by the name of Roman Rauch who is no newbie to the music game.  Homie has some crazy eclectic beats on deck!  Hosting a monthly radio show together with Sam Irl (Fresh Minute) and Josef Eisl (RBMA) they form Generell Deep.  Turns out dood likes to collaborate - working with Kid Sublime (Kindred Spirits, Jahwell), Philta (4Lux), Makula (Eklektik), Dorian Concept (Kindred Spirits), Duktus (Tokyo Dawn), Blunted Monkz (Faces), PowLee (Urban Legends) and Bartellow to name a few his credentials are looking pretty shiny!

Having just released his debut 12” Can’t get Enough via Tjumy Records last month - he’s already being recognized by the likes of Jay Scarlett, Rainer Trüby and Alan Brown. 

Give a listen to the EP below and support vinyl here.

can’t get enough ep by roman rauch

A bit about each track:

Can`t get Enough:
New York meets Chicago here with this deep house groover. A perfect combination of Disco loops,New York rhythms,Chicago jack beats and organic basslines bring this tune to life. A perfect warm-up record for that long, hot, sexy night that lies ahead.

African drums and chants mix with a solid Chicago jack track. A fat groovy bassline and Armando style acid-synths top off this tune and bring it into the dancefloor primetime. Reminiscent of the best Relief & Trax records that came out in the mid-nighties and most definitely a hit.

My Soul:
Fine dub-house track with deep detroit chords & sweet vocal samples, all topped off with a distinct old school flavoured groove. A hypnotic tune that will carry you into the early morning

Bio Rhythm:
Incredibly deep, slo mo monster of a tune. Smooth, mysterious chords and synths give this track a Detroit feel whilst the disco elements and “Can,t You See” vocal samples pump up the fun factor. Wait for the Bass-Line and watch your more discerning dancefloor explode.

Roman Rauch | Bobs Revenge

greetings.  Last month we introduced Viennese producer/dj, Roman Rauch.  His eclectic uptempo style is super refined and his sound is really growing and developing nicely.  Check out his latest beat courtesy of Roman’s soundcloud.  It is danceable, groovy and yet no so housey that a non-house listener can enjoy right off the bat.  Tell us what you think
