Ilija Rudman - Soul Embrace

Croatian Nu-disco/Funk/Boogie overlord Ilija Rudman has swung by around here. Once more he is spinning his audio gems on the legendary Bearfunk label. This time is the ever so funky new release ‘Soul Embrace’.

Ilija gets his Niles Rogers hat on and peppers this sparkler with chingy-funk guitar. Add in some big rolling, DX-style, chugger bass and lashes of darting percussion and there you have it…floor-filler dynamite. The ‘Original’ and the spectacularly 80’s styled ‘Extended Mix’ make an appearance. Our man also goes straight for the beat jugular with his drum, beat and percussion heavy ‘Bonus Beats Mix’.

To round things off, label head bear, Stevie Kotey, takes on the remix duties. He brings some real bass along to the party and new layers of slick keys. Turning down the floor quotient just a notch, this one is pure slow-burn disco done well, very well.
