Mark Broom and James Ruskin have just unveiled the first single to their forthcoming album on the mighty Tresor Records, featuring British rapper King Kashmere. The LP demonstrates their rough-hewn fundamentals, roving melodies and investigative power, newly advanced by voice.
It’s Ruskin’s and Broom’s first time publishing any work under The Fear Ratio since ‘They Can’t Be Saved’, released on Skam in 2020, they enlist British rapper King Kashmere, who features on two tracks. Where James Ruskin has appeared on Tresor Records for his seminal albums ‘Point 2’, ‘Into Submission’, ‘The Dash’ and his recent ‘Siklikal’ EP, the only appearance of Mark Broom on the label is a 2002 remix of The Golden Apple by Eddie “Flashin” Fowlkes.
The duo unveiled this new work and collaboration with King Kashmere in a live show for a 30th Anniversary event for Tresor Berlin televised on Arte, performing amidst a battery of lights and fogged-up refraction. It demonstrated their rough-hewn fundamentals, roving melodies and investigative power, newly advanced by voice.
The first single ‘Spinning Globe’ captures Kashmere in a gritty flow over a swaggering beat, bouncing and resonant. This unsanded voice lends an enhanced texture and tension to the highly-processed sonic palette of Broom and Ruskin, accumulating with innate mettle.
The full L.P. is due for release on June 24th and you can pre-order it HERE.
Tresor Records also just announced a new EP 333 Mirrors from Torus, the artist alias of Joeri Woudstra. This drop on June 10th and can be pre-ordered HERE.
