Sometimes producers land on a drum pattern that simply makes you move. Dasha Rush has done exactly this through her use of minimal, clipped drum sounds that sit alongside a growling aquatic, dare-I-say-Drexciyan bass line. It’s not hard to see how she came up with the name of the track – Ocean Sharp. People often say that minimal is boring but, every so often, it has an indescribable shuffle that gets your rump shaking – minimal done right.
TIP: Check the flip ‘Ocean Shy’ for a beautiful ambient track, probably what Dasha Rush is better known for since her brilliant and critically acclaimed album, ‘sleepstep’.
