RIYL: Horror soundtracks, Gaslamp Killer, DJ Shadow, Flying Lotus

Label: Raash Records

What the.. awesome! Dark, groovy stuff, not for the faint of hearted.

Ilia Gorowitz has the honour of dropping the first slab o’wax on the fresh label Raash Records, based in Jerusalem, Israel.

Stumbled across this just the other day, and it hit me like a shovel to the head.  The rugged, raw beat of “Turmoil”, backed with a deep, synth-bass could easily scare your kids from getting any sleep for weeks. Flipside “Simmering With No End” builds from some frightening percussion into becoming a fullblown dark horror-soundtrack.  No doubt this guy has seen his share of slasher-flicks.  Powerful stuff!  Really looking fw to what this label will bring on future releases.


The Details

RAASHEVA001: Ilia Gorowitz - Turmoil​/​Simmering With No End
Limited edition 7inch record, housed in a cardboard sleeve designed by Yuval Lacham.
300 units pressed total, only 100 available via Bandcamp.

From the scarred walls of Jerusalem comes Raash Records - home to the new flourishing scene of heavy mind-bending grooves.

The label kicks off with a debut 7inch by producer/musician Ilia Gorovitz. It's an explosive mixture of raw drums, gut-shaking riffs and head-swirling synths, influenced by the 1970's horror film soundtracks and today's bass-heavy electronica - a combination that makes it appeal equally to psych and beat heads alike.

Side A's "Turmoil" is a dirty and aggressive mid-tempo slasher, backed with a krauty crawling horror downbeat of "Simmering with No End" on the flipside.
