Russell G - Skala



Over 6 years, and now close to 30 track outings, Russell G’s been keeping club floors on their toes with his own inimitable synthesis of trance & progressive house.

He’s released on, and remixed for many of the scene’s leading imprints - Spinnin’, Black Hole Recordings, Armada, In Charge and UltraViolet to tag but a handful. ‘Café Del Mar’, ‘Mantra’, ‘Shimmer’ and most recently (alongside regular VANDIT Bandit Paul Thomas!)
‘Fiji’ have each made significant impacts on Beatport’s trance chart throughout 2014 and early 2015.
This February, with the aerodynamic trance of ‘Skala’, Russell likewise becomes a member of the VANDIT artist family.
Frontend ‘Skala’ musters punch-packing midrange power with its daisycutting drums, tight-as-you-like perc loops, floor-engaging sub-riffs and breathless female harmonics. A cliff dive into the break’s aquiline melodic chords and ‘Skala’ promptly crosses the euphoric Rubicon, with a surging, devastating third act that’ll rattle club rafters from Birmingham to Brisbane!
Giving it a big 8/10 thumbs-up, in their March edition DJ Mag says “Skala’ holds a lot back in its intro”, but “when the riff strikes, it does so with considerably more force than expected, which on the floor comes as the happiest of surprises!
‘Skala’s out now and available from all good download stores.
