The Californian producer put together an album of beats from the last few months of 2018.
I found Ruffian Kick last year while waiting for a plane from Nice back to the UK. I was glad to find a new release in 2019 and his most recent is a belter. LEAVES. is, as he describes it himself:
some beats from the fall & winter seasons. utilizing the SP-555, PO-33 KO, ABLTON and my SP404sx. thanks for supporting! 2019 is gonna be fun.
There’s a warmth that rises through each track; on the samples themselves and from the quality of the vinyl and 404 compressor. Ruffian flips everything from old-time jazz to quiet storm on LEAVES. and even if it’s getting warmer as we inch towards summer, you can still find comfort in the beats on offer.
