Here’s one we’ve all been waiting for for a while. I’m pretty sure the Los Angeles trio known as The Royal Rumble have somehow managed to purloin a book of trade secrets from Steve Jobs, because it seems to me that the manor in which they release their tracks is strikingly similar to that of Apple: They keep you wanting more than you can have, by releasing a single incredible (and may I emphasize incredible) mix at intervals far longer than you’d prefer. In short, if the Royal Rumble three happen to read this, let me assure them, their techniques are proving quite fruitful, seeing as each of their releases leaves me both incredibly satisfied, and yet itching for more at the same time.
This latest track, a remix of Graveleaf’s “The Crusade” continues to embrace the familiar Royal Rumble sound (which, for those of you who’re finding yourselves a little confused, consists largely of whoops, whops, and other loopy and almost [pardon me if I'm overstepping my boundaries here] minimal sounding noises) but that’s not to say that it has, in any way, become repetitive. In fact, for those who’ve found themselves reading my lengthy trains of thought in hopes that you might find a few solid tracks to throw in your next set, the smooth transitions and gentle progression that tie this thoroughly bouncy track together will likely prove to be exactly what you’re looking for.
Go ahead. Indulge yourself.
