Ross From Friends - Family Portrait (Album)
This is one of the best tech house albums I have heard hands down. This is just simple easy listening from start to finish.
Dutch producer Martyn once explained to me how incredibly hard it is to find a dance album that doesn't have a skippable track from cover to cover. Off the top of my head the only people who've done it are the likes of Larry Heard, Martyn, Skream and Mala. Ofcourse they're the only people who spring to my mind I'm sure there are plenty of others but it's just really difficult to come across a dance album that is great from start to finish.
Ross From Friends has definitely done it with this album. The use of vocals on majority of these tracks is perfect. He filters them perfectly. Some of my favourite vocals on any dance production ever honestly.
The way he gets a bit tribal on some of the tracks and then can get dark and moody.
It's just great listening. Definitely worth the purchase.
