Boris Ross & Baggi – What You Do
Boris Ross & Baggi link up for two suitably hard hitting tracks on Loco Dice’s mighty Desolat label.
Baggi was raised in Bosnia but is now based in Rotterdam and across the course of twenty years he has put out house and tech tinged with a classic style on labels like Defected. He has also done studio work for giants like Christina Aquilera and Tiesto while playing major clubs and festivals round the world. His partner here is Dutchman Boris Ross who always cooks up tracks that blow up the floor. Between them they use an array of hardware and FX pedals, synths and drum machines to really make a big impact.
Fantastically wonky opener, ‘What You Do’ is more stripped back but still has killer bass and rugged drums that will get the club marching. Synth stabs and loopy vocals all help lock you into the groove while wonky pads add charm to the whole thing.
‘Owl’ is a brilliantly wild and energetic cut with prickly synths, big vocal samples and rolling, high impact drums. It bristles with vitality like the best of early Windy City house music and has a streetwise swagger that fits perfectly with this label.
These are superbly effective club tracks as ever from Desolat.
