In the last five years, Rene LaVice has certainly cemented his name amongst the big leagues. His debut LP â€˜Insidiousâ€™ on the Ram Records imprint was met with critical acclaim across the board, building anticipation for every subsequent release. Whether itâ€™s receiving daytime radio airplay on the Radio1 A list or being played out at the UKâ€™s most underground clubs, each output has shown impeccable production standards.
His second LP â€˜Play with Fireâ€™ and its remix compilation once again pedestalled the Canadian producerâ€™s talent. He delivered a carefully woven set of records that channel an energy which is inherently his.
Capitalising on this endeavour, the â€˜Richter Scaleâ€™ EP follows the same path, dipping into an array of sub genres to create his own signature sound. With an extensive collection of track mixes, from Trap to House, he shows a cross pollination of BPMs that bring together the very best of his discography. Although, this only comes naturally to a consummate artistâ€¦ Especially one who delves into the world of both film making and music.
Title-track â€˜Richter Scaleâ€™ was the product of a Bud Light campaign earlier this year, which saw Rene take centre stage and inject a 174 infusion of cranking drums and tell-tale snare. An elusive intro with gradually rising and falling pads takes you deep into the crevice of his mind. Following in quick succession is the House and Trap edits; whilst the House edit transports you into a first thumping dimension of bass, its Trap counterpart takes you on a journey given momentum by its 808s.
â€˜Some Things Never Changeâ€™ is a totally fresh offering from LaVice, with metallic, distorted instrumentals taking you on a frog march, ramped up by its energetically slick bassline. Weaving through the mix is a vocal which adds to its loftier air, giving it a more haunting twist between its stockier elements. And finally, the multi-genre extended version of â€˜Richter Scaleâ€™, giving you a full frontal assault of every genre switch up provided throughout the EPâ€™s entirety. Even more proof that Rene LaVice is a master of his craft, from beginning to end.
