Felix Clary Weatherall aka Ross From Friends has been one of the most interesting electronic musicians in recent years with his off-kilter house-inspired tunes and a vastly eclectic selection of samples throughout his music. His 2018 debut album Family Portrait was an excellent representation of his talents as he paid homage to his family, creating some stellar compositions throughout that made him an exciting figure within the music scene in the UK.
He is back with a 5 track titled Epiphany, which consists of 3 original cuts and 2 edits. The title track kicks the project off with this futuristic, synth-heavy melody that builds up into this dance-heavy beat with colourful synths and melodies that just develop into a catchy and infectiously groovy rhythm. The vocal samples are suffocating, as he also uses glitchy electronics that remind me of something Burial or even Aphex Twin would produce. “The Revolution” similarly is groovy, with its tribal beat and soulful vocal samples that just sound beautiful throughout. The thumping, futuristic tone of “Phantom Ratio” is heavy, as electronic effects are sprinkled throughout, making for an engaging listen. The two edits are also a great addition to the EP. Overall, Ross From Friends is able to craft a fun, upbeat and incredibly catchy project.
