The Revenge "Elements of Fife (Tone Mix)"

Glasgow's Graeme Clark is The Revenge, a contemporary artist mining the classic sounds of New York and Chicago house music for use in his modern productions. This analog-built tune, "Elements of Fife (Tone Mix)," is one such composition, and comes from a forthcoming compilation of similar tracks to be released via Steve Bug's Poker Flat imprint, called Forward to the Past (read more about it here). Clark wastes no time laying down the heavy 909 groove for his seven-minute jam, but does quite slowly add to the sparse, percussive mix with ticking rhythms and the subtlest of melodies. And though The Revenge calls upon the salad days of house to inspire "Elements of Fife," its aesthetic is still perfectly in line with many of the club burners we've been hearing of late. Here's to timeless dance music.
