Roche "Love You Crazy (Livestyle Version)"
- Words: Derek Opperman
With an ever-expanding digital back catalog, Roche is a San Francisco-based artist that we've been following for some time now. The last we heard from him, he had remixed "Age" for Bay Area production duo Wav Dwgs. Since then he's been releasing a steady stream of tracks online, one of which is the excellent "Love You Crazy (Livestyle Version)." Moving through the claustrophobic and paranoid dreamscape of Detroit beatdown, Roche constructs tight deep house in the best sense of the word. The track has actually been sitting on his soundcloud page for more than six months, and we don't generally make a habit of posting older tracks on XLR8R.com, but given that it has less than 150 plays to date, we figured that the song is still new to 99.9% of the population and an exception to the rules was in order. For something fresher, check out the similarly well-crafted "The Morning After," which Roche only unveiled a couple of weeks back.
