It's been about 10 months since the young, Berlin-based producer Rkss had some new tunes to share. Still, it seems the budding artist hasn't lost his step, as "Submerged"—the title track from Rkss' new EP out today—again finds the artist mining the more experimental ends of house and techno, and coming back with another promising piece of audio. Its set of tuned chords effortlessly lead the proceedings, as a bevy of organic percussion sounds and metallic hits wrap around the steady four-on-the-floor kick below. Best yet, it all comes with just the right touch of electronic weirdness to keep listeners on their toes.
