Rossi. returns to HOMEGROWN., unveiling the second release on the label – ‘I’ve Been Waiting’.
An artist constantly in the record boxes of the scene’s biggest names and a core figure amongst the ‘new generation’ pushing the UK house and minimal scene forward, yet a DJ/producer with an ever-growing global profile, the demand for Rossi. and his seemingly never-ending list of unreleased productions go hand in hand.
Continually levelling up, last summer saw him showcasing his wider creative vision as an artist even further as he unveiled a project a long time in the works, his own label HOMEGROWN., with the first ‘Welcome’ EP racking up love from Enzo Siragusa, Cristi Cons, Varhat, Djebali and Chris Stussy to name just a few. Returning after a brief hiatus, with an impressive schedule set to drop across the year ahead, he returns this March to offer up the sophomore EP on the label with four heavily-requested productions across ‘I’ve Been Waiting’.
The snappy and provocative ‘Honey I’m…’ is an example of the UK talent as his best, utilising playful, hooky female vocal snippets above snaking grooves and skippy drums to open proceedings, while A2 ‘Fly’ utilises a squelchy bassline and sharp drums to keep the energy levels high. On the flip, the rugged and no-nonsense ‘Knock Knock’ opens the B-side with authority as driving low-ends take hold before journeying into a more tonal production guided by blooming synths, with the resonant and cosmic tones of ‘Wildcard’ stripping things back to close on a serene tip.
The package is also the first EP on the label released in a physical format, with the records pressed using ECO-Mix – reusing old, discarded and damaged vinyl as a more sustainable way of pressing records while offering a unique colour and look across each record for owners.
”HOMEGROWN. – sounds influenced by a product of their environment.”
