Be prepared to be wowed, as Crosstown Rebels deliver a serious slice of hot new music from new talent Russ Yallop AKA Rusty James. ‘I Can’t Wait’ and ‘Rock Me’ are two infectious cuts with massive appeal.
Combining the magnetism of disco with the raw energy of contemporary house music, Russ Yallop produces a fresh take on a trusted formula. A side ‘I Can’t Wait’ is unforgettable for its contagious bassline, flirtatious vocal cries, cosmological synths and perpetual breakdowns. With just as much appeal and even more originality, B side ‘Rock Me’ leans on funk laden stabs chopped into sonic grooves and humming vocals, drawing towards a beautiful, driving climax that rocks like a mutha!
Part of a new breed including close friends and peers Jamie Jones, Lee Foss, Richie Ahmed and Robert James, Russ Yallop’s sound is infected with warm charm and endless energy. Fusing fun into dance music again, these young artists are creating a new strain of house music that is currently taking the underground movement by storm and promises bright things for the future.
Russ Yallop has been a long term friend of the Rebels, his talent growing as each year passes, 2010 has seen him release on labels such as Mothership and Leftroom as Rusty James. ‘I Can’t Wait / Rock Me’ takes him to another level and heralds another exciting young artist from the Rebel camp.
