From dark funky to pop
Roska - Rinse: 15

Roska, just like his fellow pirate radio affiliates Skream, Benga and Zinc manages to balance upon a fine line of rhythmic trend. This London producer is just as likely to produce or remix a straight-up pop song with the vocal help of commercial cross-over luminaries such as Katy B, Jamie George and Ms Dynamite, as to fashion a dark abstract Plastic People approved electronic banger such as ‘Squark’ or ‘Jackpot’. With this twenty-five-track mix, Roska showcases a lot of his own productions to forge his great tip toeing between the darker side of funky and the pop hits that have attached themselves to its swirling coat tails.

7/10
