This is an overlooked gem of last years releases of 2011. Minneapolis-based electronic duo Elite Gymnastics have been said to be rave revivalists of the new generation.
This album draws clear inspiration from 90’s techno, bringing back the breakbeat/ hardstyle drum pattern. This fast-paced dance music is then paired by soft vocals and a laid back attitude, adding a level of euphoria to the album. This can be seen is songs like “Omari” and “Here In Heaven”. There is even a layer of beach rock-inspired indie in this album as well as heard in little things. This is definitely a bold, new, exciting route electronic is taking with the recent revival of the 90’s. Ruin has been released in 3 other forms as well one being a more laid-back chill version of the 1st, and the the others being remixes and a box set. Check out their video for Here In Heaven below!
