Boomkat Product Review:
Heavily skewed and scrambled dance music from the #FEELINGS camp: "the ‘Tuff Turf Rough Stuff’ full-length album by Kansas City-based artist Norrit. The album delivers 12 brilliant doses of his signature stripped-down, lo-fi/hi-fi hybrid house/club music production style that are reminiscent of a dream collaboration between Mr. Oizo and Mr. Fingers, recorded on a scratched cassette tape in 1992 and remixed by an alien in 2092. Thick layers of pulsing melody distort beautifully over compressed kick drums and raw, chopped vocal samples, referencing early house/techno & ball/vogue culture. With 'Tuff Turf Rough Stuff', Norrit has created a truly unique, fresh aesthetic for 2015 and beyond. In the past few years, Norrit’s original tracks and remixes have been released by prominent underground club music labels such as Palms Out Sounds, B.YRSLF DIVISION, Nightshifters, and Car Crash Set, including official remixes for Star Slinger and Marcus Price & Carli."
