Belgium music producer Ruben Schruers, known as Milky Bass, has been fascinated by electronic dance music since he was a child. He started making his first beats on the computer at a young age and moved on to complete his studies in Electronic Music Production.
As part of the LGBTQ+ community, Milky Bass’ goal is to bring more diversity into the EDM scene. His artist name is in honour of deceased American Politician Harvey Milk, while the ‘bass’ part is the promise of the groovy dance music he delivers, inspired by the sounds of Sofi Tukker, Benny Benassi and Fedde le Grand.
‘Ride You’ is a hypnotic, sexual future house track by the newest electronic music producer on the scene, Milky Bass featuring the eclectic vocals of Juana Rinaldi. Designed to be a perfect listening experience, the experimental journey is infused with out of place rhythms, conflicting sounds, and easy breaks.
Milky Bass is an overwhelming narrative. Through solid arrangements and solid programming, this EP becomes a vehicle for reverential music that manages to spill out enough of the artist's own ideas to shake off the high era, allowing it to exist in its own right as credible.
We do not know what the future holds, but we do know that this EP is testimony to a turbulent and uncertain present, which will remain in our memory forever. For records like this, we can continue to fight for a better future.
