Premiere: RNBWS – Radical Decisions

Russian producer RNBWS, real name Maxim Nikolaev, lands on Munich-based outpost RFR Records with ‘Radical Decisions‘, a three track EP of no-nonsense dance music to close out the year.

With a catalogue stretching over dubstep and electro, Maxim has caught support from Paleman to Nina Kraviz — landing on RFR for the first time, this time it seems the producer’s going full rave. Straight-up dancefloor business the whole way through, RNBWS delivers heat across each track — but it’s the extended player’s titular track which clinches the prize.

Radical Decisions‘ binds the guiding elements of electro into a fierce formula, just right for stirring up a floor. Despite the several total breakpoints, RNBWS leaves little room for air: throwing in dashes of bleary noise, hard techno aesthetic, and acid trance wind-tunnel energy to the mix, when the track cuts completely it’s only to emphasise the toughness when it slams back in. Rough and ready, weaponised material for sweaty floors.

‘Radical Decisions’ EP is scheduled for release 22 December via RFR Records. Order a copy from Bandcamp
