A year on from his Crazylegs debut, TRC delivers an immaculate new single, ably assisted by the immensely talented Lily McKenzie.
Closer follows the boisterous flair of last year’s Come Bring It with a more reflective mood - a sparkling arrangement of pianos, strings and impeccably swung 2-step drums, crafted by one of our country’s most accomplished production talents with a crispness and clarity that few can match. This is authentic UK soul music with one foot on the dancefloor and a firm nod to the garage greats.
TRC’s underground pedigree is untouchable - one of the original pioneers of the bassline scene and, later, one of the key producers in the early days of the Butterz label, in 2014 he maintains a low profile - quietly refining his skills producing behind the scenes for a number of established UK vocalists. Closer is a dazzling reminder of his ability and experience.
