Restless Leg Syndrome is a neurological disorder characterized by an irresistible urge to move one’s body to stop uncomfortable or odd sensations. -Wikipedia
This musical team from Austria may cause a similar urge in the body, but with zero harm and fully voluntary movements. The trio that make up Restless Leg Syndrome include long time DJ and producer, d.b.h. and Austria’s DJ champion title holders for the last decade, producers and turntable wizards, Chrisfader and Testa. Their concept behind the joint venture is to take a specific genre of music, sample and flip it into a danceable beats. With the amount of talent and experience this wicked trio hold, they have created a sound that is groovy, grungy and one-of-a-kind.
Their new record “Roots” is Restless Leg Syndrome’s own personal version of traditional Tyrolean sounds combined with beats and cuts. These guys had every instrument recorded for this project and it is evident when listening. Every note is crisp, crunchy, and contagious, giving you no choice but to at least head bob, butt sway, shoulder shrug or full on get low and rock out.
After listening to the album over and over, its depth and distinctive sound make me fall in love with it more and more each time. It blows my mind that they only have just over 2000 followers. With talent and top-notch tunes like these guys have, that number needs to change. Spread the word fellow melomaniacs!
