Songs We Love: Tessela, 'Rough 2'
British producer Ed Russell rose to fame last year on the success of his breakbeat single "Hackney Parrot," an instant classic that gradually took over radio shows and dance floors and topped many year-end lists. "Rough 2" is his first Tessela single post-hype, and it doesn't disappoint. Russell employs a monster jungle break on the song's defining hook, a lop-sided two-second loop that we can't get out of our heads. The rest of the song isn't too shabby, either.
