3 Track EP Of Pumpin Tech / Techno with Dark Spoken Vocal- Rebuke returns to Drumcode with a trio of timeless dancefloor weapons.
The Irishman’s ‘Rattle’ was a standout of 2019, judged by DJ Mag as their no.22 top track of the year and is etched in the Drumcode discography as one of the most original releases to date. A valued part of Adam Beyer’s extended collective; he would have made his Drumcode event debut at WMC in Miami this March. Without a doubt, a sophomore EP was always on the cards.
‘Instatik’ kicks the work into gear, a rugged, reverb-heavy cut with industrial drums that pump like pistons and an undulating synth effect that makes you feel like you’re on a turbo-charged rollercoaster. ‘Livewire’ has the trademark Rebuke brain-scrambling stamp on it, a flurry of steelyard percussion bring the track to life, before a low-end melody swells to attention, rubbing shoulders deliciously with driving drumlines, for an uplifting second half. The title track ‘Obscurity’ is a dark slice of techno funk, filled with synapse-tickling arpeggios, before a rollicking groove takes hold and launches the track home at full-flight. Another thrilling and innovative release to add to the Rebuke canon.
“I think 2020 will go down in history as the craziest year of our lifetime. The future is still pretty unknown right now and things are drastically changing week to week. With that in mind, I felt ‘Obscurity’ would be a fitting title for my second Drumcode EP. It represents the state of being unknown, unclear or difficult to understand – feelings I’m sure most of us are going through right now. Most the tracks aside from ‘Livewire’ were written in quarantine; ‘Livewire’ was written right before the virus shut the world down, in a hotel room in Lima, Peru in January. This EP is my favourite to date as I think it shows a different side to my musical palette, whilst still developing the signature sound heard in all my music.” – Rebuke

Rebuke is a melodic punk / hardcore band from Gothenburg, Sweden that has been around since 2003. Their brand of music has it's roots in the mid 90s californian punk rock scene, but is blended with a bit of hardcore and a few slices of metal riffs, to form a distinct sound.
Lyrically they cover everything from politics to personal topics, always in a sophisticated manner to fit the music like a glove. After being a trio for a long time the band got a new drummer and a second guitarist in early 2008. Over the years they've put out an array of DIY releases, but the latest album "Wouldworks", really stands out as a new top watermark for the band, both performance and sound wise. In 2009 they did one tour of Europe and one to the UK which dramatically has improved their playing skills. In 2010 they signed with Kickass Records in Belgium and Disconnect Disconnect Records in the UK.
Refusing to slow down, or give up over the fact that their music might not be what the radio wants to play, labels want to sign, or even what the kids of today listens to on Myspace while dyeing their hair, Rebuke continues to rage on with their speedy drumming, catchy hooks and heavy riffs.
