The name Roska is synonymous with underground house and bass music. Rising up in the bass-strong stage of funky house in 2007, the London producer's hard-edged take on the sound quickly picked up interest and cemented his name as one of the genre's pioneers. As some of you will know, UK funky fell asleep in 2010; there had been talks of a revival in 2014, but it never came to be. It's a new day, however, and Roska's leading the church with a brand new EP in Askin 4 It and a roster full of funky-indebted producers on his Kicks & Snares label. “The idea behind 'Toll Booth' came around two years ago,” Roska says of the EP's lead trackand it sounds as fresh as ever. Melodic strings and a sawtooth bassline are met by the beatboxing skills of Killa Kela who, in 2008, he met at a gig in Glasgow. “I grabbed the old UK funky samples I used during 2007 to 2012, and everything just gelled right.” Indeed, it did. Press play on it exclusively below.
