Ruff Draft – Illusion Fracture

Explore the appealing juxtaposition and pure beats of Illusion Fracture, the new release by Ruff Draft. Fusing his unique, non-nonsense approach into the Alpha Pup space-time continuum, Ruff Draft creates an appealing interplay of light and dark; high and low; warm soul and cold space.

There’s a certain elegance to Ruff Draft’s sound, an effortless blend of sonorous melodies on top of barbarian beats. Inspired by anime and the sci-fi soundscapes of the 1980s, Illusion Fracture translates the feel of the decade into a modern texture.

“Overt Miracles/Beliefs (feat. GoYama)” launches the album with a captivating playground of jazzy beats and cosmic resonance. Heavy with purpose yet refined in melody, “Curry and Cookies (feat. Mr. Carmack)” is head-nod magic, almost meditative.

Layering porcelain vocals over twilight synths, “Foes and Folly (feat. Swoonz)” has the dreamy vibe of an otherworldly lullaby. “Messages” closes the sound feast with a soul classic beats that shuffle and stutter their way between complexity and raw simplicity.

Tilt your head back, close your eyes and listen.
