Township Rebellion & Victor Pilava – Bohemia/Mephisto, released on 20.01.2023. by Truesoul – TRUE12151
The artists have been building steam in recent years via memorable releases on Rüfüs du Sol Rose Avenue and Stil Von Talent. Their latest cut, the sublime ‘Doppler’, caught the ear of Adam Beyer and after meeting with the Truesoul boss in early 2021, the ground was laid for a label debut.
‘Bohemia’ is a gritty bass face-inducing ride through rolling rhythms and crisp drumlines and reinforces the idea that the best ideas are often the simple ones. ‘Mephisto’ meanwhile is one of Township Rebellion’s most requested track I.D’s to date and was a special highlight of their show at São Paolo’s Arca supporting Rüfüs du Sol. The track is propelled by a chugging bottom-end, evocative strings courtesy of violinist Roemisch and otherworldly melody lines.
