Bruk Rogers

Released: 21 Feb 2023

Label: Tru Thoughts

Bruk Rogers aka Cian McCann (Zero T/Zero Tolerance/Searchlight) shares his new single “Style”, a bleepy, bass-lead, itchy shuffler laced with deep chords and a cosmic breakdown. Plus announces a new show with the seminal broken beat pioneers CoOp alongside Zed Bias, Ben Hauke, and Bugz in the Attic at The Ton Of Brix on 25th Feb. Talking about the new tune, Cian adds: “It’s cheeky, dark, funny and deep at various points in its sonic journey”.

It’s the follow-up to Bruk Roger’s debut single ”LDN 313″ a sonic clash between the cities of London (LDN) and Detroit (area code 313), that was praised by Music Is My Sanctuary, Dummy, and Lefto. Both tracks form part of an upcoming album from the versatile producer, landing on planet earth soon.

The wonky riff-led “Style” single comes with an edit for DJs to get the dancefloor moving. Sitting in the broken beat pantheon, inspiration for the track comes from old school Seiji and Mark Force productions, the recent Wipe The Needle releases, a dab of Kool & The Gang with a pinch of Flat Eric. Testing out “Style” at Birmingham’s legendary Bruk Up (Hare & Hounds) night, the track went down a treat with the crowd, getting wheel upped with an amazing reaction to a more rugged side of bruk.

The Bruk Rogers alias was born out of Cian’s long-held love of the broken beat genre, and its recent resurgence spearheaded by labels such as Tru Thoughts, Rhythm Section International, Selectors Assemble and Eglo Records. Aesthetically and eponymously influenced by watching endless reruns of the 70s sci-fi adventure series Buck Rogers, the mischievous alias was coined with the help of a friend. “My older brothers wanted to call me Twiki – so it’s all a bit of good fun and kitsch nostalgia!” Cian says.
