Ross From Friends Adds His Dreamy Lo-Fi Touches To Westerman’s ‘Edison’

Championing lo-fi house for several years—and making the rounds on the web pretty fast thanks to his excellent name—Ross From Friends has shaken and stirred Westerman’s Edison into a warm, intelligent piece of house music.

Ross From Friends is, quite simply, an innovator. Seeing Edison as a draft for his own percussive scramblings, he intensifies it with his flourishes of dreamy production. Filing his own emotive contexts into the mix, Ross From Friends not only remixes Edison, but makes it entirely his own without diminishing Westerman’s exemplary source material. He injects his widescreen pathology of patient and pertinently stacked new age textures.

Warm and upbeat, the track is a creative masterpiece in terms of skittery production. After Ross From Friends has placed his spin on it, you’d be hard pressed to label this electronic music after all. His compositions are entirely genuine—providing that leaping head start on genre placards. Edison is for the purple skied 5pm afternoons.
