There's not much to "Bossa Grv": Ringer dumped a lilting guitar sample from a Getz & Gilberto record into his MPC and teased it out over a twitchy drum track. But the rhythms are enough to set Ringer apart. While most producers are content to ride a monotonous kick for eight minutes, he switches things up every 16 bars, working with a drum kit that includes white noise, a stutter-step kick and a ride cymbal that crescendos into the beautiful sample. His inability to play things straight might make "Bossa Grv" tough on DJs, but the approach is memorable. Even the bonus beats version, stripped of all melodic content save a steady three-note bassline, is full of personality.
B-side "To The Bone" feels like Ringer's tribute to Dance Mania, full of bedspring percussion and smash-and-grab snare patterns. But it maintains a swinging, deep groove. The tune's smooth synth sax and tough, melodic bass put it in the realm of Vincent Floyd's dreamy Dance Mania records.
