Getting jiggy with the EDM sound of 2014 but still taking a stance for those who think different, CCM rappers Rapture Ruckus open this EP with the up-and-kicking "In Crowd." "We ain't never gonna be in the in crowd" they declare with a hook that's attractive enough to fill the dancefloor, but that conceptual oxymoron is followed by the straight-up and disco-fueled "Everybody Get Up," as if KC & the Sunshine Band were jettisoned into the future and can now be found in the CCM section. Electro and rap-rock show up later on the EP, which ends up coming off as a right-sized, poppy, and genre-jumping experiment for the group. Good times, even if fans expecting the usual Ruckus are bound to be thrown.
