US born and meanwhile in Berlin residing Kevin McHugh aka Ambivalent presents his Cocoon Recordings single debut. Ambivalence seems to the be the musical direction here. „Daylights“ is a sheer technomonster, musclepacked and full of dark detroit flavour but the used vocal samples and the harmonic synthstrings can’t hide the magic touch of „Daylights“. Although the massive techno bassline is the star of this track we are sure it will find its way into the sets of many house DJs, too.
In contrast to that „Swung Out“ appears way more like pure techno and cannot be filed as house at all. We are hypnotized by the shuffled rim shots and hi-hats and Ambivalent drives this one straight through the dub universe. Techno is the destination and the dark vibe of „Swung Out“ makes it a perfect after hour weapon.
