(A1) DMT - Ride
(B1) Fabe – Last Shot For Bob
released June 1, 2018
DMT aka Dorian Paic, Markus Fix and Tobi Neumann dig a little deeper on their next offering. “Ride" does exactly what it says on the tin, taking you on a nine-minute journey that starts with an extended build-up, offering a tantalising glimpse of what’s to come. From then on, House chords and dub elements abound, complemented throughout by beguiling melodic lines, hypnotic vocal samples, effects and some smooth filter action. This co-production from three Tech House specialists harmonises perfectly, creating a well-rounded, homogeneous track that leaves you craving for more!
Born in Berlin but ‘living the life’ in Mannheim, Fabe is the next insider tip on Cocoon worth keeping an eye on. Already shaking up clubs around the world, he’s also part of the Cocoon Ibiza line up this year! However he’s not only turning heads as a DJ, his productions also work on an extremely high level featuring a unique sound signature. His Cocoon Recordings track "Last Shot For Bob" creaks, growls, clatters, squeaks and knocks in all directions creating an incredibly cool and, above all, groovy sound. It’s electronic noise-funk served up in the best techno and house fashion, that drags you onto the dance floor and drenches you in pleasure.
Beltran’s music has a refreshing but decidedly “uncool” earnestness that channels the sense of naïve exploration that fueled much of the best golden-era club music. Bandcamp Album of the Day Apr 2, 2021
