Frederik Olufsen – Rocks (Coco Machete)

Written by lmercedes

That cover is loaded with possible interpretations.

Could it be the binding of a conscientious documentation of geological studies? Don’t be silly, of course it’s not. Is it a screaming declaration of self-satisfaction? Perhaps… but for now, this is the latest release off New York label Coco Machete, by up-and-comer Frederik Olufsen.

Besides leaving subliminal messages in his record covers, this industrious Dane has been a very busy boy churning out the tunage all year round. His latest “Rocks” is a squelchy slice of highly polished electro made in the spirit of dubstep.

Amid sparse percussion and wobs lifted directly off Dooms Night (Azzido da Bass happens to be a stable mate) (hyperlink) come stabs of dazzling synth and a deep, twisted vocal. It’s a tune that will work in many a situation, often changing pace but never losing its energy.

Okay, that cover is justified: Frederik Olufsen most definitely rocks. Rocks EP is available on Beatport now.

Words: Leonie Mercedes

Arty, Nadia Ali & BT – Must Be The Love (Official Music Video)

February 24, 2013

BT is a legend of Trance production, Nadia Ali is a legend of Trance vocals. Any team up between these two is bound to be good, but when you throw in relative newcomer but excellent producer Arty into the mix as well, are we witnessing collaborative genius or are too many cooks spoiling the broth?… View Article

Kirsty – Hands High (Afrojack Radio Edit)

February 23, 2013

Who is Kirsty? We don’t know either, but this looks like her attempt to crack the commercial dance scene and she’s enlisted the help of Afrojack who provides remix duties. Apparently Sander Van Doorn said “supporting!” and David Guetta said “huge!” Although we’d question how much thought they gave to their answers when questioned. The… View Article
