Another beast of a release from the Coco Machete imprint

Alert the wardens. The animals are trying to escape from the electro zoo.

Coco Machete have outdone themselves again, bringing us Moscow-based Polymorphic’s Apocalypse EP, which with its quirky stylings and hectic pace wouldn’t be out of place in the record bags of Crookers or Erol Alkan.

The highlight is the Noise Invaders remix, a menagerie of synthesised shrieks, purrs and what could be the trumpeting of frenzied elephants joining forces in a solid tune that chugs along like a tractor.

Session remixers Noise Invaders (most recently turning their hands on Chromeo’s ‘Don’t Turn The Lights On’) have stayed true to the original, only given it spikes and claws to walk around on. The breakdown takes us back to early-90s rave country, while crunchy percussion keeps things tight as a cat’s… well, you know. In a sandstorm.

If this is the apocalypse, let’s just lie back and enjoy it.

The Apocalypse EP features the original mix as well as remixes by Marseille and Noise Invaders. It’s available now on Beatport.

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
