We all here at cocoon still remember their label-debut as a duo. Timeless and kickin’ tech-house with hands-up-energy and potential to set dance floors on fire – until today! And it seems the two continued where they stopped in 2011 but without being copycats to themselves.Again we present a strong package here that pushes the listener to the floor.
The opening track “Share” is built around a cool and modulating bassline and the drums got spiced up with some oldskool flavour for all you Kink- and Guy-Gerber-fans out there: Chicago house as we like it! The added vocals round up the start of the e.p. and makes it perfect to welcome the first sun of the season.
“All About” seems to be a bit more deeper and relaxed at start – the good old “dub” like we used to know it from the high times of vinyl-djing. Again there is oldskool power in here: A massive open 909 HiHat, filtered sounds and vocals form a builder that turns more and more into a proper peaktime monster, too. Without noticing it this dub-like-smoother is morphing into massive floorfiller, great!
With “Resistance” the two seem to emphasis their improved and progressed sound even more. Banging drums, loud and kicking HiHats and Claps and those detroit-like backward vocals beam us back to the motorcity-techno-age.
The digi-bonus “The Warning” is following this vibe and style but looks more on the chicago side of house again. A rollin’ bassline, filtered vocals and a groovin’ drumloop that breathes the air of US-house-hero Pizarro makes this package nice and fat!
We have to thank Frank & Santé for saving the upcoming summer for us – this will be our sound of 2013!
