Okidoki feat. Gavin Turek – I Want You

GOMMA221 Final

Gomma comes back with heavy DJ material: A 3 track Disco House EP by OkiDoki – including a great remix by Xinobi from Discotexas. OkiDoki is the new cross continental brainchild of producers Jesse Rogg (Banks, Sam Sparro, etc) and Rob Rox (Lupe Fiasco, Paper Diamond, etc). Fusing together 80ies boogie, funk house and a bit of italodisco. This project was formed to let out their inner child, letting it play in the grass, frolic in the sea and twirl in the night. With vocal stylings by US songstress Gavin Turek and english lyricist Jont, the tracks are primed for the more funky house clubs, the nasty beaches and the independent radio waves alike.

OkiDoki is A-OK!

New COEO EP on Toy Tonics

DSCF1289_e_m

Here comes the new COEO 3 tracker. And we get exactly what we all hoped for: Very New York-ish Loft House. Nasty dancefloor bombs with a heavy Funk feel – based on smoothly rolling, MPC cutted drum breaks. Lot of filters and lots of warm chords.

This is the 4th COEO EP on Toy Tonics. Time to tell who they are:
Andi & Flo come from a village two hours from Munich. Where people wear Lederhosen and stuff. The boys were outsiders. Being the only ones loving skate culture and buying hip hop vinyl. Enough is enough: they moved to Munich. And started to hang out with the guys from Schlachthofbronx. Learning tricks and doing the first DJ gigs in the Bass scene.

Till they played a gig with Diplo. Afterwards they decided: Bass and Trap sound wasn’t their thing. Neither the German Deep House Techno. Andi & Flo come from Hip Hop, they had a MPC and lots of old records: of course the logic evolution was: House music. The black version – with lots of funk samples. The New York Vibe. This was their thing!

After meeting with the Toy Tonics crew things took off. Now, two years later – the boys had several no.1 spots on the Traxsource and Juno House charts. DJs from all kind of scenes are playing their tracks. Anti & Flo are not outsiders in the village anymore, but part of a growing new scene of German producers – friends who make music in a funky, analogue way. With lots of love for Jazz and Disco.

When COEO make a track, they work like Old School Hip Hop producers: They always start with the beats. Then they cut the samples in away that rarely you would recognize the original song. COEO tracks often consist up to 50 different bits of records layered one over the other. This creates these special loops they are famous for. Listen to their two most successful tracks: Native Riddim and Back In The Days – that special rolling house groove immediately makes you move.. you get in a good mood. It’s that warm, early 1970ies atmosphere that reminds of JazzFunk labels like CTI. Where the bassline and the rhodes piano chrods where the fundament of the piece.

You can feel the joy that the Coeo boys probably have in the studio …and in their life. Good mood guys. They guys seem to spend their complete life with music: Andi is a student for sound-engineering and Flo seems to have the best job in the world: teaching schoolgirls electronic music production.

Also watch out for the COEO Disco Edits EP (Vinyl only) out later in spring 2017!
