Peak-time house heavy on drama.
His productions, which can be hit and miss, might have something to do with it. He's yet to make a real standout track, the kind that can alter the course of a career. That said, he's a solid talent, adept at crafting peak-time weapons heavy on theatrical sounds. Whiplash, the first EP on his new label, DJOKO Records, is a case in point. The title track, powered by a muscular groove and a head-spinning breakdown, will create big moments, though it could do without Djoko's cringey vocals. "Panic Is A Pheeling," another barnstormer, is simpler and better, with wacky sound effects zipping around a huge bassline. "Bernice," all soulful diva vocals, pounding techno drums and fizzing synths, is Floorplan-lite—you might as well go with the real thing. The EP rounds out with "Strangest Thing," a short yet dramatic jam with synths. It could cause chaos at the right moment.
