Electro and techno from Morocco's leading crew.
The nimble Motor City bass on "In A Maze," from Kosh's new EP, was bound to be a winner, with a pitch-bending lead giving an extra edge. It's the sort of audacious sound that will leave some on the fence, but this type of personality is often missing from the works of other producers working in this style. This also makes "Mix 1" stronger than the EP's other two electro-fied options, which hit the right pleasure centres for the Detroit sound without stepping outside the templates mined by others. While staying faithful to the originators, the title track is surprisingly soulful and housey, packed with the reflective qualities of a sure-shot tearjerker for the morning hours. "When The Story Repeats" pulls the same trick, but you can't blame Kosh for playing to his strengths.
