This time they are teaming up with German duo Soolver who have previously worked with imprints like Ballroom Records and Reload Black Label. Their track “Got Me” has a compelling vocal sample and epic breakdown amidst a thumping techno groove.
Loco & Jam are an Irish duo famed for their many tracks and remixes on influential labels ranging from Drumcode and Octopus to Relief. Their track “The Awakening” has building tension, moody atmosphere and dystopian textures that combine to create an immersive dance floor experience.
