Soccius marked Bad Shoes Records first release ever, Zoo Colors (BSR0001 - 2010), with a high standard of flavor and groove for the rest to follow. The Latin-flavored electro producer first came in contact with label head Baan circa2006 and ever since they have established a relationship exchanging remixes and providing feedback for each other frequently. Fast forward to less than a year after Zoo Colors for the single-track EP release Viva Tropical. The song presents a more mature and developed Soccius; playfully experimenting with chilled back housy vibes, yet still sounding unique and fresh. On this release, Ghosts on Tape and DJ Nisus provide a remix of Viva of their own. The Southern California resident Soccius (Born Jose Rene Heras) continues to produce and collaborate with his Bad Shoes peers and 2012 might give us a full length – it can’t come soon enough!
