Following Eddie Niguel's 'Back2Basics' Remix EP release on Integrity is the debut EP by Italian house stalwart Kocleo. First appearing on the label with an impressive remix, Kocleo delivers four house-inspired cuts filled with rich analog goodness along with his signature style.
Prying the EP open in a big way is title track, 'Choice', a uniquely crafted arrangement with warped vocals, pensive pads and bubbling accents bouncing off a rising bassline to raise those hands in the air. In a deep west coast house vein but with more bang, 'Unity', plays quick keys off broken chords and a jackin low-end -- always a great interplay. Kocleo gets into a darker, noisier and grittier room for the afterhour-pleaser 'Keep Faith' before 'Get It On' closes the EP with a fat and squelching bassline chugger for the lovers of all things house and analog.
