I’m not sure if they’re referring to the son
of Tarzan, town
in Nepal, or the language
from Papua New Guinea, but we’re proud to announce DA013 the Korak EP from Contakt
. The duo are behind TURRBOTAX®,
Brooklyn’s own XLR8R
sponsored “un-pretentious yet forward thinking and adventurous” club night at The Cove, now turning two years old
On “Korak” tropical percussion, 808 cowbells and an assortment of clicks and pops whir and collide around a throbbing, syncopated bass line. DA’s own Matt Shadetek provides a NYC 3Ball rework with nuff bass to rattle windows and rib cages. The b-side “Opar” is a study in tension and release with a more classic 4×4 house beat while Contakt & Mayster create a soundscape with reversed cymbals and filtered percussion. Doc Daneeka comes through with a UK Funky remix.
