Kotek proves himself once again as a versatile artist worthy of your listening time, as he delivers his latest mashup of mutated sounds on Gramatik’s legendary Lowtemp Music label. Possessing a keen vision for explorative yet dancefloor-friendly beats, Kotek rides the line between stomping energy and precise technical wizardry, forging these into a unique experience in the form of “Tangent.”
Presenting itself with an arpeggiated, synth-driven introduction, the retro vibe gets more sinister as creeping chirps swirl upward into the big-beat drop. Proudly displaying a B-boy-esque attitude on top of hard-edged synth work, “Tangent” lives up to its name by twisting into electro-themed urban warfare in the finale.
With Kotek’s aim to inject fresh ideas into the dance music landscape, combined with Lowtemp’s visionary team, the stage is set for some exciting experiments in 2018. Keep it locked.
