Cocoon
German duo Extrawelt are known for their tech-house on labels such as Darkroom Dubs, but they’ve always had a more adventurous side too, dabbling in breakbeats and atypical arrangements. Their latest album for Cocoon sees them embrace electro on tunes such as ‘We Are The Asteroid!’, where swung beats and modulated machine bass collide with cosmic, drifting tones. ‘Fischmarkt On Acid’ is a funky, almost Prince-like groove that then drops in hardcore like pads and seagull screeches, and ‘Streetwise’ is a wicked, electro/IDM fusion. ‘Unknown’ is excellent throughout, in fact.
