This is a duo who can do no wrong on the dance floors and the sweaty underground clubs at the moment. Loco & Jam are on fire, their Techno weapons are destroying the revellers on nights out, sending them wild to huge atmospheric tracks. And the Northern Irish natives are back with three new tracks, as well as two remixes, with the ‘Apocolyptic‘ EP.
Loco & Jam are no strangers to the big underground labels. They have released on the likes of Stereo Productions, Tronic, Relief Records, Terminal M and various others. Each of their sounds which you hear are heavily supported by the major names in the underground dance scene. They just seem to be continuing to grow. And with their latest EP, they make their Suara Music debut, dropping the ‘Apocolyptic’ EP with remixes from Oliver Deutschmann and Oliver Giacomotto.
The first track on the EP comes as ‘Tell Me Why‘ and this is one which is all about the thumping beat, the huge bass line and the atmosphere which surrounds the track. The way in which the synths have been incorporated into the backdrop of the track, before taking over the with the huge melodies is phenomenal. This is one with plenty of energy, as the builds lead up to something special. And when it drops, you can imagine what the crowd will be like.
Following on from this is the second track, the title track, ‘Apocolyptic‘. This is more focused on the progressive energy, the way in which the melody flits through the track and progresses. Fusing this style in with the highs and lows, the deep flowing bass line and the synths, it all seems to provide something with that extra edge, that extra darkness and deep feeling. Another track which will go down very well. Oliver Giacomotto steps up to remix ‘Apocolyptic’ and he adds a more House like sound to the track, adding to the deep bass line with some sweet atmospheric synths, a perfect combination.
The last track to arrive on the EP is ‘After The Storm‘ and this is a track which holds raw, electronic power behind it. With the solid beat keeping the track ticking over, the melody begins to come through as the track progresses with the brilliant vocal sample. Adding in the intricate layers into the backdrop, the electronic sounds come through as it begins to build, and the power which this track holds is phenomenal. You will fall in love with this one from the start. Oliver Deutschmann remixes this one, and he adds in elements such as the drums, and a new vocal, to add his own style and sound to the track.
