Spanish DJs and producers Pig & Dan released their début album on Cocoon in 2007 and have had a hectic schedule ever since, releasing their material on labels from Yoshitoshi Recordings (based in Washinton D.C.), Cocoon Recordings, Boxer and their own recognised imprints Submission and Tecmission. Tracks such as Terminate and 'Sly Detector have propelled them to worldwide success, and not to mention numerous remixes.
English born, and now living in Germany, Mark Reeve first began as a club DJ at the tender age of sixteen and hasnt looked back since. The releases of his two albums have pushed towards his success with his most important material also through cult label Cocoon Recordings. He brings the sound of London and Germany together to produce his own style of darker shades of House.
Origami is the opening track on their début Soma EP. Driving drums and a loose bassline combine perfectly in a track that captivates throughout. This is a no-nonsense A-side for sure.
'Born Naked' is an irresistible House track that steps in with a thick slice of bassline funk. Combine this with a classic arpeggiator sound and tight rolling percussion and you have something that will bring a deeper and groovier feel coming through the track to the floor.
'Expand' really is a different kettle of fish altogether. Sonically it sits in the murky and rumbling world of the subs, but does so in a manner that suits the atmospheres of the track perfectly.
'Beneath The Meadows' is an afterparty special. Restrained yet slightly surreal and dreamlike the track twists and turns through bell-like hits and percussive shifts.
An ear-pricking collaboration on their first Soma release.
