DJOKO - Ventura - SNF055 - Shall Not Fade
A1: Morning Wonders
A2: Morning Wonders (Leo Pol Remix)
B2: Sylvestre Alone
Ventura EP is an exhibition of DJOKO's skill, tight and groovy house cuts that beg to be played all summer. Kicking off with a hazy gentle burner in "Morning Wonders", he serves up laid-back pads glittering with a funky dance pop organ - a summer track that is flipped and darkened in Leo Pol's remix, adding a firmer rhythm and growling sub bass; the night-time's answer to this day party number. The title track exemplifies DJOKO's fresh take on house music, carefully blending retro samples - crooning disco vocals and organic bass - with a soaring futuristic sound palette into a sublime high-class groove. Pumping B2 "Sylvestre Alone" is a percussive, emotive roller, its tight infectious riffs unavoidably pushing you to dance.
