Portuguese label Kokölò returns as Rave Child delivers his ‘The Calling’ EP, backed by a remix from .VRIL.
Founded last year, Portuguese label Kokölò made an immediate impact with its debut release from anonymous artist and label founder Rave Child, gaining support from the likes of Laurent Garnier, Sasha, .Vril, Patrice Baumel and Nathan Micay. Up next, the label turned to another member of its collective as label event programmer Alfonsvs made his first outing on the imprint, with his "Bad Habits EP", backed by a remix by the Berghain resident Answer Code Request, gaining more international attention, with Inverted Audio, MNMT and Delayed, all writing about the release.
On this new EP, the opener and title track ‘The Calling’ is a hopeful-sounding techno trip, combining a 303-infused bassline and otherworldly pad sounds. Next, .VRIL's remix brings the artist's signature touch of loopy distorted textures, letting Rave Child's pad shine with class. The B-side of the record starts with "Good Vibrations", a distorted Shed-like burner made for peak time hours, sampling Loleatta Holloway with a modern touch. The record wraps up with "812", a 135 bpm deep burner, melting down distorted drums and rhythmic stabs with two melancholic piano notes.
The EP, mastered by Conor Dalton at Calyx Mastering Studios, features artwork from young illustrator David Duarte - with the design showing maturity in this new step for the label: their first vinyl release.
Rave Child ‘The Calling’ drops via Kokölò on the 28th of April 2023.
