You already know how much we love this dude having released an EP on our label not so long ago. Now he has released his new EP on his own Yo Sucka! imprint and imho it’s his finest work thus far. I’ve been blasting it non-stop since I had it a few months back. It’s more future bass & garage influenced than his usual Moombahton output but it also contains some Detroit inspired Moombah!
It is a blistering release proving yet again that he occupies a league of his own. We also firmly believe what the PR says that OktoRed will be the next big Detroit name.
We cannot recommend this EP enough, it is an absolute ESSENTIAL!
“Cry” is unbelievable!!!!
Have a listen to this beauty:
Here’s the Press Release:
Here we go with another deep release by Detroit’s very own OktoRed. ‘Golden Zinc EP’ is the release we’ve been waiting for and the buzz on the streets is already really strong, with early support from the great Anthony “Shake” Shakir.
‘Golden Zinc EP’ has a vast array of production styles from this talented new producer spanning deep Techno, through next-level Detroit inspired Moombahton, to Future Bass and Garage.
As YoSucka’s Brian “Starski” Gillespie (Databass / Juke Trax / Twilight 76) states:
“OktoRed is changing the game, with some next level production for those who know… GET IT! The rest will follow. I’ve been releasing records since 1993. Ron Murphy and Mike Banks (UR) once told me that I’m blessed with a golden ear and I truly believe that OktoRed will be the next big Detroit name.”
The EP kicks off with a serious ‘Bang’, before the future funk of ‘Cry’, followed by the underwater arcade bong ride of ‘Heads Up’ and into the moves of ‘As you Chew’, like the early days of Detroit Techno with lush keys and a slow groove. Next, ‘Push’ on with a surreal swing where Garage and Future Bass combine, before ‘2,4,6,8’ takes you on a journey into SiFi fantasy lands, culminating in the spasmodic tones of ‘The Two’.
Take your time and listen to ‘Golden Zinc’ LOUD, whether it’s in your car, your studio, the office, or the Club.
Long live the Detroit underground!
