Every now & again we come across an artist & music that makes us stop & take a second look. In this case, a second listen. I recently had this happen with an artist I’m presenting to you today, Cool Customer. The music in particular? His double-sided EP, titled ‘Take ‘Em Back / The Walled Garden‘. Despite just debuting, Cool Customer has already garnered support from bass music heavyweights such as Subtronics, PEEKABOO, and even LSDream. Now you can find out why. If you’re a fan of bass music, you’re going to love this one.
The first track, ‘Take ‘Em Back’ features a nice drum groove that sounds organic as if it was recorded live. A lot of drums in dance music don’t sound this way, so this was honestly a breath of fresh air. It also features a pretty awesome bass-line, which is sure to get you bobbing & weaving.
‘The Walled Garden‘ on other hand sounds almost nothing like Take ‘Em Back’. Garden sounds like the soundtrack from some alien world sprinkled with playful arpeggios, and pleasant motifs. Its neat. Having said that, I highly recommend checking out Take ‘Em Back / The Walled Garden‘ for yourself, just to see what the hype is all about. You won’t be disappointed.
With a total playtime of 6:26, this is an EP that’s just long enough to get you grooving. If you’re a fan of melodic and experimental bass music, then ‘Take ‘Em Back / The Walled Garden‘ is for you. With that being said, if you might want to listen back a few more times, just to take it all in. Cool Customer’s debut double-sided EP ‘Take ‘Em Back / The Walled Garden‘ is out now, and can be streamed below, enjoy!
