It’s time again for us to welcome another first timer to the Second State roster: Rocko Garoni. Having been label manager of Sisyphon, in-house imprint of the acclaimed Sisyphos Club in Berlin, Garoni is no stranger to curating high quality records, and this time he gets to be curator of his own stunning ‘Detection’ EP.
Jumping in head first, ‘Detection’, mischievous number that is equal parts vicious and cunning as it is sensual and inviting. Provocative female whispers float over a beat sure to slay any crowd, any time. Switching gears, Garoni heads into houser territories on ‘Phaseful’, where glimmers of classic House artifacts are scattered like flickering shimmers over an energetic drum illustration. Coming up next is ‘Tragedy’. It’s low slung drums, vast spanning bass and sinister vocal declarations make it an ideal ambassador for the dark mysterious nights. Wrapping up the EP is a huge rework of 'Detection' by Regal, who churns out a burner by cranking up the tempo and tension with crisp drums and an undeniable classic rave leads sure to make the forefathers of Techno proud. If it keeps up like this, we expect much more big things in the future from Rocko Garoni!
