DA Premiere: Kokiri – Turn Back Time (Retrospect)
Liverpool newcomer Kokiri took a significant spotlight with “Turn Back Time,” a track in full-flow with the accessible house overhaul that has dominated electronic music over the past 12 months. Having made grand waves upon its original release via Love & Other, Ministry of Sound’s re-release comes with a full vocal remode of the key-laden house original.
Building on the infectious vocal lick that took precedent first time around, the track’s steady grooves and luscious piano licks come accompanied with extended vocal work, driving a soulful edge into club-ready original. From the label that has tapped Tchami and Mike Mago alike into its early 2015 activity, the retrospect cut points to a continued focus on house music with a commercial edge for the foreseeable future. As Kokiri prepares to debut on both Atlantic and The Magician’s Potion imprint over the coming months, “Turn Back Time” is as timely to the market as it is indicative of the calibre this UK newcomer is operating at.
