Eekkoo unleashes smoldering, weapons-grade menace with ‘Bangalore’
Eekkoo‘s reputation for masterfully crafted techno spans just about every mood. Whether unleashing moody peak hour burners on Jeremy Olander‘s Vivrant imprint, or gracing mau5trap with brooding stompers like 2014’s “Elysium,” the producer has built a foundation of quality that allows him to infiltrate European warehouses and unsuspecting Spotify playlists with equal aplomb. Now, the Montreal-based maestro is back with a fresh dose of club-ready fire on a new self-released single titled “Bangalore.”
Front the jump, it’s clear the track means business as analog arps and growling bass bursts flank a massive break beat. Washing into an interlude steeped in mystery, the drums return to demolish dance floors as strings and echoing vocals drive the record forward.
Eekkoo is currently on tour in India spreading his deliciously dark gospel overseas and named “Bangalore” after a South Asian city of the same name. It’s safe to say the producer’s arsenal has gained another weapon with his latest offering.
