Premiere: HOKI – The Push
HOKI seemed to appear out of nowhere. The newly minted, relatively enigmatic duo comprised of Varti Deuchoghlian and Brent McCormick clearly had their proverbial ducks in a row when getting their start, utilizing connections gained from their respective musical pasts and coming out the gate with strong remixers in Clarian, Matthias Meyer, and Facundo Mohrr. Their team, network, and knack for melodic house production in place, they soon announced that the run of singles they’ve been releasing would become an album—an intriguing way to make an entrance, indeed.
The latest single from the upcoming LP comes in the form of ‘The Push.’ Per their established aesthetic, the track is a euphoric track assisted by McCormick’s vocal touch. Its thick bassline, sweeping strings lacing the background, and twinkling synth melodies are universally appealing, and primed to do well on the dancefloor. Given their large support system in the melodic house arena, which includes Lee Burridge and the aforementioned remixers among it, we’re sure this one will be rinsed plenty in the coming months.
