Shonky :: Coco Feel :: Love Shonk

Berlin-based Olivier Ducreux releases his first EP for Contexterrior, following his highly regarded material for FreaK n’Chic, Crosstown Rebels, Mobilee and Sub Static. Shonky first made a name for himself as a DJ in Paris late last decade, and made his production debut in 2005 for FreaK n’Chic, with a slew of acclaimed releases, plus remix requests from the likes of Tiefschwarz and Anja Schneider. Now, following the release of his debut full-length album earlier this year, Shonky joins Contexterrior for three fresh tech-house productions. “Coco Feel and Love Shonk ” revolves around a naïve organ loop and strict grid-based percussion, while free-spirited sine waves dance and flutter about and gentle female vocals appear. DJs who secretly enjoy “Missing” by Everything But the Girl might want to check this one out. On the flip, the mechanical “Donkey Kong” will give you enough energy to climb ladders and brick walls all day long, and the bouncy closing track “Doctor Slump” will diagnose you with a severe case of Dance Mania.
