Having made his mark in recent years in both techno and post-punk scenes with releases on Regis's Downwards as one half of DVA Damas and on Berlin techno institution Frozen Border, L.A. artist Joe Cocherell debuts his freshly levelled new project, Bone Head.
Soft Power is the debut release of a new sound and style for Joe, one that musically is influenced by import 12"s and YouTube rips of grime, early 00's dubstep, and drum & bass, but mutates them into his own unique sound and style. Opener 'Busy Body' comes to life with a sequencer smashing arrangement of gyroscopic drums and clipped vocal hooks that instantly start to morph into a tightly wound metallic beat reminiscent of his poptones techno, before recoiling in angst at the sharply let loose 'F*ck You Up!' refrain, Eski grime left to melt in the L.A. heat. 'Virtua' follows with a properly heavy mix of percussion that flexes a sound that could be Blawan scoring Terminator. 'Soft Power' on the flip then fires in a few rounds with a delicate, yet unforgiving mix of future-bound DNB noir, shot through with Joe's impeccable sound design and a seriously strong musical knowledge of all things hardcore. Soft Power ends with the magnetic pulse of 'Peace Keeper', splitting atoms of trap and Natural Born Killa style Photek with all the intensity and fierceness of the very best sides from Zuli, Rabit or Dark0. Proper head melting 12" from this one to watch producer...
