Without a doubt the duo known as Dole & Kom have been an influential staple in Berlin’s music scene for long. As a DJ-team they’re looking back on a two decades plus history, they’ve been active on the label circuit with imprints like BCC Music and Death By Disco since the mid-90s, have released tracks and remixes under their main and many covert aliases on countless imprints ever since and most importantly – they’re about to drop their new ‘Pocket Holder’ EP on Formatik Records these days.
With ‘Mirror’ we see the Berlin-based pair of producers bring on some highly defined, yet well grooving tech house vibes for vibrant floors, getting everyone hyped through the distinctiveness of the tunes bass motif which is nicely contrasted by buzzing high frequencies and a massive Rave breakdown ready to destroy dancefloors with the sheer power of its blasting signals.
The title track ‘Pocket Holder’ sees Dole & Kom emphasizing on their sexy bass grooves again which are somewhat of a trademark for their production efforts, adding some slightly twisted, tongue-in-cheek elements, ever climaxing siren sounds and a slightly pitched down male vocal line that defo stands out in the context of every DJ set whilst the tune itself balances the thin line between tech- and electrohouse… and a good portion of high octane madness as well.
Finally ‘Smoke’ caters more sub-frequent sexiness and a certain swing within the tech house genre whilst warped bass tones and video game-resembling bleeps provide a bouncing foundation for micro-cut, ever climaxing vocal bits to get punters pumped for a spiralling journey into electronic music heavens.
