OC & Verde are well-versed in the realm of quality dance records — so much so, that Pete Tong crowned them “Ones to Watch” a year after their break in 2016, and “New Names” for the year of 2018. The duo have earned renown for their scintillating brand of techno, and have since earned accolades from the likes of Joseph Capriati, Tale Of Us, Maceo Plex, and more. Not to mention, they also received the high honor from John Digweed in remixing his iconing Bedrock single, “Heaven Scent.”
They’re back on their production grind in 2019 now with a brand new two-tracker on Matador’s RUKUS, “Korowai.” We recently got hold of the A-side, and it’s indeed quite the sizzler. Immediately, listeners can tell it’s a serious production by way of its powerful, stuttered bassline and peppered-in percussion. They lock and load the track in with a bittersweet analog riff, before smacking listeners with their usual huge climax that is built to blow up even the largest setting. OC & Verde have always been experts at forging weapons, and “Korowai” is no different.
