This is what I love to see and hear. Progress. In a convo that I had w/ Kenny Dope early this year, we talked about the fact that as much as he was well known and regarded for house, he still had history and love for hip hop - something that not too many cats ever talked about. Only OGs. In fact, rare are the ones who have actually been praised for both (Spinna comes to mind).
So when I heard this little up tempo banger from Koen, I just pushed out a sigh of both relief and rapture. Coming from a marked past of predominantly hip hop production, the Dutch Koen has leaked a quasi house/808 2 steppy riddim 986 that I'm playing for the nth time as we speak. I'm really looking fwd to this Outputs release. Like I mentioned in past, I got hip to Koen somewhere in 08 and have been a fan since. This only anchors my interest in his work as you should book mark this as well.
Outputs will be out March 27th courtesy of Soulection.
