If Surrender! isn’t on your radar by now then you need to jump on board immediately. Formerly known as Opptimo, this 23 year old Turkish producer has seized our attention with fantastic and long lasting productions like Locate and Conflicted (I end up singing the lyrics from George Michael’s Last Christmas to this every time, dont’ know why but someone make a mash of this for me please).
Never a lull in his performance, his latest double single extended play is a must-have. Volute is quite a futuristic journey through robotic arpeggiators, mean bass lines, and epic piano chords. But while the title track got our feet moving and our hips loose, the majority of my attention is reserved for the B-side.
Fast Days is amazing. The piano intro is just incredible, softly walking you to the edge of the plank before drop-kicking you right into the thick of the track. Phenomenal big room energy and an outstanding performance by this young producer. After previewing below, run over to Beatport to purchase this via La Bombe.
