It’s always a special feeling when you stumble across a track by a relative newcomer to the scene, especially when the track in question is a deep house masterpiece. The track in question is by Rome-based producer Kocleo, picked up by Definitive Recordings mainstay Oliver Giacomotto, who also features on remix duties.
Need Your Love features everything you’d want from a deep house anthem. The bass is simple but defines the entire track–it’s soulful, powerful, and extremely catchy. The key is simplicity–the vocal sample provides another subtle yet catchy hook, synth lines play along with the bass, the percussion, slightly techy at times, grooves along with the bass rather than simply playing next to it. Need Your Love is one of those special deep house tracks which is as much “sunset in a classy bar” as it is “dark sweaty club at 4 a.m.”–a rare but very satisfying combination. The b-side features a remix from Giacomotto himself, giving the track a rougher tech house edge.
Kocleo may be relatively unknown at the moment, but Need Your Love should change that. Grab it now via Beatport and spread the word.
