Poko Poko | Petrichor EP
Tomorrow Is Now, Kid! are never shy to support exciting new talent, and so it goes on this sublime 12" from breakout producer Poko Poko. The "Petrichor EP" kicks off in bouncy fashion with the sweet and lilting "Hurdy Gurdy" before shifting stance to the sweet boogie inflections of "Iglozub". "Stipperflip" presents a more dusty, rattling strain of deep house that positively quivers with hand-crafted energy, and the title track completes the set with a seriously funky, soul-soaked get down packing one of the coolest basslines we've heard all year.
Are you ready for fresh blood?! Some time ago, Tomorrow Is Now Kid! head honcho Alex Salvador and Jelle Meeuwsen aka "Pokopoko" met while spinning records and talking music at a party in Tilburg, The Netherlands. A big stack of demos got sent over to the TINK! headquarters and eventually a debut EP named "Petrichor" was created. A powerful four-tracker with a dusty and melancholic take on today's House music. It's raw and funky but changes vibes throughout, keeping it fresh. That said, "Petrichor EP" is an emotional rollercoaster and a tribute to the ever-changing and unpredictable Dutch weather.
