DJ Koze might be one of the worlds best producers, but above all hes a DJ, and it’s his DJ ear that governs. Just as in a great set, so with his releases: Seeing Aliens came out of nowhere, a big buzzing beast of a track, to announce that Koze was back on the scene and prime everyone for the coming album, knock knock. But now that Koze has your attention, it’s time to remind everyone what’s most important about club music, pull things back, take a turn to the left, and get deep into the groove. Thus Pick Up: the second single from knock knock is 100% pure groove, doubly so in the extended 12inch version. In a sense its incredibly familiar it is essentially a filter disco record, very close to something you could imagine coming out of Paris around the turn of the millennium. But of course, this is Koze. Nothing is normal or familiar in his world, and hes taken this most foundational of clubland staples into new territory

Sales Information:

DJ Koze might be one of the world's best producers, but above all he's a DJ, and it's his DJ ear that governs.

Just as in a great set, so with his releases: “Seeing Aliens” came out of nowhere, a big buzzing beast of a track,

to announce that Koze was back on the scene and prime everyone for the coming album, knock knock.

But now that Koze has your attention, it's time to remind everyone what's most important about club music,

pull things back, take a turn to the left, and get deep into the groove.



Thus “Pick Up”: the second single from knock knock is 100% pure groove, doubly so in the extended 12” version.

In a sense it's incredibly familiar – it is essentially a filter disco record, very close to something you could imagine

coming out of Paris around the turn of the millennium. But of course, this is Koze. Nothing is normal or familiar

in his world, and he's taken this most foundational of clubland staples into new territory. Flipping samples of

Gladys Knight & the Pips “Neither One Of Us (Wants to Be the First to Say Goodbye)” and Melba Moore’s

“Pick Me Up, I’ll Dance“, it creates something completely airborne, shot through with emotions such as gods

must feel: not quite explicable to the human mind but strong enough to knock you off your feet. In its way it's

absolutely as powerful as “Seeing Aliens”, but it comes in like the proverbial iron fist in a glove of velvet.



The flip, a ten-minute new track, “The Love Truck” is a big contrast again. If “Pick Up” is giddy flight,

“The Love Truck” is woozy floating. Its sharp, clicking percussion recalls 2000s minimal techno, but this

time absolutely nothing is generic. The long, intense, on-and-off bass tones, the flickers of birdsong,

the pure voices slipping in backwards as if from the future... it's all like the most blissful dream, and

culminates in a coda so subtle yet so beautiful it's like ever time you've ever seen the sun rise and thought

“I never want this to end”, all the while understanding deep down that the fleeting nature of the pleasure is

also what give it its power. But of course, being created with that consummate DJ's ear, it's also full of the

thrill of wondering what Koze has in store next. [txt from ]
