Germany’s Exploited label returns with yet another powerful release, this time from young Munich-based duo, Cocolores. The label has been hitting us with back to back 5-star EPs that usually end up topping the charts a month later (Claptone’s “Cream” & “Good To You” and Adana Twins’ “Everyday” & “Strange” both reached the top on Beatport) so it is obviously exciting to see a new one show up. Labeled as “the return of Nouveau Bavaria”, Cocolores is Jason Heath and Manuel Garay – two youngsters from Munich who produce a unique blend of 90ies house with a delictable tinge of urban funkiness. With their debutrelease “Heart Quest” (which will see remixes by Deetron & Trickski soon) they have conquered the hearts of many DJs and beautiful girls&boys. They currently remixed Mercury for Gomma and Eli Escobar for Plant and their 3rd EP for Exploited is already in the making. For now check out the follow-up “Vox” by these 2 gentlemen.
“Cocolores’ video screams with techno imagery, as many of its black-and-white scenes take place in desolate urban spaces—like empty plazas and subway stations. It all complements the midtempo thrust and FM saxophone stabs of “Vox,” an anxious document of German deep house that will be available on April 2.”

Los Angeles-based Urulu fuses inner-city influences with worldly sounds. His production is demonstrative of his light-hearted attitude and an admiration for cultural electronic music.
From his production to his DJ-sets, the West-Coast sultry vibe that Urulus music brings is infectious.
Urulu is a compulsive music collector/business scholar who likes romance novels, Anthony Bourdain, Korean tea and exceptional Mexican food. Guilty pleasures include C-list dating shows, free plugins, and ‘lo-fi’ R&B.
Growing up amongst a somewhat “unconventional” musical background in his parental influences than most uber-cool house producers these days would admit (Mom being a soft rock fan and Dad blaring out the WWE theme tunes), Urulu (the cloaked pseudonym for LA based Taylor Freels) somehow happened upon kindred spirits offering a sound alien to his own influences in the form of electronic music producers, an insatiable fascination from an early age which he confesses still holds the same childlike allure and intrigue now as it did back then. Utilizing a combination of cerebral, haunting vocal samples, which are the product of endless hours of late-night YouTube digging, and infusing luscious deep chords and low-slung basslines, Urulu strikes the balance between post-modern dancemusic and soulful 90s house.
With evocative and emotive productions showcasing a stripped back, classic feel, Urulu’s sounds are a throwback to the lost generation of smoother groove-makers.
Check out his hotly-anticipated debut EP on Exploited: “Across The Sky”.
