(Firepower Records)
Release Date: Out now (iTunes / Beatport)

As Datsik and his Firepower Records crew blaze across America on their mammoth tour, their mission to champion a new wave of young talent is continuing apace. For the next EP on the label the floor is being opened up to 18 year-old Baltimore-based heavy hitter Rekoil. Set for release on 23rd October, ‘Reloaded’ is certain to put the young producer on the map. Jumpstarting the EP is wrecking ball opener ‘4-matic’ that sets the scene with its haunting intro before Rekoil unleashes a volley of industrial-strength bass that is enough to knock you off your feet. Quickly taking a left turn, ‘Pretzel Twista’ reveals a warmer side to Rekoil’s production as 8-bit melodies intertwine with processed piano chords only to break down into a heavy glitched-out swing, exploring a unique style that demonstrate’s Rekoil’s attention to detail and on-point production. On ‘One Last Time’ the young producer teams up with Symbiotic on production duties and Maksim on the mic to deliver an uncompromising techy monster rammed with whipcrack snares and heavy bass drops. Continuing to pack the heat, ‘Fat Tub Of Goo’ switches things up with a fresh combination of murky atmospheres and warping bass, while Rekoil buddies up with Firepower releasee Barron on ‘Doomsday’, a track that carries all the power that its name suggests. The epic intro rolls in on the bombast of its militaristic drums and expansive horns before giving way to a punishing onslaught of maniacal bass and cavernous drums. Concluding the EP without taking his foot off the pedal, Rekoil’s remix of Devour – ‘Pistol Grip’ ups the tempo, taking the cornerstones of his sound and rewiring them around the switching rhythms. Over the past 2 years the young beatmaker has gained support from the likes of Datsik, Downlink, Ajapai, Liquid Stranger, Excision, and many more. With the release of ‘Reloaded’, Rekoil delivers a cohesive collection of undeniable dance floor fillers that tap into a variety of styles and genres. With a firm nod from dubstep lynchpin Datsik, Rekoil has come into his own with ‘Reloaded’s’ vicious composure and many welcome surprises.

Rekoil is a hard-hitter based out of Baltimore, Maryland (US). From his unrelenting basslines to his pounding drums, you immediately know that this kid is not one to be taken lightly. When he was just 17 years old, Rekoil had gained exposure with support from the likes of Datsik, Downlink, Ajapai, Liquid Stranger, Excision, and more. With a full spectrum of sound, you’ll hear everything from bone-chilling dubstep, head-banging moombahcore, and groovy mid-tempo to face-eating drumstep bangers like you’ve never heard before. At just over 2 years in the scene, it’s not hard to see that REKOIL is out to dominate dance floors worldwide!
