DJ Koze - 'Knock Knock'

9/10

Over the years, German producer DJ Koze has skirted the line between the commercial and the experimental. Taking the core, major-key sounds of the pop world and glitching them up into something new has always been his state of mind. But since returning after a five year silence with some EPs in the last few months, the irreverent individual now delivers his long-awaited third full-length 'Knock Knock', a record that shows exactly why his presence is so sorely needed today.

From the start, this new album sets its claim as a bold and interesting piece of work. The opener 'Club Der Ewigkeiten', with its pulsing strings and Avalanches-style vibe, sets the tone as to where this new material plans to go. From then on, we are treated to a smooth and vibrant release that feels perfectly timed for the summer sun. Teaming up with a number of other compatible names like Jose Gonzalez and Roisin Murphy only adds to the warming nature of this record and delivers a truly memorable experience.

He may have been gone for a while, but DJ Koze has certainly not lost his touch when it comes to creating incredibly engaging music. A triumphant return that once again reinstates him as one of the most essential artists in the world.
