A New Fella

Posted on the 03 May 2011 by Pelski
A New FellaHome to all things techno, Berlin is hardly a city associated with 2-step and underground garage sounds. That said, Scuba and a few others have been blurring the boundaries between housier beats and the futuristic dubstep template for some time now. And Sub:stance, based in the German capital, has brought the likes of D-bridge, Mala and Kode 9 to the high-brow techno temple that is Berghain.
Well, the budding 22 yeard old producer KoolFella (who sent me over a couple of demos a few weeks ago) isn't on quite the same deep techy tip as those 2-step-meets-techno pioneers. But he's certainly got a similar idea in mind, but with a cheekier, cheesier take on bringing the two genres together.
'Poise' is a straight-up garage jam, but the beats come with a heavy-hitting weight suited to peak-time floors. The whole thing's wrapped around a delicious Mary J Blige sample:

'Itom' flirts even more with thudding techno beats, incorporating some echoing, warehouse acid synths, whilst the snares skip and skid along with the snappy fervour of old school 2-step. Great stuff:

Keep your eye on this fella...
