Powder - Powder In Space 12”
Since her debut release on Born Free Records, 2015’s Spray, Powder’s sound has flirted with numerous unconventional dance institutions and outlets, releasing on ESP Institute, Wichelroede and the Cocktail D’amore imprint, as well as regularly contributing to the latter’s illustrious mega parties. For her Powder in Space mix, Moko presents two new songs that were created within a new schedule, with summers spent touring Europe and North America, welcoming the unique experiences offered by each location.
“New Tribe” toasts the global community Powder’s connected during her travels. Marching-band snares, breathy ostinatos, motivating chords, springy auxiliary percussion and bouncy melodic details - all Powder trademarks, coalescing into one of her most celebratory offerings yet. “Gift” is a subtler jam, shuffling and twinkling in perfect balance. Reminiscent of “Spray,” it sustains a retrofuturistic groove that defies the house / techno categorical binary.
On the the EP, Powder’s two new originals sit alongside Daphne’s “When You Love Someone (Groove Instrumental),” a sultry, twirling vibraphone deep house number from 1993; and the first ever release of Samo DJ and Hidden Operator’s atmospheric scene setter, “Захват Сзади Rox.”
