Turbo presents the latest in its stable of new techno artists with a powerful EP from Belgium’s Locked Groove.
Hot off a much-hyped release for Scuba’s Hotflush imprint, Locked Groove returns with three amazing tracks that showcase the growing influence of bass music on the traditional spheres of Berghain techno and Chicago house. Masterfully recreating the core elements of these established genres while infusing them with massive doses of energy and personality, this 23-year-old producer creates no-nonsense, big-room club tracks with memorable – albeit almost subliminal – hooks.
It seems hard to believe that Locked Groove only appeared on the scene in early 2011, with an output that has already garnered an impressive share of accolades, landing him on Groove Magazine’s Top 10 Singles, Scuba’s recent DJ Kicks mix-CD, and charts from artists as varied as Ripperton, Brodinski, and Peter Van Hoesen. And now, most importantly, he joins Turbo’s blindingly promising roster of young techno artists.
