Where anonymous Texan Electro head Mr Wonk has already proven a promising speck on the map courtesy of remixes for the likes of Deadmau5, his debut collaborative single alongside Cologne’s Sharam Jey would always prove a crucial card for the promising producer. But having already remixed the master of Kong Kling Records, their collaborative debut excels in energy while lacking in originality.
With subtle undertones of earlier Mord Fustang seeping through ‘Neon’, its crunchy backbone solid lead play still make for an impressive collection of studio talents. As much as the sense of familiarity pervades throughout, the tracks solid production values and intense energy cannot be argued with and this American/European ensemble certainly impress with this first joint instalment.
