Between the affirmative noise alongside Fedde Le Grand’s Flamingo Recordings imprint and his impending appearance at this year’s Mysteryland festival, German fast-riser Deniz Koyu has remained a valiantly poised contender amid the European cohorts. But following a sneak preview courtesy of FLG’s popular radio show and support from both Axwell and Sebastian Ingrosso, the young producer takes the reins for Refune Records with the highly anticipated ‘Bong’.
While Koyu’s blend of European big room is aptly energised throughout, the stamina to which his well ornamented leads and sturdy beat works play-out reigns highly above the majority of his hopeful new school peers. Despite the significant quality that Refune’s fresh-faced entourage of talents have mustered throughout 2012, the familiar yet fertile ‘Bong’ sets straight the notion that Koyu remains a formative and fresh leader on the European circuit.
‘Bong’ is released on June 8.
