After kickstarting 2018 with hit tune ‘Gotta Get Away’, legendary Dutch duo Chocolate Puma now teams up with fellow Dutch artist Wiwek for the club heavy two-track EP ‘Get Out Of The Way / Wan Tu’.
Expect a blast of raw house music, already supported by several tastemakers, including Martin Garrix, Hardwell, Laidback Luke, Valentino Khan, Fedde Le Grand, Yellow Claw and many more.
Dutch powerhouse duo Chocolate Puma knows how to drop house music, they’ve almost invented the term as the guys started out producing music in the early 90s, delivering club hits under several artist names. Most famous are probably The Good Men and Jark Prongo –just check these names on the web and discover a collection of awesome oldskool house music!
As they helped shape the original house genre, the duo always kept on producing up-to-date tunes under the name Chocolate Puma. Recently, as oldskool house sounds have gained popularity again, this resulted in several big releases, including their 2016 hit single ‘Lullaby’ (feat. BISHØP), the Tommie Sunshine collab ’Scrub The Ground’, and collabs with Oliver Heldens, HI-LO, Laidback Luke, Sander van Doorn and, recently, their early 2018 hit single ‘Gotta Get Away’, a vintage vocal house tune that’s seen widespread DJ support.
Speaking of widespread support, rising Dutch DJ/producer Wiwek has been enjoying this more and more since his rise to the scene in 2012. He’s brought a distinctive style, where complex Indian-inspired rhythms collided with the adrenaline-rush dynamics of trap and tribal house.
Early Wiwek singles like ‘Angry Birdz’ and his Gregor Salto collaboration ‘On Your Mark’ didn’t sound like anything else being made at the time, but soon enough they began popping up in sets by A-list DJs. In short time he was playing the same stages as them, making his first festival appearance in 2015 at Ultra,
A Twitter DM to Skrillex, who Wiwek knew was regularly playing his tracks, turned into a relationship that’s helped take the young artist to a new level. In 2016 OWSLA released his EP ‘The Free and Rebellious’, which not only included a collaboration between the two (‘Killa’) but also served as the soundtrack to a short film called Still in the Cage that the pair co-produced, and premiered that August to a massive crowd at the Ace Hotel in Downtown LA.
The release was followed by a full EP in 2017, while his musical journey continued in 2018 by releasing his first compilation ‘The SAGA’ on the imprint BARONG Family. The SAGA collected some of Wiwek’s favourite tracks from the Jungle terror EP’s and added some new tunes.
And now, both acts team up for the two-track EP ‘Get Out Of The Way / Wan Tu’. Aiming straight for the dance floor. ‘Get Out Of The Way’ is a dark, twisted track, rolling and scratching its way towards a breakdown with ominous drums and claps. ‘Wan Tu’ goes even deeper, with maddening drum patterns, crazy percussion, weird sampling, and gritty bass sounds – experimental dance music but as cool as you can get it.
