Review: Kotelett & Zadak – ‘Moonside’ EP (Hive Audio)

Kotelett & Zadak - Moonshine EP Hive Audio


Fun-filled electronic music has long been Hive Audio’s modus operandi, and their latest recruits Kotelett & Zadak are most definitely proponents of a likeminded sound. Making their label debut with this EP, the Berlin-based duo give absolutely nothing away about themselves on their biography. Regardless, this is probably a good thing, as lazy clichés aside, they let the music do the talking.

In spite of the fact that there are only two tracks on offer, the lads use every last ounce to leave us yearning for more on “Moonside of the Deep” and “Nele.” The former is a bassline soaked anthem and the kind of track that leaves you waiting for the drop in a big and pleasant way. “Nele” traverses through a more rugged and straight-up road, as it engulfs the listener in a unique glare that won’t go unnoticed wherever it’s allowed to stretch out and run riot.
