HYYKEN returns to Fresh Take with his ‘Forever’ EP
Straight from his release on Monki’s &Friends label, rising Irish DJ and producer HYYKEN returns to Fresh Take one year on from his last project.
Another promising talent to emerge from the Emerald Isle, HYYKEN has been making waves beyond his Irish hometown of Dundlak recently. With original cuts that take inspiration from Justice, Robert Hood, Daft Punk, The Prodigy and Skream, whilst fusing rolling basslines and crispy percussion, HYYKEN has moulded a sound uniquely his own.
The past 18 months, in particular, have proved pivotal for HYYKEN, with tracks like his edit of ‘Love Lockdown, Ghetto Siren’ and ‘Profyle & Poze’ building huge hype and noise around the rising producer.
More recently he’s also found fans in Patrick Topping, Elliot Adamson and Jamie Jones with his ‘Flatbush Ave’ EP via Scottish imprint Fresh Take Records and ‘Miss Hunnay’ on local label Reboot Records, sampling drag royalty Moi Renee.
Now on the path as one of the industry’s ones to watch for 2021. With his ‘Forever’ EP it’s no mucking about on this time around – straight house hitters and techno thumpers as he returns to Fresh Take Records.
We premiere ‘Pidgeon’ from the EP today on Data Transmission, check it out here and grab it on Bandcamp.
