Rob Cockerton returns to the Abode Records with a new original EP, ‘Design Your Life’, which features two solo tracks and a remix from Leftwing & Kody.
After helping launch the label in 2016 with the killer track ‘Hope’ he’s back with this new absolute banger of an EP and first up is ‘Groove To the Beat’ is a fast-paced opener, channelling Rob’s characteristic sense of movement with a catchy bass melody and an attention-grabbing eponymous vocal sample. Meanwhile ’Here We Go’ is led by rattling percussion and ascending keys over a similarly thumping bassline. The ever-popular Leftwing & Kody’s take on the record switches it up for peak-time dancefloors, with a dramatic breakdown leading to a horn-filled bass drop.
The ‘Design Your Life’ EP is a great example of Rob’s dancefloor-ready production style, it’s clear that the producer and DJ – whose career now spans over 28 years – is as confident as ever.
