Tom Pooks is the boss of Family Pinik Musik, a label that is now 10 years old. His biggest tune to date, ‘Jocker’ (initially released by Carl Cox) is also ten years old. As such it gets a couple of new remixes that bring it right back to the foreground this summer.
Up first, Pooks links with Joy Kitikonti for a ducking and diving techno tune with rolling, looping bass and squelchy synths that will turn you inside out. The Cosmic Boys version is more for the peak time, with shuffling drums and hard hitting hits all run through by turbulent synths that electrify the groove and take you to the heavens. Essential stuff.
