US - Fool's Gold
We don’t know who’s been spiking the San Pellegrino but we hope they never, ever stop, because Italy has been producing a slew of interesting new electronic producers as of late. The latest and greatest of these rave exports is Rocco Rampino, better known to partygoers around the globe as Congorock, and Fool’s Gold is proud to introduce his bleeped-out, bass-heavy brand of club sonics to the world at large.
Congorock’s debut single “Runark” is a buzzing four-and-a-half minutes of heart-attack breakbeats, ghetto house thump, and Sega Genesis synthesizer madness. The chunky anthem serves as a perfect calling card for this young producer, who in the space of a few months went from drumming in a hardcore band, to chopping up beats with his mentor Bob Rifo of the Bloody Beetroots, to producing hyperactive remixes for the likes of Rex The Dog and Boys Noize Records’ DJ Edotronic while touring the globe off the strength of his sweaty and imaginative DJ sets.
“Runark” comes backed with an awesomely proggy remix by FG labelmates Jokers Of The Scene, as well as the jacking Congorock originals “Exodus” and “Hybro,” all wrapped up in psychomystical sleeve art from Dust La Rock. The digital release also features an exclusive new “Runark” mix by His Majesty Andre (Cheap Thrills). More new Congorockers coming soon, so stay tuned…
