Socket Hog – Purple Dragon
Socket Hog’s – Purple Dragon album is a blend of tech house, deep house, electronica, melodic house and techno.
Straight off the back of his releases on Hydrogen Inc, Rough Cut Records (Sub Label of Touche) in Amsterdam, and Bakroom.
“Purple Dragon” is a ten-track album that took 2 years and 3 collaborations to complete. Some of the highlights on the album include “Dats Bass Music” with regular collaborator and friend Jamez (Touche /Rough Cut Records). “The Drums” is another track that captures a marching hypnotic groove, drenched with analog synths washed over a sinewave style bass, a tech-tribal type groove and slow ever evolving pads that add wondruos texture and fill the track out to perfection.
The title track off the album “Purple Dragon” is a stripped down chicago/detroit house inspired cut, harking to the sound of some of Socket Hog’s favorite techno & house labels like Metroplex, Plastic City and I records. Other highlights include his collaboration with Nicolas Gaugain of French production duo G-Prod aka Oud!n13 – “Camarada” has smooth melodic tones, some occasional white noise, tough direct drum programming and precisely programmed synths intricately weave through complex chord progressions, building to a melodious breakdown, before subtly rebuilding all elements.
All tracks are available for licensing via 23rd Precinct
