We received an e-mail from Daniel Gorton a.k.a. Hog, an English producer who is currently living in Berlin to concentrate on music production (and to grow a moustache). He recently started up his own label called Crazy Old Goose Records and this is how he describes the label: “[It] is about bringing fun to the dance floor and exploring exciting ways to develop a cheeky take on the house and techno scene.” Now COG has released his first EP called “Not quite an albatross”. From the title you immediately feel how COG looks at the world, not all too seriously, with a big fat wink! That’s exactly what I like about this label because there are too many labels these days that think they can just start something up and get big. Well, dream on, it’s better to start something out of love for the music and apply a “wait and see” approach.

“If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears.”(Henry David Thoreau)

Ok, so COG001 then. The EP features 3 tracks, besides the original also an exclusive remix by Parisian producer Frankie (Frankie Records). The title track is a blend of a superb bass line, lot’s of bleeps and a shaking  percussion. The third track, called Flan, has a great vibe and will most certainly make your head go up and down!

Buy the EP on Beatport, Juno, iTunes etc.
I hope COG keeps doing what it’s doing right now because the potential, without any doubt, is there…
