When it comes to music that never skips a beat, renowned DJ, Joe Kool, delivers the goods with his 30-minute charismatic and upbeat run-through of “This One’s Kool” from his Deep Frequency Mix Sessions; a record of twists and turns, bumps and grinds, and extremely dynamic production value.
The esteemed artist is no stranger to the turntables and has garnered critical acclaim along with an escalating fan base over the years from his insatiable experience in the field of House Music and its components to the genre; opening a world of opportunity to compose and create, to put his vision into an audio reality.
His beats have an old school approach, but have that powerful, punchy edge of today’s sensibility. It’s a brilliant 30-minute segment that’d be perfect for an event like Ultrafest. And though you can hear relentless House artist influences, there’s still a dynamic and versatile edge that makes Joe Kool stand out on his own. His transitioning between samples and the beats are smooth and never stray away from its formula. It has that classic 90s feel with today’s rhythmic and straight-forward production.
I’ve come across a lot of DJ mixes and House artists over the years, and it’s absolutely refreshing to hear something that doesn’t drench you in overpost-production, where the true character of a song or artist might be saturated or overdone. Joe Kool keeps it completely real, and his mixing and mastering efforts on “This One’s Kool” definitely does justice for his DJ abilities.
