The next single from Kozmik Hype Recordings features two blazing tracks from Toronto DJ/producer Darren Marshall, a veteran of the Canadian scene who has previous releases on the likes of Dirty Deluxe, Crystal Sound, and Deeperfect Records. Darren presents the funkier side of house music here, with swelling, percussive cuts that will easily satisfy the nightclub dance floor. The pair is led by “Groove Like This,” a durable stomper that features filtered chords, a rumbling bass line, snazzy rhythms, and a floor-pleasing saxophone melody. “We Know Jack” follows, bringing a skippy, jackin’ four-on-the-floor beat in focus, anchoring a bouncy low end, effected vocal stabs, and a bit of cool percussion elements. Funk is the name of the game, and Darren Marshall knows it … Kozmik Hype’s latest is primed and ready for the next late night house music affair.
