30 Minutes Of Bass Education #8 - Coki (2014)
Am I the only one who knows of this artist by the two records 'Square Off' and 'Spongebob'? I remember buying the CD 'Sound Of Dubstep', and I think it was 'Spongebob' on it. That was my introduction into Coki, and quickly after I remember checking Youtube to see if he made more records. The one that stuck, was 'Square Off'. But after listening to those two records, Coki disappeared in my books. Don't know why, seeing as I really liked both records a lot.
Anyway, a few days ago I stumbled across the CD on which his song appeared on, and I pressed play. I immediately fell in love again with the Dubstep sound from around 2010, and when I heard Coki's song, everything fell into pieces. I danced around my living room like a monday on pure acid. And it felt good. So I went onto Soundcloud, to see if there was more Coki, and thankfully, there was.
This channel called 'FatKidOnFire' (what's in the name?) made this dedication mix back in 2014, and it contains 20 records by Coki! 20 records in 30 minutes, wtf? Are you for real? This is going to be amazing, if the records are as good as 'Spongebob' and 'Square Off'.

Just looking at the tracklist brings a smile to my face. So simple, these tracknames. No mucking about, no deep and profound meaning, just titles like 'Red Eye', 'Dry Cry', 'Burnin'' and more. Why overcomplicate things when simplicity is key? But only the titles are simple, the music is on a deeper level. The kind of Dubstep I really like.
Sadly after 'Spongebob' and 'Square Off', Coki disappeared on my radar, but he's been a busy boy. It could just be my fault for not following him, but Dubstep kind of wasn't my thing at one stage, so I stopped listening to it. Maybe I should have, would have known about Coki and his musical presence in the scene.
I do love this mix by FatKidOnFire. 30 minutes long, 20 records crammed in. Nothing wrong with that. But which of those 20 records stood out? Well, there's one simple answer to that: 'Square Off'. It's even better than the song named after a cartoon character. So deep and on a different level man. I loose myself completely when I hear those familiar keys.
A wonderful mix to start your Sunday morning with. Nice and relaxed. And I will definately follow Coki on social media. I have to. It's been nearly 10 years since I last heard from him.
