Those of you who have an obsession for the ‘new’ will by now almost certainly have heard bell melody Tensnake’s ‘Coma Cat’ and its unmistakable hook. It’s a nu-disco, meets classic disco, meets 80’s boogie meets house hybrid that will almost certainly have you hypnotised.
The record has been bubbling since January of this year and has been steadily attracting attention like iron filings drawn to a magnet. The catalyst to this activity was Tensnake’s phenomenal debut podcast on Resident Advisor – a site regarded as the last word in underground house – which first brought the track to everyone full attention.
“From the title track's opening euphoric squeal of female ecstasy and the ensuing bells, clicks and congas that follow soon after, "Coma Cat" is drenched in such thick, honey-like loveliness that it would be churlish to criticise it in any way”.
Needless to say the track instantly picked up a Mixmag Big Tune review and has been enthusiastically supported by various dance music power houses from Aeroplane and Friendly Fires to Pete Tong and Annie Mac.
This blissfully exultant track, 'Coma Cat' with its a big synthy bassline, old-school piano stabs and an almost overwhelmingly joyful hook will undoubtedly be a sure-fire festival hit for the summer from Melbourne to Ibiza to Miami. Expect to be hearing it relentlessly over the coming months and watch out for remixes dropping soon.
Coma Cat is out now on Defected Records.
