Chocolate Puma raves on with ‘Popatron’

Dutch duo Chocolate Puma has today released one of its most acclaimed tracks in years, the raw and blazing tune ‘Popatron’. The release follows weeks of teasing, the track going round as ID, and an artist reveal combined with the presentation of a cool new app, making it possible for the audience to play with the track’s basic elements and create your own version: 

‘Popatron’ displays a gritty tech sound based on a raw bass and blazing drum patterns. A somewhat different vibe than usual on the Spinnin’ Deep imprint, but it’s not getting any less love from the DJ guild, ranging from support by Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Tiësto, Blasterjaxx and Quintino to Oliver Heldens, Diplo, Martin Solveig and A-Trak. For sure, it’s a tune made for rave highlights, but not like anything you’ve heard before. Out of the box dance music, it’s become something of a trademark for the Dutch duo..

Now these guys know how to drop classics, they’ve almost invented the term as they started out producing music in the early 90s, delivering club hits under several artist names. Most famous are probably The Goodmen and Jark Prongo –just check these names on the web and discover a collection of awesome oldskool house music!
Well, as they helped shape the original house genre, the duo always kept on producing up-to-date tunes under the name Chocolate Puma. Recently, as oldskool house sounds have gained popularity again, this resulted in several big releases, including their summer 2015 single ‘I Could Be Wrong’ and, recently, their Tommie Sunshine collab ’Scrub The Ground’, both tracks receiving lots of feedback and DJ support by the likes of Oliver Heldens, Diplo, A-Trak, Don Diablo, Example and Bob Sinclar as well as Calvin Harris, Hardwell, David Guetta and Porter Robinson.

So, the boys are back, with surely another classic in their pocket.
