Kerowack

The First EP

by Joe Tacopino

London-based DJs Dan Gerber and Soul Good (who are also known as Kerowack) have been a fixture on the Euro dance circuit with their infectious and soulful dance tracks. The duo has released a number of singles, including the song “Dirty Bumf”, which turned into a minor hit, complete with a post-ironic-retro roller skating video. The aptly titled First EP is the first non-single released by the duo and displays an array of glitchy and surprisingly danceable electronica Dan Gerber and Soul Good can get down and grimy with tracks such as “Dirtgrabber” and the shrill-sounding “Naf Monk”, but what makes The First EP accessible to non-electro enthusiasts is the inclusion of vocals: Milly Blue with her gentle riffs on “Fuck Guitars” and Doc Brown’s soul rhyming with “Keep it Movin’”. Electronic music usually has two ends of the spectrum: obscure electronica and straight-up dance. Kerowack does a decent of straddling both of these extremes.
