Together, they’ve mixed compilations, regularly recorded for the same label and even (rumour even has it!) share the same dentist. Yet somehow a studio side-by-side between John O’Callaghan & Cold Blue has remained MIA. That is until now.
Signing the month off in pretty darn explosive form, today the two trance dons right that oversight. Title-wise we don’t think the pair are hinting at a certain natural compatibility in their musical styles. Regardless, one listen to ‘Symmetric’ and we reckon you’ll hear a synchronisation all but impossible to miss.
The pair, it transpires, have been sitting on their first production union for more than a month or two now. Cards played close to the chest, in ID form JOC first brought it out at some of this years most prestigious events- most notably Luminosity, September’s Subculture show at Melbourne’s Hisense Arena and Dreamstate. Latterly it’s also passed into the hands of a select bunch of DJs, including Armin van Buuren, who quickly spun its praises on ASOT891.
If it’s not yet found its way to your ears, well you can probably still have a reasonable guess at how the track shapes up. All four hands to the pump and shoulders to the wheel, John & Tobias quickly turn ‘Symmetric’ into a rolling boulder. Synthesized uplift, bass & drum propulsion and megaton energy form a chassis for its tenacious riffs and Krakatoan conclusion!
