This wonderful release sees him move towards a dubstep / dub style sound whilst retaining his trademark 'massive' drums and experimental nature. Additionally, touches of femininity can be found on this release in order to balance the masculine bass(es) and drums.
Unique to the music scene in Luxembourg, Koknoz is always pushing boundaries, usually in the direction they don't want to be pushed. This release sees ghostly vocals melting into space. Below this pulsating bass rythmically fires up the track and above, crashing scattered drums tend to leave you both wanting to dance and lie down.
The opener 'A Love Song' and 'Skrewed' are available on the Renegade Screw website to stream. This is his first release for the newly launched site, and is certainly his most accessible to date. Somewhat akin to riding a bike on stilts, but up to waist height in water.
Additionally, some other tracks from the release are available on the artist's last.fm page.
Available as both a direct download or as a high-speed torrent, there is no reason not to download this gem for free.

Renegade Screw is a dynamic young organisation promoting unique explorations into the interconnected worlds of music, arts and poetry. The site features works by a variety of artists based in Luxembourg and Edinburgh.
Bending rules and questioning the format, our artists explore their visions and present them in unique ways.
An infusion of culture in Luxembourg and Edinburgh, we are dedicated to providing an exciting roster of artists with a platform to release high-quality content online.
MP3 files will soon be available from our music artists. Artwork will be produced in a variety of formats available for users to view and in addition to this, Poetry will be presented from within our epic collection of artists.
All of this will be free, with Renegade Screw challenging the traditional concept of record label, art gallery and book publisher in the digital age.
All releases will be seen as an opportunity to challenge the medium and structure of traditional pop culture.
