Michael Foiou aka Michael Berklin is a producer and DJ based in Cyprus and here we see his Eyepatch debut with a superb two track EP entitled “S.O.P.A.”. Michael has always loved to explore music and he got his first synthesiser at the age of just 12. After meeting film composer Mario Christophorou (Christopher Breeze) he found himself on the path of electronica and has played with many genres. With releases on many top progressive and trance labels we see a change of direction into deep house and tech.
The title track is a real deep tech monster with a solid and strong groove carved out by the expert arrangements on percussion and drums. A wonderful deep bass sits behind a mesmerizing continuous synth note, this provides the main focus of the track and a perfect tool for any late night party.
“Do Not Cover” continues the deep dark theme for this EP with a bit more attention to the many percussive instruments on offer. Again we see a brilliant bassline keep us in the deeper realms of house while the hypnotising synth work will keep your body flowing, superb stuff.
