Kosh belongs to Casa Voyager posse that has put Morocco on the map of cutting-edge club music with a variety of tracks between techno and electro. The artist, 28-year-old Youssef Benjelloun from Casablanca, has joined the mini compilations and brought out a solo EP for the label that draws inspiration from a train station – actually called Casa-Voyageurs – in the Moroccan metropolis.
To continue the tour on foreign labels, after Mechatronica and Sounds Benefit the Moroccan has landed on Eudemonia, a German imprint where Plant43 and Lerosa have previously explored electro’s milder side and Kosh’s “Endless Quest” takes a similar path. The only exception is the chiming and speeding title track, a 1990s flashback with progressive house and trance textures. The rest stands for rather laid back mood, when broken beats with IDM notes in “Trespassing” would fit the aesthetics of legendary “Artificial Intelligence”. The B-side’s pensive electro “Damn Frogs” is stunning people with nature’s little wonders, while the culmination arrives with laid back bass and winding acid lines of “Benefit Of The Doubt”.
Simultaneously, Kosh keeps the engines warm for the home label, when his next EP on Casa Voyager is out in April 2019.
