Founded by acclaimed Singaporean DJ-producer Eddie Niguel, Integrity Records has formed a wonderful reputation for its unwavering commitment to quality, and its refreshing breadth of influences ranging "from the finest deep house to peak time mainroom cuts and beyond." True to the label's name, its building catalogue has continued to embody musical integrity over the past year, and that certainly extends to their latest Italian signee as well - Kocleo.
Hailing from Rome, the burgeoning producer has been turning plenty of heads in recent years (supporters include Laurent Garnier, Danny Tenaglia and Joris Voorn, just to name a few) with his stunning house and techno releases all across the globe. His latest record entitled Choice, released earlier this year on Integrity, is a perfect encapsulation of his signature non-linear style. The four-track, house-inspired EP chugs and bounces with Kocleo's warm analog approach.
With past successes on great imprints like Audiomatique and Morris Audio under his belt, alongside future cuts for Last Night On Earth and Droog’s Culprit on the horizon - Kocleo is certainly crafting an enviable oeuvre for himself. Next up, he will be flying down to Singapore to headline Integrity Records' intimate first anniversary party at Headquarters by The Council on Saturday, 8 July. But before then, the Italian revelation makes a pit stop on the Bandwagon Mix with an absolutely brilliant hour-long preview of the goodness to come.

Every week, Bandwagon invites a guest to do a mix for us. Rather than a standard interview where the artist explains their influences, we figured it’d be more potent if you simply listened to the music.
We provide the context, they provide the sounds.
