Hailing from Detroit, you wouldn't necessarily expect Oktored to be making bass music with such a global flavour, but the Golden Zinc EP shows him to be an able producer of such material. Opening track "Bang" combines deep subs and skittish UKF style rhythms with rippling chimes, while "Cry" continues along the same path with a rich slice of future garage. "Heads Up" takes things in a moombahton direction, though with Oktored's own restrained style, letting its percolating synths build up gradually through the whipcrack snares. Despite this there are moments when his Detroit heritage comes to the fore; the minimal analogue ripples of "Push" recall the futuristic tones of Robert Hood, while the jazzy funk of "2,4,6,8" recall the sci-fi moods of early techno.
