Undoubtedly one of the fastest ascending stars in the electronic community, Colombian Khomha is a man in great demand. Following a monumental 2011 which saw him release his first full E.P. on Coldharbour with 507, remix Markus Schulz’s Sinners and be an ever-present in his liveset playlists all year long, he is set to reignite the doors of Coldharbour Red for 2012, with one of the most anticipated releases on the label for quite some time.
Hailing from Medellin, Robert Alzate Pasos first came to prominence under his Khomha guise via Markus’ Prague ’11 compilation, thanks to his track “Rainy in the Night”. Since then, he has become a key component of the Coldharbour label, and already had tongues wagging when Markus debuted his next dancefloor destroyer as his opening track from the DJ Mag Top 100 Awards during Amsterdam Dance Event week. Fusing tough techy beats and basslines with a gripping melody that hooks you in from the first few bars, Mind Gamer would go on to play a pivotal role in the Los Angeles ’12 compilation.
Not content with just his monstrous original, Khomha also demonstrates his wide-ranging talents with a beautifully melodic interpretation of Mind Gamer, which has won the hearts of many Global DJ Broadcast listeners since its debut, and also captivating the audience at Avalon in Los Angeles for the compilation release parties. “The Sky is Inside You” is a return to the Colombian’s more traditional sound, but has been a regular in Markus’ livesets since the tail end of last summer’s Ibiza season.
With Khomha ready to make his US debut during Winter Music Conference week, the release of Mind Gamer and The Sky is Inside You is perfect timing. It could be one of those unforgettable anthems of one of the most important weeks of the year for dance music.
