2015 was an incredible breakthrough year for Kokiri. With his debut single Retrospect (Turn Back Time) released on Ministry of Sound (UK) and Big Beat/Atlantic Records (US), 26 year old Liverpudlian Kevin Williams had the kind of introduction to the global dance scene that most producers would die for. Annie Mac made the track her special delivery, hammering it on her Friday night BBC Radio 1 show. Colleagues Danny Howard, Pete Tong, Mistajam and Greg James all followed suit. Club support came from far and wide with the likes of The Magician, Oliver Heldens, Tiesto, EDX and many more all hammering the feel-good anthem of the year.
Further releases in 2016 then saw Kokiri release with labels such as Danny Howard’s Nothing Else Matters imprint and Love & Other with his tracks ‘Harmony’ with Adam F featuring Rae and Energy with A Minor feat. DTale.
2017 brings his next installment, this time with Hoxton based label Perfect Havoc. Sampling Julie McKnight’s Home (Defected), Kokiri is going solo again in the studio with Chasing. This uplifting, piano driven, club thumper has already been getting massive support in the UK from the likes of Greg James on BBC Radio 1, Steve Smart, Justin Wilkins, Billy Da Kid, DJ Pioneer, Andy Wilson and Tough Love on Kiss 100 plus a host of podcast support from the likes of Thomas Gold, Benny Benassi, Judge Jules, Tiesto & Tchami, Don Diablo, Sam Feldt and more.
Chasing gets a whole new make over from Swedish producer ‘Tobtok’ who delivers his own Swede flavor to the track with support already coming in from The Magician on his latest Magic Tape 71 and DJ Pioneer on Kiss 100.
