Under his Raudive alias, Oliver Ho has created a trademark blend of future forward house and techno that has been the sound to some of the greatest moments on our favourite dancefloors over the last couple of months. Recently labels like Cocoon, Drumcode and Pokerflat were blessed to release superb pieces by Raudive and he created enthusiasm all accross the board from Ricardo Villalobos to Sven Väth. For his Macro debut he moved a step further: The Cone EP with its 3 cuts of twisted house brings some serious madness to the club: Raudive’s signature beats get a strong jazz infusion with bits of saxophone and an out-of-control piano spinning around the pumping bassline. Crazy all the way while delivering a maximum of dancefloor appeal.

I call it techno avantgarde! B1: Khaki, a modern way of breakbeats & a combination between experimental, film sounds & techno. Compliment! B2: Tul, probably the most interesting house track that I heard for a while!!”

Colin Dale: “Excellent music!”

Dan Curtin (Metamorphic): “Atmospheric and deep, very cool EP, can be used creatively in many situations.....”

Deetron (Music Man): “Great release! I really like "Cone" a lot, it almost reminds me a bit of Weather Report or Zawinul's early solo work, beautiful! "Khaki" is great too, really into the pads in there.”
