A pleasant balance
Mark Haaxman and Lars Maasland are those two kids you knew in college that were convinced they were going to be famous musicians one day and spent way more time playing music and going to shows than studying. These two Dutchmen, now known together as LarryKoek, are also those two kids you knew in college that somehow made it big and are riding the wave of success while you’re sitting at your desk reading this. After launching their musical careers in their college dorm and gaining a following by releasing remixes online, LarryKoek released their first original track “Premiere Fois,” an offering to the music gods that watch over us all. Apparently the offering was well received, as LarryKoek have since signed a record deal and saw their low key banger reach #1 on Hype Machine. “Premiere Fois” is a neatly wrapped package of house music that brings a chilled out vibe to the genre that is often overly energetic and in-your-face.
