Blende & Surrender’s new EP is out today via La Bombe Records, and to celebrate they’ve uploaded the final track that makes up the three-track EP. ‘Flash’ actually finds a middle ground between both the heavy hitting ‘Synapse’ and ‘Circus’, it’s still a fairly banging piece of French electro, but it’s tempered with plenty of off-the-cuff melodies and rasping riffs to keep you on your toes.

Two of the most exciting producers we came across in 2012 were Blende & Surrender, and now the rising stars are combining like their French heroes for a new EP on London label La Bombe.
Two of the most impressive rising stars in 2012 for us were La Bombe’s Surrender! and Blende – both artists had a great 2012, with Surrrender releasing his self-titled debut album and Blende released a stomping funk EP via Belgium label Eskimo.
Ulas Koca, better known by his stage name Surrender!, has just released his debut self-titled album via fledgling label La Bombe. We recently interviewed the Turkish producer and he admitted to us that he made his album without any proper speakers. “I don’t have any hardware synths, I don’t even have any monitors”.
From his base in Turkey Ulas Koca, aka Surrender!, has been beavering away for nine months to produce his self-titled debut album ‘Surrender!’ – with his tracks finding there way into the CD wallets of Digitalism, Treasure Fingers and Aeroplane he is already making a name for himself with his unique blende of futuristic electro and 80′s disco.
2012 has seen a real lack of compelling new talent breaking the blog-world, compared to 2011 rising stars have been few and far between, but 23-year-old Turkish producer Surrender! has made quite an impact in a small space of time and with his debut album dropping on La Bombe in September, you’re sure to see his name more and more.
