Mako Drops “Ocelot” in Anticipation for Upcoming Album

With under a month to go until the release of his next album, this is a very important track!

Mako returns with another intriguing offering “Ocelot“. It is a colorful indie-dance track with pop sensibilities. “Ocelot” continues to paint a vivid picture of what is to come on the esteemed musician’s forthcoming sophomore album, Fable. That album plans to release in early December.

To emphasize, the high-octane record opens with a stunningly memorable acoustic guitar riff propelled by a catchy soundscape of handclaps and percussion over which Mako’s emotively saccharine vocal effortlessly glides. Those unique sounds occurred as the track builds with a driving four-on-the-floor rhythm into an electro-pop anthem.

Ocelot” serves as a true testament to Mako’s unique artistic vision. That vision includes his ever-evolving sound as a producer. Following a string of six singles, Seaver once again proves that he has evolved to a point that his work no longer restrains itself to any musical genre. After reading this review, listen to the track below.

Here’s what Mako had to say about “Ocelot”:

“I started the idea for Fable on a pretty unusual and meaningful trip to Norway, literally stowed away on an empty farm for a little while.  Everything was intense and thoughtful at the time.  My close friends made a surprise trip to meet me in Stockholm after I was done – not much to say here except for a legendary few days of partying.  This song was written about that break in the trip, with us running around town doing god knows what.  I love it for Fable because I personally feel like it’s such an infectious side-note in an otherwise pretty somber and deliberate collection of songs, which is just what that week in Sweden meant to me.”

I'm a crazed motoring fan and I have been listening to EDM for a major chunk of my life. I'm particularly interested in Dutch house, Progressive house and Tropical house. Is that enough house? My favourite DJs are Robin Schulz, Jay Hardway and Mike Williams.
