02. David Granha – Aria (Mallone Re-Enactment)
Mallone crawls back into the darkest crevices of techno with his reconstruction of Nick Devon‘s ‘Skyline‘ and David Granha‘s ‘Aria‘. Steyoyoke Black Reconstructed by Mallone envelopes you in wave upon wave of surreptitious melodies, rhythms, and sounds. Headed down a deceivingly up-beat path, make no mistake that Mallone will take you to the most covert corners of music.
Compared to Nick Devon’s original creation ‘Skyline’, a romance between the haunting nature of the melody and the minimalistic structure, Mallone’s City Light remix extends the mystical elements further into a starry dimension. Using complimentary resonance, Mallone’s remix reiterates it’s uniqueness through it’s memorable composition.
Mallone stripped down David Granha’s ‘Aria’ only to reconstruct it using thicker, wetter sounds to achieve a sultry, chunky aural dynamic with his ‘Re-enactment‘. Mallone’s fast- paced take on ‘Aria’ is a manifestation of mystery coupled with supersonic ethereal undertones. The obscurity of this track truly lies in Mallone’s ability to reconstruct a vocal- heavy original and transform it into a masterpiece which has a harmonious centre-point, where all sounds blend beautifully.
Mallone is no newcomer to the Steyoyoke family with heart-wrenching productions, Mallone solidifies his rightful place amongst the greats with this latest EP filled with reconstructions. A form of appreciation for Nick Devon and David Granha, Mallone puts an emotive twist on this elegant reconstruction EP.
