Antonio Olivieri presents a sort of tightness and sheen quality in his tracks that grade him a highly skilled and polished producer. Antonio helms a knack of finding inescapable mood and desire in this 3 track EP, ʻRudimentsʼ: the latest from Steyoyoke, and arguable itʼs most exciting output yet.
The EP combines elements of repose and melodic tranquility with dance worthy tracks. As the title suggests rudimentary components provide the basis, in a way that distinguishes each track to its own dance floor setting.
The title track kicks off in true thumping fashion! The bassline sheds hints of acid, while the hovering synth line rounds the track into a driving dance floor killer! Enticing old school vocal cuts hang loosely over the arrangement.
The somewhat eccentric notions carried in ʻTiny Nutʼ, through his trickling hi-hats and descending basslines, creates a wonderful deep house exoticism, that you may find easy to lose yourself in. Somewhere in the middle we find a jacking vocal cut bringing us from under the trees for a brief moment in time. Earthy sounds make this track warm and enticing, but donʼt assume itʼs not dance floor material, because it is!
Swirling synth pads and a heavy kick lead the closing track ʻMinnaʼ: a deep expedition in to acid ridden basslines and hypnotic percussions. In the breakdown, distant Spanish vocals help create this mysterious setting.
Antonio Olivieri has provided 3 intensely satisfying tracks for Steyoyokeʼs 6th release. ʻRudimentsʼ is an EP rich in mood and atmosphere, and one that is likely to entice any dry dance floor!
