This year’s version of Steyoyoke’s ‘Couple Affair’ features four tracks created by a combination of two of five label members: Soul Button, Nick Devon, Dahu, Animal Picnic, and Ran Salman. This memorable vinyl only EP brings the family together by showcasing the strength and harmony created by the pioneers of ethereal techno.
Soul Button and Nick Devon join forces to create ‘Modus’, a heavenly techno imprint of a never-ending climax. Gentle yet hypnotic, the melodic nature of the synths carries a playful air, complimented by a powerful kick that embodies the mood of the entire release. Strong and dreamy, ‘Modus’ is the ideal way to begin this ‘Couple Affair’.
Nick Devon teams up with Dahu this time, giving birth to ‘Kaleidoscope’, a track with a wilder rugged feel. Truly a reflection of raw feelings, confident, unpredictable, and energetic, Nick Devon and Dahu have brought their most powerful elements to the table with this one, with shadowy basslines and heart-hitting percussions.
Animal Picnic and Ran Salman take the twisted, dark path down to their ‘Mind Maze’ with a tragically beautiful melody that invites you into its mysterious basslines and addictive synths. ‘Mind Maze’ is an appropriate title for this masterpiece, and it is certain that you may find yourself lost in the sounds and on a true trip.
The final contribution made by Soul Button and Animal Picnic, ‘Icosian’, is filled with perks that pamper the ears. The last track on this vinyl-only release sets out to break the hearts of people around the globe as they experience the emotive nature of this timeless gem. The contrast of the lows and highs have become perfectly intertwined, manipulated in subtle ways that display the art of complexity and simplicity simultaneously.
The Steyoyoke family has continued to blossom into the epitome of pleasure through the shared passion for music over the years. This year’s annual ‘Couple Affair’ release comes to you on vinyl-only, ensuring only the most pure and organic frequencies lick your ear drums. An infinite beauty, ‘Couple Affair’ stands out proudly amongst the Steyoyoke releases for it’s loyalty to celestial and ethereal techno.
