To celebrate Steyoyoke’s 7th Anniversary, we are releasing a 4 track EP – Anniversary 07 – in both digital and vinyl editions. A small showcase of some of Steyoyoke’s best original cuts, this short release exists in the space between traditional and Steyoyoke’s trademark Ethereal Techno, highlighting the talents of select artists on the roster.
The release begins with the mysterious and refined ‘Cadence’ by Soul Button. A strong, consistent baseline is paired with with echoing details that dance from the mid to higher layers, making this an enchanting introduction.
Nick Devon follows on perfectly with his diverse track, ‘The Moon’. Beginning with the same soothing echoes, he introduces layers that transform the track from a soothing melancholy to a compelling mix with a distinct harder energy.
Clawz SG’s track ‘Alchemy’ then brings a sharpness to the EP with a diverse range of percussive and synth elements that dip in and out, giving the track a dynamic quality. It is a track that maintains the listener’s attention and could fit in on any techno floor.
The EP is brought to a conclusion with a stunning mix from Dahu & JOBE, ‘Inert’, which set itself apart from the get-go with a mix of eclectic percussion and dynamic bass. Not afraid to experiment, it shows impeccable attention to detail as themes are introduced, pulled back, reworked, and re-introduced constantly throughout, giving a listener more with every replay.
This EP showcases some of the most dynamic points of Steyoyoke’s past year, showing the ways in which Ethereal Techno can mold and adapt to always stay ahead of the curve.
