It was only a matter of time before Steyoyoke’s Dahu lent his sounds and skills to the Steyoyoke Black procession of releases. ‘Sedated’ is a two track EP that creates a whirlpool of undulating emotion and shadowed characters, all presented within the framework of an instrumental monologue.
Uniting a collective of self-perpetuating grooves with a flurry of dark orchestral accents is the EP’s title track ‘Sedated‘. It carries a well defined harshness, which is clearly highlighted through its savvy layers and cunning arrangements. ‘Sedated’ is one ferocious track that churns and bulges with brutality, earning your utmost respect through bold artistry and stern vigour.
The final track ‘Ruin‘, can be likened to a romantic roller coaster ride. It starts off, edging and creeping with a serendipitous attitude, which quickly dissolves into a free fall of pulsing synth lines, fluid key changes and smouldering basslines. Complete this combination with a gloomy yet graceful melody and the outcome is a balanced synergetic track brimming with star quality.
