Steyoyoke Black is proud to welcome Italian duo Never Lost to its ranks with their sublime ‘Minor’ EP. Featuring 3 fast paced techno hypnotizers, ‘Minor’ is bound to make waves for the Italian newcomers.
‘Minor’ starts out in eclectic fashion with a thrusting bass line and hectic percussion. A tremorous lead fuels the tracks ominous atmosphere before it subtly disintegrates into a silent climax. Ominous stabs re-enter the fray, building continuously until the tension is artfully released by a pounding kick and toms.
‘Sentiero’ introduces a pinch of bliss to the Never Lost sound. Where ‘Minor’ is ominous, ‘Sentiero’ releases waves of heart-wrenching nostalgia. An oppressive kick sets the scene for blippy horns and arps to work their haunting magic, while a divine pad pristinely rounds off this excursion into the musical soul of the artists.
‘Inertia’ completes the trifecta in splendid fashion. An otherworldly pad and a throbbing monotonous bass progressively induce a state of trance in the listener. A compelling lead synthesiser draws all the attention while rims and percussions lathered in reverb subtly let the track drift onto another plane.
Never Lost have created a stunning debut on Steyoyoke Black with ‘Minor’. While all three tracks shine in their own right, Never Lost show that they have diligently honed and crafted a sound they can call their own.
