Steyoyoke and Steyoyoke Black habitué Arude is in for a couple of reconstructions. In this brand new edition of Steyoyoke Black Reconstructed EP series, the Ukrainian producer takes charge of duties, delivering two exquisite reworks of pieces from the imprint’s back catalogue, proving to be more than capable of fulfilling the challenge.
First reinterpretation goes to the already obscure track ‘Thousand Words’ from Altego. He enhances its murkiness by crafting some hypnotic sinister loops as well as increasing its dance floor potential by making its groove more well-defined. Tension is evident all over its structure and it’s taken to extreme during a scenic breakdown. Creepiness abundance.
Second rework is dedicated to ‘Minor’ by Never Lost. Arude here thickens the punch and introduces a deeper bass-line as he strives to orchestrate graceful melodic evolution until the acid sonorities, present from first minutes on, reassume protagonism in a power drop.
Arude prodigiously assembles every element you’d expect from a proper Steyoyoke Black release, making his dynamic intervention on this two, on-point techno cuts that apparently were designed among the shadows.
