Possibly one of our favorite labels right now, Berlin based Steyoyoke Recordings, venture into unchartered waters with this new project that combines years of hard work and marks the release of their very first album titled ‘Equilibrium’.

The Steyoyoke artists are united within a unique concept, that utilises the four classical elements of fire, air, water and earth, bringing you a creative expression that reflects a state of balance between art, music and the natural elements. Each track is an original production, however they are grouped accordingly to symbolise a particular element that represents the tracks sound and vibe. In its entirety, the whole album creates its very own state of ‘Equilibrium‘.

There are two tracks that express the element of Fire on ‘Equilibrium’, ‘Shattered‘ by Dahu & MPathy and Nick Devon & BLANCAh‘s collaboration ‘Harmstring‘. Both tracks embody a robust energy, that is both rebellious and at times even menacing. They capture a balance of sharp, stabbing percussion with passionate edgy synth chords.

The element of Air is represented by a total of four tracks. These are Ran Salman ‘Zephyr‘, Soul Button & Nick Devon ‘Fading Light‘, Soul Button & BLANCAh ‘Rising Silence‘ and Animal Picnic‘s ‘Gravity‘. Uplifting in nature, all four tracks have the ability to build tension, as well as allowing for moments of softness and tranquility. Dreamy melodies impact you with sensations of movement and flow, creating a smooth hypnotic vibe.

The three tracks that signify the element of Water are, Soul Button & Ran Salman ‘Aquarius‘, Aaryon & Ran Salman ‘Riptide‘ and BLANCAh’s ‘Ripple Effect‘. Channelling a strong fluidity and freshness to their sound, all three tracks carry a subtle progression. Blending clean hitting drums with meandering synths, each tracks groove fluctuates with its own ebb and flow, creating a heightened sense of emotion and atmosphere.

‘Abyss‘ by Dahu & MPathy as well as Soul Button & MPathy’s ‘Tremors‘ are the chosen tracks to symbolise the fourth element of Earth. Possessing relentless bass lines and a sense of nobility, both tracks are sequential in providing a powerful dense sound. Rich melodies portray an organic warmth, that invoke an impression of stability, exposing the grounding sentiments held within each track.

The final track on ‘Equilibrium’, symbolises the unity of all four elements. It brings fire, air, water and earth together to signify the ‘Natural Order’. Possessing moments of toughness and attitude, as well as moments of down tempo simplicity, this track certainly portrays plenty of character. ‘Natural Order’ tells a story and allows for a dignified message to be shared.

Aden – Tanz | EP Comments

Ultramajic is building a core of secretive producers. After closing out 2014 with a record from unknown newcomer Crystal Bandito, the label will return in 2015 with an offering from semi-anonymous beatmaker Aden. The tracks on Tanz are hewn from bouncing drums, vocal yelps, glittering keys, and a few functional white noise-infused breakdowns that pack a solid dose of energy and spirit. From rigid pumpers to soothing textures, the Tanz EP contains a range of moods to fuel human bodies on the CONTINUE READING

T.G.I.M.: CW/A – Clockwork and Avatism – Live at Fabric London Comments

For this Monday's dose of tunes, I have chosen a set from a live project consisting of Italian friends Clockwork and Avatism. Their live collaboration has been dubbed quite simply, CW/A and has already made a huge impression within the genre.  CW/A came out with a four-track 'Conducting the Method' EP, which was released by Vakant in September of 2014 and have been playing live shows together ever since. The two Milano producers, Clockwork and Avatism, have been very close friends since childhood, CONTINUE READING

Words With: Joris Voorn + ‘Nobody Knows’ Album Review Comments

  To start things off,you run two labels, ‘Green’ which seems to focus on more emotional electronic music, and ‘Rejected’ which focuses on club-oriented tracks. How do you wrangle running two labels while still producing music and touring? I do it with my good friend Edwin Oosterwal. He makes sure everything is smooth and running properly. I travel alot and get a lot of music from people in the process. I speak to tons of artists who also send me music as well. It’s good to meet CONTINUE READING
