Steyoyoke’s Family Affair series returns to mark its 6th release to date. The second half of this double release features remixes by Steyoyoke core producers Soul Button, Dahu and Nick Devon.
Dahu’s startling opener packs a tremendous punch. His rendition of Nick Devon’s ‘Devotion’ features a pulsating landscape of submerged arps and distorted bass controlled by a brutally efficient groove.
Nick Devon returns the favour by applying his talents to Dahu’s ‘Never’. A hectic smattering of percussions and toms set the scene for this aesthetic piece of throbbing techno as ethereal synths weave in and out taking the listener on a spectral journey through Neverland.
Soul Button delivers his second contribution to Family Affair 6 with his Aurora Remix for Clawz SG’s ‘Solace’. An inventive groove full of tambourines and shakers merges with blissful melodies providing a soothing contrast within the EP.
Finally, Nick Devon offers one for the soul in his Ambient Remix of Dahu’s ‘Never’. Building on the soul touching keys of the original, Nick Devon elevates the track to astral heights, displaying the more remote corners of his stunning auditory spectrum.
Steyoyoke’s 6th edition of the Family Affair project is a jack of all trades, boasting melodic soundscapes and explosive floor fillers alike.
