The Steyoyoke family will be brushing the sand of its skin for the next couple of months, as they prepare to migrate south for the winter to Brazil. In wake of this landmark occasion Steyoyoke will be encapsulating the vibes in a special ‘Steyoyoke In Brazil’ EP to be released in December. The EP is made up of five original tracks from the family members and will also feature the winning track of the musicians Steyoyoke in Brazil contest.
Florian Rietze picks the baton up first as he sets things off with the ethereal ‘Desterro’. Gentle padwork creates the impression of lights blinking off and on again as the beat shuttles along an engaging rhythm. Distant vocal samples help create atmosphere and depth in this dreamy affair.
Hypnotizing vocals from BLANCAh stand at the forefront of the electric ‘Vendavais’. MPathy creates a landscape that is rich with atmosphere, where water meets the land and the wind creates the tone. Teasing Brazilian percussion samples come and go against a humming bassline.
Soul Button flirts between the more placid side of Brazilian life and the get up and go ‘carnival’ way of doing things. ‘Inspiração’ encapsulates the latin american flavour, endearing windchimes and ambient beach samples breakdown into a fiesta of rhythm and percussion.
As the title may suggest, Dahu has not held back in giving ‘Psicodélica’ a touch of psychedelic to it. A quirky vocal sample sets the tone, as energetic synth chords race across the board to deliver purpose. Tipping exquisitely over the edge, Dahu serves up a track that is ready for the floor.
Having the final say on matters is Sasch, with his well balanced funky anthem ‘Agora’. Building with perfection, Sasch has mastered a real eccentric beauty with this one right here. Broken guitar strings fling off into the distance as a bassy vocal harmony imposes more and more.
The last 3 tracks on this EP come from russian dj and producer KatrinKa from London, Andro V from Bulgaria and nierMINT and Mister Deejay from Florianopolis, Brazil who won the ‘Steyoyoke In Brazil‘ contest which was organized by Steyoyoke and Talenthouse.
