As &MEs last two EPs on Keinemusik have been hitting the bulls eye of public perception immediately, his KM034 for sure will meet high expectations from DJs and crowd alike. What should one do within this sort of spotlight? Boil up the same old formula? Milk the cow? Play it safe? Well, &ME is rather going for the dont overthink it and just do whatever you like-option. Which in case of this "One On One"-EP is a collaborative effort with English singer/songwriter-enigma Fink thats letting musicality rule over functionality.
The titletrack on A comes creeping over the floor like an ash cloud. Built up on a grainy beat-pattern, having all lightness dashed out by droning bass, before Finks vocals are exorcising the ghosts of a heavy comedown. "One On One" has shaken off the facility of peaktime-consensus, before the straight kick comes in, but even that unmistakeable floor-referral is invalidated by gloomy harmonies after just a few bars. An obvious move against leadsingle-standards, but considering its omnipresent dark narrative and ultimately condensed vibe, "One On One" is without a doubt one of the strongest &ME cuts ever.
The offering on B1 might be considered as a bit more handy, but still: "Cape Coast" is rather grooving along a serious jungle-delirium than delivering easygoing beach-pleasure. A lot of hissing and chirping and rattling going on in between dense synth- and bass-layers, while live-recorded percussions are escalating into frenzy. Tribalhouse of a rather demonic breed.
Finally, Fink is stripping down the original outline of "One On One" into a sinister and subtle Dub-interpretation on B2. Blurred delays, sparse synths and occasionally implemented kick-detonations, reminding of an alarmingly lowered RHR. Meaning even wider room for his charisma breathing croon.
Bastinov returns the Etruria Beat to follow up 2015's successful 'Prisma' ep, with a brand new outing in the form of 'Space Programmer'. The title track opens with its hypnotic synth sequence atop a strong, driving 909 based beat. Cosmic follows with its weighty arpeggio that push the track with their melancholic vibes.
On the flip Roberto Clementi takes the title track into darker zones with distorted elements and added drone. Closing the EP is the Detroit inspired cut Regis, that reminds us of the glory days of the great Motor City.
Steyoyoke’s ‘Emmanuel’ EP has been lived and loved by several members of the family. The original, by Dizharmonia featuring vocals by Kled Moné, has been remixed by Soul Button as well as Clawz SG in this dauntingly harmonious EP. An instrumental of ‘Emmanuel’ is also featured, to give way for a full appreciation of the productive elements.
Dizharmonia’s original version of ‘Emmanuel’ is a tasteful collection of varying sounds, arranged in an immaculate manner which swallows listeners in. Kled Moné’s vocals add a a luscious texture to this ethereal track, making way for a space-like atmospheric vibe, transforming dance floors and lights into planets and stars.
Soul Button’s remix features an array of shakes and twists that add an extra groove in your step. The synthesized elements bring forth a playful rhythm, making Soul Button’s remix slightly bouncier in it’s intricacies. Soul Button manages to add those elements which make his production stand out, whilst remaining true to Dizharmonia’s original simultaneously.
Clawz SG takes on ‘Emmanuel’ in his own way; perhaps the most complex of all arrangements featured, Clawz SG truly makes this track his own. Using manipulations that seek to sharpen the peaks, and dig deeper into the lows, this melodic track organically displays both Dizharmonia’s and Clawz SG’s talents.
It is just to claim that ‘Emmanuel’ is a rarity in the sense that it is almost a perfectly accurate description of the Steyoyoke label - written with sounds instead of words. A strong EP featuring many members of the Steyoyoke family, ‘Emmanuel’ is a a reflection of the progress and love behind Steyoyoke.
Butch is no stranger to Saved having already appeared with a remix of
Lauren Lane’s massive “Cool Kids” that he worked on with label boss Nic
Fanciulli. The EP has already gained an incredible buzz around it and
both tracks are characterised by distinct, tribal elements.
"Veni Vidi Vici" has an intense buildup with its rising strings which has seen support from heavyweight Ricardo Villalobos
and on the other side "Truncatis" is a unique acid workout.

Every artist has their own perspective, imagination, style and inspirations. They share this with the world through their creations and performances, their own musical concepts. Each concept is unique, as is every performance.
Polymath can be defined as ‘many talents’. The Polymath concept will ask different artists to create pieces inspired by their perception of a singular theme. This concept gives artists the freedom to share their own visions on a given notion, to push and stretch their boundaries of creativity, and to present inspired tracks and artwork.
Each Polymath release is an experiment. It will include three different artists’ pieces inspired by the same theme. This is tied together with ornate artwork to complete the bespoke showpiece.

The South African phenomenon Black Coffee has become well known in recent years due to his impeccable blend of house, infused with African culture and vibes. In 2012, ‘Buya’ was released featuring the stunning vocalist Yoshi. The track went platinum in Africa in 2 months, bringing Black Coffee into the international spotlight. Now, Get Physical has taken the reigns and handed the track over to Loco Dice, M.A.N.D.Y. and Da Cappo for their remix wizardry.
Loco Dice who has African roots spends his proceeds of the EP for the development of the new website, and the donation campaign for the Kliptown Youth Centre in Soweto, South Africa, a non-profit project that provides hope through tutoring, athletic, music and arts programs. The returns will go to helping the heroes of the Kliptown Youth Center in Soweto, South Africa, giving kids a chance to create and express themselves whereas they might not have had that chance before. The youth is our future, and right now they need our help and support.
