After the last release, signed by the one and only Andre Buljat, YAKAZI comes back again with its 8th release by the Hungarian-born, Barcelona-based Reelow. The multifaceted artist hands us ‘How About EP’, a work with three originals and one high rolling remix by HITCH.
The A-side is opened by ‘Sungularity (Original Mix)’, a percussive, steady, techno track that develops into a melodic and dreamy environment, with submarine sounds and deep atmospheres, making this a perfect track for any moment on the floor. Then we find HITCH’s take on the same track, ‘Sungularity (HITCH Remix)’, in which the Spanish producer darkens the soundscape since the beginning of the track, putting the highlight in the same submarine-sque sounds and enhancing both the time and the spaces in the tune, adding some epic character thanks to the pipe-organ sounds. A true banger.
On the B-side, we find ‘Point Of No Return (Original Mix)’, a track in which Reelow goes back to the more techier part of his sound, with a cut percussion, more groovy sounds and loops, yet with an industrial feel to it, that paired to the progression makes this track an invitation to dance. Finally, closing the EP we have the title track, ‘How About That (Original Mix)’, in which Reelow continues exploring the darkest alleys of the tech sound, with a strong and looser percussion, some interesting machine sound FX and a female vocal loop that adds up to the overall feeling of the track, yet the accent of the track remains on the percussion, with almost no melodies all along.
An interesting take by the rising Reelow for this YKZ008, that brings some variety to the overall narrative of YAKAZI’s musical discourse.
