Soul Button – Shadows EP
Actually, let's not worry too much about that and concentrate on what it sounds like. There are four tracks on offer – Shadows itself, Shine and Talking, which features fellow Steyoyoke artist Bartok and comes in a choice of vocal or dub mixes. And yeah, 'soulfully-infused tech-house' pretty much sums it up but if you want a touch more detail, Shine features a vocal from La Phoenix that reminds me a little of Billie Ray Martin, Shadows rides a slightly funkier groove and has heavily-distorted male vox, while Talking is dramatic, cinematic and sweeping, and veers a little closer to prog territory.
Skinny-jeaned young hipsters are gonna love this one. I don't mind it myself either, particularly Talking… let's just hope it doesn't turn out to be by anyone too embarrassing, eh?
Out: This week
About: This is only the third release from new Berlin-based label Steyoyoke… click for their website or here's their Soundcloud and Facebook pages. Oh yeah, and I nearly forgot… here's a free downloadable mix from Soul Button as well.
