Steyoyoke Black presents some fresh blood for their most recent EP and it comes in the form of a producer who releases under the name of David Granha. The spotlight falls generously upon this Spanish born musician, who makes his initial mark on the Steyoyoke Black label with a three track solo EP titled ‘Aria’.
‘Aria’ can best be described as an aural contortion, where classical collides head on with melodic techno. Intertwining elements from each genre to create one defining masterpiece, it is unique and intriguing to the ear. The backbone of the track aligns with its rich melodies and driving energy, its intensity however, revolves around the opera vocals which cut through the techno flavoured sound, adding a whole new depth to 'Aria's' entirety.
The second track on the EP is ‘Opus 52’ and it’s full of hidden surprises, twists and turns. The first thing to hit you is a wall of pulsating bass, accompanied by smooth rolling drum layers and some crunchy tough percussion. A surprise then casually arises, captured perfectly by an electro style synth riff, which is both perky and lofty in its vibe.
‘Tessitura’ is the third and final track on this release and it closes the curtains on ‘Aria’ in absolute style and grace. ‘Tessitura’ embodies a modest zest and plenty of bounce. It’s laced with minuet intricacies and a lustre of quirky soundscapes, encompassing everything you want to hear and feel on the dance floor.
