Steyoyoke is proud to announce its 9th instalment of the prolific and highly coveted “Quadrivium” compellation. This edition is comprised of 4 highly texturized and varied approaches to the storied label’s ethos. Monarke, Basil O’Glue & Nomas return to the imprint along side a mysteriously talented new comer, Faminski.
The EP commences with Monarke’s bright and alluring piece entitled “Stallion”. It sets the galloping and hopeful tone of the release. Chock-full of wistful vocal chops and a hypnotic main lead, this track will have you lost in time. Next up, we have the return of Basil O’Glue & Nomas by means of “Immersive Excess”. The juxtaposed uplifting melody and tension rising pads leave the listener on pins and needles hopeful for a calming resolve. The final two compositions, “Chemistry” and “Skyhook” are the works of a surreptitious Ukrainian artist known by the alias Faminksi. “Chemistry” is led by its hopeful and airy sequence which is nicely balanced by a cryptic and rather esoteric plucky stab. “Skyhook” concludes this arcane journey with a bouncy and hopeful lead sequence allowing the release to come full circle.
This transcendent collection of music by some of the industry’s most forward thinking artists exemplifies the type of musicality lost in time but needed most in the industry today. “Quadrivium” is yet another taste of Steyoyoke’s innate understanding cerebral electronic music. We hope you enjoy.
