Steyoyoke Black welcomes a new Brazilian artist, Vicius, to the burgeoning imprint with this dark and foreboding EP, “Reconnect”. Its powerful and heavy low end will have you imagining yourself in a strobe-filled warehouse dancing until sunrise.
The release begins with the title track, “Reconnect”. The most powerful of the three, this track exemplifies dark melodic techno. From its heavy kick, to its driving sub bass, this track is a peak time stomper. Next, we have “The Message” and its rising leads and sorrowful pads. This piece has a subtlety to it that favors the emotional, where the clouds seem to part and good fortune is on the horizon, only to be immersed into the dark atmosphere once more. Lastly, “Reaching” returns the listener to the dance floor combining both melody in the form of a scaling horn lead and warehouse vibe by way of deep heavy kicks and bass stabs.
Vicius’ “Reconnect” EP will have you entranced and wanting more. From the driving basslines to the sorrowful and yearning ambiance, this release is a bold and powerful statement that will thrust you back to the clubs.
