Steyoyoke presents the 11th installment of the coveted Quadrivium EP. As the namesake implies, this EP is comprised of four tracks from up and coming talent that now can call this storied Imprint home. Impressive, expressive, and staggering all come to mind when describing this requisite V.A.
Kicking off the release is Deviu with “Shape of the Mind”. A classic, uplifting, and triumphant closer that features a heroic journey of its own. Collaborating with Pablo Goyesi, Deviu presents the second, and much heavier track, “Notion”. A punchy and bold track, with Bodzin-like Moog bass that sets up well for peak-time play. Next, Germán Case presents 2 stunning and juxtaposing originals, “Architect” and “Half Goals”, to round out this magnificent release. “Architect” is delicate and emotional piece which pays homage to civilization’s ancient past with its organic and angelic melodies and pads, while “Half Goals” is another club ready and pad forward groover.
As Always, Steyoyoke’s Quadrivium showcases the best and purist vision of what Ethereal is to the dedicated listener and this, Vol. 11, is no different. Another exemplary display of the imprint’s expressive and delicate DNA from fresh points of view.
