Steyoyoke Black finds great pleasure in finding budding talents like Aquiver. The Italian Duo makes their presence known with a cryptic, bold, and powerful 4-track EP, “Something From The Sky”.
The release sets off with the title track “Something From The Sky”. Dynamic, driving and dark, it sets a fiery tone for the EP, highlighted by its mysterious vocal in the breakdown. Its atmospheric bedrock, expressive pads, and galloping low end carry suspense into the tension stirring, equally rapid, second track. “Enjoy The Future” is similarly characterized by a rolling 16th bass, broad trance-esque breakdown pads, and a glitchy electronica arpeggio. “Quiddity”, the third installment, has a lovely vocal chop sequence and a rising pad synth that takes precedence and propels the track forward. “Duality” is the 4th and final track in the release. A constant flow of rising tension through the haunting saturated lead and hypnotic arpeggio, this track is the heaviest and most introspective.
Aquiver’s “Something From The Sky” EP is the epitome of rolling hypnotic techno. Steyoyoke Black is proud to call this duo part of its family. Be prepared for heavy kicks, galloping basslines, weightless breakdowns, and powerful episodic drops. This is a high-octane stunner.
