2014 saw Steyoyoke Recordings put the finishing touches to their artist roster and the label is now experiencing an ongoing creative continuum, bringing Steyoyoke to its current state of musical solidarity. ‘Family Affair Vol.04’ is a testament to this, as it provokes new inspiring ways for the artists to inspire and influence each other. Split across two separate releases, Part 1 and Part 2, “Family Affair Vol.04’ comprises of 9 remixes, which sees all the Steyoyoke artists adding their own personal flavours to some of 2014’s biggest tracks.
Aki Bergen extends his skills to bring you the first track of Part 2. He remixes Soul Button’s ‘Swift Minds’ and delivers a rigorous yet minimal interpretation, that is unwavering and carries a strong hypnotic undertone.
Track 2 is from Animal Picnic, with their remix of Ran Salman’s ‘Fractured Memories’. The duo embellished it with stunning key changes and a haunting breakdown, indulging you with great passion and warmth.
MPathy puts his spin on things with a remix of Animal Picnic & Aaryon’s ‘Kymera’. He keeps things simple and stripes it back, emphasising the tracks more percussive components. MPathy also elects to remove the vocals present in the original.
The final track is from BLANCAh, with her rendition of Aki Bergen’s ‘Serpentine’. Sticking to the originals essence and vibe, this remix is infatuating and intoxicating. It amplifies elegant beauty and coaxes plenty of good vibes.
