The aptly titled 'Daydream' begins with a cluster of melodies accented with sparse yet poignant piano's. As the swirling harmonics rise the kick eventually drops with a hopeful pad pulling in more emotive energy. Dynamic claps and percussive waves bring further drive while a timeless band of chord changes complement the glowing arps perfectly. Void of any major break, it's steady, methodical build just adds to its heartwarming moods and ultimately makes for an exhilarating seven minute journey.
The companion piece 'Nostalgia' comes with similar design profiles and a lovely melodic storyboard. Again aptly titled, the piece is a nod to the classic sounds from the late nineties. Comparison's to Humate's 'Love Stimulation' could certainly be made and the emotive energy is perhaps just as poignant, with its wistful qualities casting a reflective tone. A beautiful piece of music from DJ Yoko and a fitting conclusion to his Suffused Music debut. Don't miss it.
