Berlin-based Dahu describes his music as \'atmospheric house with delicate melodies and bass-driven sound,\' and with this, his first release on Steyoyoke, he certainly stays true to his word.
\'Deep In the Woods\' is a haunting trail of eerie synth pads and echoing hi-hats culminating subtly into a drop that combines a drooling bass line with infrequent vocal snippets.
Craftily blending a shuffling percussion with a resonating lead, Dahu creates a hypnotic journey reminiscent of rustling leaves and a walk through a dark wood at night.
The B-side \'Falun\' is more upbeat in nature and takes the atmosphere in a new exciting direction but still retains a smokey feel throughout. Introduced with intangible vocal loops and the occasional horn stab, the song sets the mood for a more summery endeavour. In the breakdown a lazy piano arrangement provides the lethargic atmosphere where an echoey horn emerges from beneath.
An exciting and atmospheric EP from Dahu provides a solid second release for Berlin\'s newest imprint: Steyoyoke Records.
\'Deep in the Woods\' EP will see two releases, first on vinyl from 16th March and then digitally to follow.
