Track by Track:
"A1 Yoji (Original Mix)": This track is about fusions of sounds, patterns and heavy bass lines. It’s a very effective track with screaming and pumping melodies. It’s perfect for a dark room invaded by some discrete strobe lights, or a sweaty after hour.
"A2 Gugela (Original Mix)": This one starts gently until these sexy, intriguing sounds and effects enter the universe of this work. It has a feminine influence like its title and some impressive beats as well as a delicate mixture of groove and technique.
"B1 Yoji (Mathias Schaffhäuser Remix)": This interpretation is offering you something different and another vision of this track. It has a sweet melody and it’s the ideal change of the darker original version, to a main floor smasher.
"C1 Ks?n (Original Mix)": These sounds are full of feelings and captivating structures. It’s a rainbow in the middle of a rainy forest of melodic patterns and discrete notes all together combined in an intense track, ideal for a warm up.
"C2 Nyaako (Original Mix)": Old school influences mixed into an effective track for the middle of your set. It has a real atmosphere and gives a different touch to this album with some bleepy sounds and a surprising break, we totally love it.
"D1 Enola (Original Mix)": This one surely has some groove in it and a sensual sound structure with some lightly jazzy influences. It’s the more house orientated track of this album and gives it a fresh touch.
"D2 Woody Man (Original Mix)": Now something darker and electronic to end this album. It has a sci-fi atmosphere and delicate breaks. It’s definitely mysterious and will really get into your brain, slowly ending with a heartbeat.
