Steyoyoke‘s second release truly shows the label’s love for eloquent and surprising house music.
The label’s second release by their own Dahu comes in strong with an atmospheric EP called ‘Deep in the Woods‘; two crisply produced tracks likely to arouse the senses.
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.

Really strong grooves here from Dahu on both cuts; each has a wealth of atmosphere & also enough punch for the dancefloor. I think “Falun” just shades it for me, but both tracks are wicked.
