Strength in unity is what is shown here by the Steyeyoke crew, as they follow up the success of Family Affair
Vol.1 with another bundle of tracks that warrant their passion for making top notch house music. Family Affair Vol.2 features 7 remixes from the Steyoyoke artists on some of the labels most popular originals to have been released over the last few months.
The first remix pairs two of the labels most accomplished artists together. Dahu leaves Soul Buttonʼs enigmatic ʻCome To Meʼ hypnotised by a powerful bassline. Teasing hi-hats and charged synth work that sways from left to right starts the Steyoyoke Family Affair show with a bang.
Soul Button adds purpose and drive to Florian Rietzeʼs downtempo treasure ʻTreibholzʼ. A delicately balanced original keeps its subtle undertones of desolation, but finds meaning with a progressive and ever giving groove. Haunting vocals by BLANCAh are introduced to add to the texture.
Rising with grace and ease, ʻNeeding Youʼ is shot high into the stratosphere by Sasch. A rousing remix that is full to the brim with heart and emotion, sees tidy synth work washing over an alluring analog groove as persistent vocal stabs echo sentiment.
Sasch follows up again with another endearing remix, this time at the hands MPathyʼs ʻSerenaʼ. Using playful percussion samples that frivolously dashes between a rolling 4/4 beat, Sasch builds this remix into a track that puts the heat onto any dancefloor.
An eerie remix of Saschʼs ʻHearts & Mindsʼ comes courtesy of MPathy. A persistent beat is locked down and provoked by rushing synths that swarm around a melting pot of eccentric wind instrument sounds.
Florian Rietze contrasts the reflective and dreamy nature of ʻThe Keepersʼ with a heavy bassline and sharpened off-beat cymbals to shape a direction of intent. Florian Rietze produces an accomplished remix on one of Steyoyokeʼs most successful releases.
Soul Button whips up a fierce remix of ʻDynamoʼ, as he sets alight this subdued love affair. A strong kick drum accompanied by rising and falling synth work helps move the track with urgency as it builds through the phases.
