Storming tribal / tech-house business here from the Satya label. Via "Just Love", YokoO & Bobi Stevkovski have concocted a trusting, powerful late night tech-house epic - with a cinematic and transportive arrangement that should have listeners fully engrossed in its unraveling story. "Who Are You" is a wigged-out and wriggly deep terrace number, perfect for a blacked-out DC-10 or star-lit Adriatic beach club. It's also got that sleek, serpentine aesthetic that DJs like Craig Richards or Jane Fitz like to weave into their longform sets. Mega.
Side B sees remixes by two Romanian producers: Arapu and Nu Zau. The former sees propulsive, kinetic rhythms interplay with staccato arps and punctuated b-line - tech house brilliance in a similar vein to Ted Amber and the Botanical Minds output.

Impeccably crafted, tribal-tech-house that takes me right back to the golden days of Sankeys Soap. A sound that never seems to leave the terraces of Ibiza.
