Coyu – Southern Instinct
At last the Suara boss is stepping out on his own label with a debut solo EP. Reports are that it has already picked up plenty of plays from top tech house DJs everywhere and once you hear ‘Belize’ you’ll know why – it’s going to be one of the Ibiza summer anthems basically. The track has shuffling drums with plenty of little sonic details and lush melodies to come over like a South American tech house tune ripe for the dancefloor. It’s humid and sweaty with plenty of human voices and weird what sound like monkey noises all nestled in the grooves.
‘Aruba’ is the next track and is just as well produced. It has many percussive lines weaving in and out of warm, diving drums and basslines. Plenty of extra added found sounds liek crowd noises add some charm and jazzy keys bring a sunshine element toward the end. It’s one of those great feel good tracks you want to hear again and again and closer ‘Santiaguito’ goes deeper into techno territory. Taught basslines and free roaming synths canter along, constantly melting into one another and working hard at hypnotising you and melting your mind. A stunning debut Ep from the label boss, hopefully there will be plenty more to follow.
