Sol Asylum is back with their third release, this time around a various artist EP featuring tracks from friends and family members Dana Ruh, Miss Jools, and Patrice Meiner. This solid collection delivers a heavily swung slice of style and class without ever losing its straightforward dance floor attitude.
The EP gets a proper start with Dana Ruh’s “Overcome”. A modern take on forward thinking house music with a cleverly swinging groove, pulsating filtered synths and provocatively soul stirring voices. All the rhythmical elements mold and evolve the track into a vibrant and energetic gem.
Next stop on our journey brings us to Patrice Meiner’s “Uva” a broken beat dedication to his mother with fiery snares, atmospherically floating ghost like synths, intricately pitched hi-hat patterns and a tightly woven groove that is the signature sound we’ve all come to know and love from him.Last but certainly not least is our trusted resident of Sol Asylum Miss Jools with “Calamity Cloud”. Mysterious voices speak to us with an infinite realm of hovering synths, a playful but complex groove, driving hats, then a finely crafted layout brings us to alternate states between light and darkness creating a perfect balance that reminds us of a cloudy Berlin day.
