Seyla - David Lohlein (SK_Eleven)

Title: Seyla
Artist: David Lohlein
Label: SK_eleven
Cat Number: SK11X002
Genre: Techno

A1: Ilyane
A2: Seyla
B1: Muesca
B2: Ritmo

A functional four tracker this, and I mean that in the nicest way. The music is funk fuelled and rubberoid in places, the bounce factor being extremely high and pervasive. The tracks also strike the right balance between clarity and vagueness, there being a healthy degree of opacity within them there grooves. ‘Muesca’ is a standout for me, with its concentric, tribal steel drum peals it sounds like a squadron of flying saucers coming in to attack. Obvious nods to Mills and Ruskin make this a very useful release.
