The new year welcomes Abayomi’s third EP.
Abayomi’s sound is influenced by deep, raw Detroit techno, dirty Chicago House and edgy UK Bass. His driving, hypnotic productions and DJ sets prove him a forward-thinking figure of the techno scene. This unique rising talent, a Nigerian / London born DJ and producer is a Reclaim Your City (Berlin) resident. Abayomi’s label, like his DJ sets, unites elements of Techno and House with a strong London attitude. Launched in 2015 as a vehicle for his first issue, ‘You Sleep, They Live!’ EP sold out and received club and podcast play from the likes of Ellen Allien, Ben Sims and Moderat who played it in their BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix.
‘Chiron EP’ opens with the title track’s driving analogue rhythms, waves of modulating chords and aggressive hi-hats; simple yet powerful. ‘Rebirth’, which was previously only available on vinyl gets a digital release. This track shakes the foundation of your speakers with a stripped down percussive onslaught. ‘Centaurus’ rounds off the EP, with an homage to Detroit Techno and Greek mythology. A trip from the past, to the future via the stars.
