Andy King – Poseidon [Soundteller Records]

7 min read

Presenting one of their biggest releases of the year, Soundteller Records welcomes Andy King back to the label for a new single 'Poseidon'. February of 2020 marked the UK artist's label debut with the well received 'Hemisphere'. The track proved to be a highlight in a year that also saw releases for ICONYC, Stripped Recordings and Symmetric Records. Now presenting his first project of the new year, Andy makes a welcome return to Soundteller with 'Poseidon' alongside remixes from Lemon8 and Subandrio.

Continuing from where 'Hemisphere' left off Andy crafts another sizeable progressive house construction. Big and muscular throughout the low end, it's a lighter top end which balances everything quite nicely. Playful arps and glowing atmospheres carry the narrative into a memorable break highlighted by spoken word vocals, emotive swells and charming pads. A quick and tasteful build keeps things on the right side of cool, ultimately spearheading a key changing finale.

Returning to the label and providing the first remix is progressive legend Harry Lemon aka Lemon8. The Dutch artist was at the forefront of the genre’s initial movement with timeless classic’s such as ‘New York, New York’ released c/o John Digweed’s Bedrock Records in 2002. Now almost twenty years on and Lemon8 continues to delight the genre's die-hard fans. November of 2019 marked Harry's Soundteller debut with the 'A Better Place' single. Now returning to the label for his first remix, Lemon8 dials in a killer rendition of 'Poseidon'. The Dutch artist's detailed drum work immediately grabs your attention, adding copious amounts of bounce and swing to what is a gargantuan groove. Powerful stabs in conjunction with stellar effects and emerging atmospheres then set the stage for a second act bridge featuring the vocal narrative. Clocking in at a mammoth ten minutes in length it's an expansive break which sits at the heart of the piece, flowing through cascading arps and sweeping effects before phasing noise ushers in a powerful drop and commanding finish.

Rounding out this A-list remixer cast is Subandrio who returns to the label for his eighth appearance. As one of his country’s most highly regarded progressive music talents, the Sri Lankan artist has long been a favourite of genre tastemakers Hernan Cattaneo and Nick Warren. Releases on Cid Inc’s Replug Records, Beat Boutique, Balance Music and Sudbeat sit prominently in his discography, as he continues to sit amongst the movement’s elite. Soundteller has been a comfortable home for Subandrio since making his label debut in 2016 and now following a remix for Proton Music to begin the year, the Colombo resident lands back on the Polish imprint with a brilliant remix of 'Poseidon'. The dark and dramatic nature which often resonates from Subandrio's music marries well with the parts from 'Poseidon'. From it's rugged, machine gun style groove to a stunning effects narrative there is a lot to like. It's methodical build feels effortless with melodic motifs gently drifting below the surface leading into the break, only to become more fully realized before getting washed away in a rush of beats and percussion. Stunning music as usual from Subandrio, which caps off one of Soundteller's most star studded releases of the year. Highly recommended.
