Artless Being – Reflection / Breath of Life [Soundteller Records]

7 min read

Deersky's Soundteller Records opens the month of March by welcoming Artless Being to the label for his debut EP. Hailing from South Africa, Artless Being is at the beginning of his production journey with just one previous release courtesy of There Is Still Hope late last year. With forthcoming music signed to 3rd Avenue and Nordic Voyage, The Durban resident now embarks on his first EP project and Soundteller debut 'Reflection / Breath of Life', alongside remixes from Mariner + Domingo and Dio S.

Continuing with the organic sounds he brought to his first release is 'Reflection'. Deep, spongy beats and nicely manicured percussion selection set a laid back yet groovy pace for warm synth phrasing and soulful vocals to work their magic. Vibrant arp fragments highlight a serene centrepiece, one where bucolic images and balmy textures converge for what should be a daytime dance floor delight. The companion piece 'Breath of Life' lands with a similar serene quality. Flow and subtlety are at a premium here with no primary elements standing out, rather a smooth organic flow with evolving atmospheres and melancholic overlays.

Soundteller stalwarts Mariner + Domingo return to the label with the lone interpretation of 'Reflection'. The American duo continue to impress following their resurgent partnership with a recent release for Nordic Voyage. Taking inspiration from the Original, Mariner and Domingo deliver a heart stealing rendition complete with emotive chord stabs and exceptional vocal remodelling which is goosebump inducing to say the least. The first act breakbeat foundation is welcome as well, something that's been mildly trending across genres the last few years, and makes the stompier second act even more impactful. A brilliant remix from Mariner + Domingo.

The release concludes with Dio S returning to the label with the lone interpretation of 'Breath of Life'. It's been almost six years since the Greek artist has appeared on the Polish imprint and he returns with a more organic approach. Warm key changing basslines and clattering percussive arrangements provide the backbone for twinkly arps, haunting vocal phrasing and wistful chord stabs to deliver a supreme mood setting piece to round out the release in style. Highly recommended.
