KYOTTO – White Lights [Soundteller Records]

5 min read

The latest release from Deersky's Soundteller Records welcomes KYOTTO to the label for his debut EP. The Sri Lankan artist first appeared on the progressive music scene in 2017 with releases on Clinique Recordings, Hot Cue Music and Zephyr Music. The following two years yielded similar successes with a string of releases for Polyptych. 2020 has seen KYOTTO contribute to the the Shagara Records 'Stelliferous' compilation in addition to an EP for Nikko'Z's Dopamine White. Now landing on Soundteller Records for the first time, KYOTTO presents his 'White Lights' EP.

Continuing to gain fans with his progressive sounds, it is the title track ‘White Lights’ which leads the release off. Anchored by a tough yet warm kick, its rhythmic core rises quickly, with layers of detailed percussion and lively rhythms filling in the framework. Placid atmospheres bring hopeful qualities while sweeping effects add an old school progressive vibe. Relying heavily on rhythm and groove, it’s tracky nature sucks you in across the first act, perfectly setting up an emotional break which spearheads a heavenly finale.

The EP’s midway point finds KYOTTO exploring more heady percussive grooves with ‘Until We Meet Again’. Its chunky foundation is rugged and well shaped, characterized by rippling contours and rolling undulation. Buoyant and powerful, it provides the perfect framework for waves of percussion, vocal gates and quirky effects to steal the air. The narrative shifts into emotive territory as the breakdown smoothly moves through tranquil overlays and gorgeous tonal themes, before smoothly segueing into a groovy final movement.

Rounding out the release are the smooth, uplifting vibes of ‘Nights in Santorini’. Punchy beats, chugging basslines and rolling percussion unite for a groovy rhythmic core. Rising atmospheres and emotive chord changes then advance the narrative, elevating mood with each successive loop, before symphonic themes and a reflective break seal it's emotive appeal. It caps off a gorgeous EP from KYOTTO, making for a brilliant Soundteller debut and adding to Sri Lanka's growing list of progressive music talents. Highly recommended.
