Monojoke – Blood Ties EP [Soundteller Records]

6 min read

Continuing to forge a strong bond with Soundteller Records, Monojoke returns to the label for a new EP. 2020 saw the Polish artist appear on the Polish imprint four times, delivering two EPs and two remixes, while also showcasing his music via Another Life, Balkan Connection and Antrim's Or Two Strangers. Now following a remix of 'Spring Breeze' by Nicolas Leonelli & Luciano Rego for his first Soundteller outing of the year, Monojoke returns to the label with a four track showcase entitled 'Blood Ties'.

The aptly titled 'My Reprise' gets the EP underway with just over two and a half minutes of shape-shifting soundscape bliss. An ideal intro perhaps for the refreshing sounds of the title selection 'Blood Ties'. Once again rich in atmosphere, it's placid lines and tranquil arps marry wonderfully over top of a pacey yet organically styled groove. There's a uniquely timeless quality about those interwoven themes, one that really hits home as the icy backdrop washes away following the break.

The EP's halfway point is marked with it's second dance floor oriented piece 'Chapter XIII'. Continuing to blur the lines between progressive and organic house, Monojoke does lean towards the former here with a robust percussion section, long atmospheric refrains and quirky rhythmic lines to die for. Shifting the tempo back to the range of 'My Reprise' is the EP's closer 'My Salvation'. Sitting firmly in the organic realm this 108 bpm seven minute journey may be the release's finest moment. It's choral voices are both colourful and impassioned, gently drifting across a foundation of exotic drums and compact beats, for what ultimately results in a near perfect sunrise tune. Once known only for peak time progressive numbers, Monojoke continues to expand his portfolio with 'Blood Ties', going down as perhaps his most diverse release to date. Highly recommended.
