Spanish producer Daniel Kyo debuting on Days Of Being Wild, has just released “Runnin” an EP of two originals “Running” and “Destination Unknown” with Headman Robi Insinna and Headman completing the package with two remixes of the title track.
Having released past productions on Poker Flat, Lost My Dog, Drumpoet Community and Lovemonk Daniel Kyo is a name that has graced the underground scene with a string of releases. Title track Running a hypnotic track infused with strong melodic hooks and retro 80’s sounds develops slowly with a dark drony sound opening up as the rhythm track unfolds over muffled radio voices. Reinforced with the use of old drum machines, analog synths sounds and new wave style vocal lines, it developes into a grand and intimate track.
Destination Unknown the 2nd track is more electro and slightly more aggressive in its sonics while retaining a strong atmospheric vibe. Creating a sense of intimacy over the driving synths Daniel’s vocals are featured in whispers over the soft vintage synth pads, while the production creates movement throughout the track breaks into an almost italo section, uplifting and dramatic.
Headman Robi Insinna tackles title track Running and declines it over two versions, an epic 10 min take and shorter 6 min version. Where the original was emphasizing atmosphere and mood, Headman’s remix boosts the club aspect of the piece, alternating between a straight driving bassline and a bouncier one on the break, making it more New Order than Depeche Mode.
