I✇KA – Yeah
We had a rock-based track from Ioka the other day, despite him identifying himself as a dnb artist. Here’s another track. And this isn’t dnb either. It’s an ambient minimal trance track. Free download.
Ioka is from Dresden and studies at a music university. Thought we’d subject him to Ted’s Top Ten quiz:
1. Weatherall or Oakenfold? Weatherall
2. Real Instruments or Synthesisers? Real instruments
3. Dance or rock? Dance!
4. Beer or Coffee? Beer! what is coffee?
5. Carl Maria von Weber or Richard Wagner? I study at the Carl Maria von Weber University so its easy
6. Death or Disco? Disco
7. Ossie or Wessie? I’m a Ossie [from East Germany]
8. Zappa or The Doors? Zappa
9. 808 or 303? 808
10. Drum & Bass or Dubstep? DnB 4 Ever
And so to the track – Yeah. A slightly undescriptive title. But there are samples which indeed say “Yeah”. Starts a bit slowly this one. Needs a bit of time to warm up. At the minute mark, when you’re starting to lose interest, the synths move into view. All goes a bit dreamy. Ioka describes the track as minimal. It’s more than that. It has definite ambient trance feelings. Perhaps a bit like Michael Woods’ remix of Cafe Del Mar. It’s not exactly going to have you throwing shapes but definite home listening.
