“After a first surprising and successful release by I’m Fine & Antonio Olivieri, the young berliner label that is Steyoyoke is now back with another EP from a newcomer who goes under the mysterious name of Dahu.
« Deep In The Woods » is the perfect introduction to Dahu’s enigmatic world. The song is dark, cold, and perfectly balanced and mastered from A to Z. We love the delightful, Lynchesque bells’ sounds reverbing in the forest, the falling Hi-Hats effects immersing you into your best nightmares
 and that strong, thick and flat bassline vibrating across the floor.”

“Sticking with the very deep vibes, here’s the second offering from new Berlin-based label Steyoyoke.
It’s a simple two-track affair. Deep In The Woods itself is a melodic, melancholic and at times slightly menacing meander through those murky shadowlands where deep house and deep techno collide and fuse into interesting new shapes. On the B, those deep and dubby techno influences come a little more to the fore on Falun, with some tripped-out sax insertions in there as well, making this an EP that’s “4 da headz” for sure. But then that’s you, is it not? If so, you should love this!”

Great deep house tracks! Really like both.
Coverage: Review:
“I was really happy with this mix. This is for the groovers. This is for the old school house heads that still like to get down on the dancefloor. It is a modern sound of House with elements of house music past, present and future. This will make your booty shake.”

“Steyoyoke has let little time pass since releasing their debut Ep If I Were Music; the Berlin label, now gearing up for their second release has sent over a promotional copy of the forthcoming release (with Dahu) called Deep in the Woods. Atmospheric in nature with a heavily bass-driven sound, the title production is an eerie, deep house track with a markedly subtle drop reminiscent, as the title suggests, of walking through the dark woods at night.
Falun, the B-side track emerges readily from the dark, drooling woods, lead by the occasional horn stab and gentle piano accompaniment in a warm summery manner.”

Stylistberlin (Germany)
Coverage: Feedback + Review – Coverage
“Deep In the Woods’ is a haunting trail of eerie synth pads and echoing hi-hats culminating subtly into a drop that combines a drooling bass line with infrequent vocal snippets. Craftily blending a shuffling percussion with a resonating lead, Dahu creates a hypnotic journey reminiscent of rustling leaves and a walk through a dark wood at night.
The B-side ‘Falun’ is more upbeat in nature and takes the atmosphere in a new exciting direction but still retains a smokey feel throughout. Introduced with intangible vocal loops and the occasional horn stab, the song sets the mood for a more summery endeavour. In the breakdown a lazy piano arrangement provides the lethargic atmosphere where an echoey horn emerges from beneath.”

“Wir hatten bereits ĂŒber das erste Release des Labels Steyoyoke berichtet, auch die Nummer 002 Dahu – Deep In The Woods versetzt uns in Ă€hnliche Begeisterung.‹Deepe Sounds eingehĂŒllt in House, absolut geeignet fĂŒr die TanzflĂ€che aber auch genauso gut fĂŒr den MP3-Player Einsatz unterwegs. Es macht Spaß wie liebevoll hier arrangiert wurde und die ganze AtmosphĂ€re stimmt.‹Liebling ist Deep In The Woods, weil dieser keine Kompromisse eingeht, den Hörer sofort mit seinem Subbass, Kicks und den Snares voran treibt, wĂ€hrend man in eine AtmosphĂ€re aus warmen Tönen gezogen wird.‹Wer es etwas weicher mag wird an Falun seine Freude haben, vergleichbar mit einem Sonnenuntergang im Hochsommer zaubert er ein LĂ€cheln ins Gesicht.”

“Marco from German label Steyoyoke sent along their upcoming second release from Dahu. Out April 13th, coincidentally the same date as our next Unofficial (Friday.) event at Annexe. The title track off the EP features an incredibly deep bass line, something we absolutely die for, and the second track Falun is a lighter more upbeat track that still maintains the overall 4am sounding vibe we so love at
He also sent along a free download of the latest mix released through the label, in support of their debut release, If I Were Music EP by I’m Fine & Antonio Olivieri. It’s just over an hour of wonderful deep house vibes and features the track Your Ghost of their premiere release.”

“Steyoyoke’s second release truly shows the label’s love for eloquent and surprising house music. The label’s second release by their own Dahu comes in strong with an atmospheric EP called ‘Deep in the Woods’; two crisply produced tracks likely to arouse the senses.
Berlin-based Dahu describes his music as ‘atmospheric house with delicate melodies and bass-driven sound,’ and with this, his first release on Steyoyoke, he certainly stays true to his word. Check it!”

“Steyoyoke’s second release ‘Deep In The Woods’ by Dahu, is a perfect display of the labels love for eloquent and spontaneous House Music. Their music has a definite class that deserves its own coat of arms. The art work is always fascinating, bold and unique with its signature splash of ocean blue to ensure your senses are consistently pampered!
‘Deep In the Woods‘ is a haunting trail of eerie synth pads and echoing hi-hats culminating subtly into a drop that combines a drooling bass line with infrequent vocal snippets.  Craftily blending a shuffling percussion with a resonating lead, Dahu creates a hypnotic journey reminiscent of rustling leaves and a walk through a dark wood at night.

“Das in Berlin beheimatete Label Steyoyoke prĂ€sentiert ihr zweites eigenes Release. Nach dem Erfolg des ersten Release’s von I’m Fine & Antonio Olivieri “IF I WERE MUSIC” das ĂŒber das Label veröffentlicht wurde, erscheint nun knapp zwei Monate spĂ€ter das nĂ€chste. In der neusten Platte “Dahu – Deep in the Woods” spiegelt sich, wie im Label selbst, eine Liebe fĂŒr Eloquenz und ĂŒberraschende House-Musik-Elemente, die atmosphĂ€rische EP erscheint mit zwei knusprig, detailverliebten und schön produzierten Tracks.”

“The second release on Steyoyoke, Dahu’s ‘Deep in the Woods’ EP is two crisp and subtely produced deep house/tech inspired tracks that will no doubt sit comfortably in any set of a more descerning dancefloor.
Impressive and solid, the EP is a worthy purchase and Steyoyoke will definitely be a label to watch. If they continue on this curve they will have a mighty back catalogue.”
