The enigmatic Hyenah steps into the spotlight once again for its third Freerange release, following hot on the heels of their Objektivity debut which is still causing major waves worldwide. With a distinctive sound which melds Afro-influenced rhythms with European deep and minimal house sensibilities, Hyenah has won many fans from across the dance spectrum and can be tracked down to a certain well known club in Berlin which hosts its regular party known as Rise.
The Idea unleashes a powerful blast of percussion-heavy beats which form
the perfect foundation for SA’s Lazarusman to lay down his distinctive
spoken-word vocal. The track builds steadily, the intensity increasing
throughout as extra stabs and layers of strings soar above the pulsing
synths and throbbing sub bass.
Up next we have a very special remix from the Innervisions and Drumpoet
regulars Frankey & Sandrino. The German duo are seemingly unstoppable
right now, going from strength to strength and continuing to impress with
every release. Their remix of The Idea is arguably their best work to
date, highlighting a level of production that many can only dream of in
the process have created an incredible floor-filling remix which is
already getting early spins from Dixon, Ame and Mano Le Tough.
Finally, we have a second original in the form of Rise which demonstrates
again why Hyenah is such an exciting and unique producer. Minimal in the
extreme, yet punchy, dynamic and highly energized, this track completely
encapsulates the proverbial prowling beast as it moves stealth-like
through the African savannas, hunting for it’s next kill.
