Space is the Place has a soft side, and it belongs to Kayloo. We introduced his silky tech-house touch to the world on our Expose Yourself compilation with the opening track La Voie. We loved La Voie so much that we decided to give it a dedicated release, accompanied by two new originals from Kayloo.
The suave Frenchman has been making music since he was 17 with one single synth and a copy of Reason. But it wasn't until he crossed the pond to pursue music in NYC that Kayloo took his beatmaking visions from hobby to hustle.
Creating music that literally moves deep down emotions and bodies on the dancefloor, Kayloo's first EP on Space is the Place represents the feelings that a lot of techno intentionally avoids. The title track is followed up by the darker, punchier Ring the Bells a track that finds balance between the New York sounds of Mister Saturday Night and L.I.E.S., before leaping into the throbbing bassline and rolling kickdrums of Astrolab La Voie concludes with a remix from Space is the Place Bossman, Astrolith, who offers his own take on the title track. The remix takes a glitchy turn into dramatic builds that enhance the already emotion-soaked La Voie.
Kaylooâ's work represents a whole new sound for the label, and one that's undeniably his own. Call it French. Call it bedroom techno. We like to call those smooth, gorgeous synthlines, so-fucking-Kayloo.
