Rony Seikaly is no stranger to Yoshitoshi, having released his upbeat single “Holdin’ On” and its techy B-side “Faces” on the imprint last year. What “Sword” confirms, however, is both Seikaly’s music production acumen and his well-deserved place in today’s house music scene.
This two-track EP, exclusively premiered through 6AM, has everything it should have. The bass is decidedly heavy, yet both tracks remain relentlessly melodic and easy on the ear. “The Sword” is tribal in nature and packed-full of groove, a perfect track for the early hours of the morning. “All Of A Sudden” completes the EP perfectly, following suit with interlaced chords and a heavyweight kick over elegant percussions.
Make no mistake, Seikaly’s strength and experience as both a producer and DJ have been paying off, as his recent billing alongside Music On chief Marco Carola prove. “Sword” is the ultimate testament to that, delivering the ideal dance floor selection for any DJ looking to get a crowd dancing into sunrise.
