YOKTO is back on Connaisseur, taking us on a geological excursion this time. „The Theory of Ore“ attempts to musically explain how various types of mineral deposits develop in the earth’s crust. As already with his debut release on Connaisseur „Chiron Signs“, the Saarland-based artist takes us on a deep journey, while managing to keep a perfect balance between an absolutely modern and a timeless style approach.

With its shimmering and powerful synths and the demanding cow bells, the release opener „Gabbro“ captures your imagination right from the start. Combined with the rock-solid electro inspired drumming, this tune is a state-of-the-art production.

„Obsidian“ is a rather timeless, almost meditative deep house variation. Trippy sound sprinkles buzz around the stoic but hypnotizing groove, until it gets wrapped up in a warm blanket of classy chords. Afterparty calling!

„Bims“, the German word for Pumice, is a real lightweight. An airy but intense ambient track where YOKTO probes the field of tension between meditative synths and deep basses.
