"Lonely Young Tourist EP" by LoYoTo (Eva Be & Cle) is out now on Watergate Records. This is what the guys from Watergate Records think...
LoYoTo – three syllables fused to a name that sounds strangely familiar but yet is a project on the rise and making its full on debut on Upon.You Records these days although the formative and creative duo behind this name is longtime established amongst connaisseurs of electronic music, both for individual solo works as well as for praised cooperations and conjunctional efforts with other artists.
So who is LoYoTo? It’s the brainchild of both Berlin-based artists DJ Cle, ambassador of finest house music since the late 80s, part of the legendary Märtini Brös and backed by a string of solo releases and remixes on labels like Poker Flat Recordings or Local Talk, and Eva Be, originally rooted in dub and reggae, recording artist for Best Works and Best Seven as well as remixer for Sonar Kollektiv, Pulver Records and many others.
Together they bring in their experiences from both sides of the spectrum, exploring dubby electronic spheres – and the miraculous beauty of the universe – in their corporate studio space. This shared experience shows in the title track „Looking At The Starz“, a deep and organic tech house affair touched by floating dub, featuring most beautiful bass motifs, levitating drones, reverberant chords and dream-inducing space vocals alongside a tender, slightly uplifting melody that makes dancers and groovers grin like a Cheshire cat.
