REVIEW: Kyson - A Book Of Flying out on Anjunadeep

Three records taken from Jian Kellet Liew a.k.a Kyson’s internationally acclaimed 2016 album ‘A Book Of Flying’; ‘A Song About The Future’, ‘Flightless’, and ‘You’ receive three fresh reworks, marking the Anjunadeep debut of the Australian born, Berlin based vocalist and producer. First up ‘A Song About The Future’, the original, a stunning contemplative vocal number from the LP, gets a textured underground rework from fellow Berliner and Kompakt affiliate, Dave DK, who returns to Anjunadeep following his memorable 2014 remix of Vincenzo. Next, Anjuna mainstay Jody Wisternoff and label boss James Grant put their distinctive deep house touch on ‘Flightless’; a familiar moment from the pair’s recent iTunes Dance #1 album ‘Anjunadeep 08’. Another Berliner, Ryan Davis rounds off the package following on from his impressive ‘From Within’ EP on Anjunadeep last year. Davis warps the delicate original into a dark and brooding electronic cut.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Kyson is coming on Anjunadeep with 3 incredible electronic deep house remixes from top artists. A Song About The Future is transformed by Dave K into a smooth melodic cinematic mysterious deep electronic house beauty that manage to attract your attention and make you feel the floating rhythm and relaxing groove deep in your bones. The vocals are spacious to say the least. Flightless is remixed by Jody Wisternoff & James Grant so you can expect brilliant long teasing intro followed by tribalish grooves, xylophone melodies and soulful touching soul catching vocals. Hypnotic and inspiring from start to finish. Last You is remixed equally brilliant by Ryan Davis who starts with long abstract intro with leftfield touches and superb vocals. Rolling grooves, deep basslines, haunting atmosphere, cinematic strings and experimentation that leads our listening pleasure to new highs. Quality that amaze your ears. #PureGold Love IT [/content]
