Never Know EP by Kyodai

  • pfr133
Release date

Here comes more pure heat from the Poker Flat stable.  This time it’s the turn of Kyodai, with a four-track digital release of pulsating, riveting house music.  Not much is known about the shadowy Kyodai, other than it translates as ‘brothers’ from Japanese, and the pair have already released well received tracks on labels such as Compost, OM records, Appetizers, Localtalk, and Freerange. It’s no surprise Steve Bug picked them up for his Poker Flat imprint – PFR133 is packed full of searing, jacking grooves, completely assured in their ability to work any dancefloor.

 The lead track is ‘Never Know’ – driving and deep in all the right ways, and infused with subtle power from a production team that seems to be growing with every release. The ‘Future Funk’ remix comes courtesy of Simon Garcia  ­– the Spaniard is no stranger to Poker Flat and here drops a heavy, tech-based workout of ‘Never Know’. ‘Always’ keeps the pace up with a bubbling, lean groove that draws some inspiration from raw Chicago house, and even elements of synth-heavy italo. Rounding off this white-hot release is ‘Hate Me Now’, combining a soulful flavour with evolving, Detroit-referencing pads and a fully devastating bassline.
