Browncoat Collaborates With Soul Button On Techno Single 'Laniakea'
2 August 2021
Indian electronic act Nawed Khan aka Browncoat has been increasing his roster of labels supporting his music, the latest of which is Berlin's Steyoyoke whose label-head Soul Button joins hand with Khan on the single 'Laniakea'.
The track starts as an offering of minor techno, letting the hypnotic exchange of panned hi-hat parts over a four-on-the-floor kick drum do the work, and wanders only a little away as short emotive motifs are introduced and repeated gradually to turn the track into a more layered production. As percussive elements resound like distant thunder away from the focus of danceable rhythms and arpeggios, 'Laniakea' makes a strong effort at taking the mood of the engrossed dancer to darker sonic realms.
