Coyu dedicates his latest live mix to the late Aaron Carl, as he plays live at Ibiza Global Radio….
Coyu has released another live recording of him playing on Ibiza Global Radio and the start of the mix sets the scene perfectly for his dedication to the dearly departed Aaron Carl.
The mix is a grand composition of real emotive feeling and a sincere mix by Coyu, saying that for his last set of the season on Global Radio he wanted to play something brighter and happier. But as he received the news of Aaron Carl passing away shortly before his set, he changed his mind and decided to play something more sincere, creating a mix that’s slightly sad but reflects something much deeper.
Coyu’s set is a real blend of deep tech with subtle shades of funkiness and ambience thrown into the mix.
He starts off with a slightly laid back approach which seems to linger just enough from the edge for you to feel the presence of something to come but whilst still absorbing the up-beat skip as he slowly works you closer. He almost teases you with some true house flavours by building things a little and then bringing them back to a steady medium again, to only tease you yet again with a subtle build.
About 14 minutes of this behaviour and he’s switched things onto a different path with a monotonous low drive dub-tech route with atmospherical touches which mildly brighten and set a real mood in the air. It almost makes you want to voluntarily stand on the edge and just feel that wind blowing under your arms when very swiftly enters a distinctive electro arpeggio bass which gently pulls you away leaving your body swinging in no-man’s land.
At which point Coyu plays on the ambience of the mood and gently touches to a Sasha style aura allowing the mix to then just flow into a natural drift. He lightens the mood with a real uplifting track towards the end, which then switches to a real soulful deep dub piece before ending things on a quirky broken beat finale. The ending is maybe a little off-key with the last two tracks but apart from the last 6 minutes this mix is a great piece of work which will send you on a bit of a trip.
