"Who takes - fills the palms, who gives - fills the heart." Lao Tzu
Shanti Radio's particular brand of dancefloor-focused goodness has long been hard to pin down, with its roster of artists offering up the kind of evocative, atmospheric and ultra-melodious fare that brilliantly blurs the boundaries between tech-house, deep house and progressive house. You'll find more of the same on this fine debut EP by new signing Soul of Void. A-side "Viha" sets the tone, with hazy male vocals, exotic south eastern European instrumentation and stirring stings rising above a tactile tech-house groove. Title track "Samsara" explores similar sonic territory, albeit with chunkier grooves and more twinkling piano motifs, while "Ederlezei" is the kind of bright, breezy and sun-kissed concoction that would sound great blasting from speakers at a humid afternoon dance.
