Andrew Bayer makes Anjunabeats outing with new EP, ‘Only You Boy/Eight to Sixteen’
From the opening seconds of “Only You Boy,” the first of the two cuts that comprise Andrew Bayer‘s latest EP, it’s clear that Bayer’s latest Anjunabeats showing is preeminently poised for club play. The introductory cut is defined by an energetic beat that pulsates with a metallic grit. The edgy animation within “Only You Boy” eventually gives way, as a sonic plot twist of sorts unfolds. Bayer slows the track at the midway point, only to tone the tune with a melodic break.
In contrast to the rapidity with which “Only You Boy” develops, “Eight to Sixteen” builds at a slower pace. The latter mounts, affecting an atmospheric euphoria as it does so. The culmination of the production’s climb is an effervescent accent that palpitates at a danceable tempo. Only You Boy/Eight to Sixteen precedes Bayer’s forthcoming appearance at Above & Beyond‘s Group Therapy Weekender, slated for July 27-28 at the Gorge Amphitheater in George, Washington.
