Hot on the heels of his techno masterpiece ‘Seven Days’ Itokim returns with a four tracker of deeply emotive techno.
"Breathe" was conceived as a project to explore the dancefloor of things. Combining a subtle blend of techno edge and spaced atmospherics. ‘Snowdrop’ is one of the standouts from a package that highlights Itokim’s talent in finding a melody, a deep cut of emotional techno. Itokim also takes inspiration from IDM and electronica, both of which are evident in ‘Prayers & Melodies’.
It is receiving some excellent feedback from the likes of Laurent Garnier, Vince Watson and Franco Cangelli as well as air time on 209radio and YLE Areena.

I’ve been playing SNOW DROP since April ’08. One of the best techno tracks of 2008. Great release for Logo’s. – Santiago Salazar (Historia y Violencia)

Thanks for sending this liking Snodrop from this package not sure if I could play it in club sets but will try and give it some play on some radio shows and mixes. – Paul Mac (Stimulus)
Prayers & melodies is a very deep and intimate track. It’s soothing to my ears. I like Come Closer a lot as wel. Some nice deep tech house, good stuff for afterhours. Nice release all in all! Keep it up! – Franco Cangelli (Mowar)
Hey, another great release on Logos. Pure moment of groove and deepness !!! "Anubis" is the track for me, like his deep melody and evolution. Excellent, Itokim !!!! – Erell Ranson (MySelf Recordings)
"Anubis" hits hard with a rolling rhythm punch before an ascending synth line hits vertiginous heights. "Come Closer" is the clear winner for me though: Reminiscent of classic Detroit techno minimalism but expands its reaches into warmer climes with glowing synth pulses. Itokim is adept at taking his tracks from a starting point and ending in someplace altogether unexpected. – Kuri Kondrak
