loyoto are the east-berlin born eva be and cle from the western part of the formerly dived city. both started their dj and producer career almost at the same time in the heart of the then developing scene, the very center of berlin, just after the wall came down. originally rooted in very different styles of music, they encountered for the first time djing together in 2011, finding common ground in more than just music - a gig, that should lead to more: they decided to combine their talents and knowledge and build a studio together. here, and during legendary back2back dj sets, they finally united their different musical backgrounds - dub/reggae and underground house music - and defined their very own sound.
its always a big moment when we welcome a new project into the watergate catalog and this time is no exception. for our next release we would like to introduce two newcomers to the label. both cle and eva be have been at the cutting edge of house music culture for well over a decade and their work as solo artists spans an esteemed list of some of the most highly regarded imprints from sonar kollektiv to poker flat, but it was only recently the two formed loyoto. after a stunning debut on marco resmanns upon you label,we were thrilled to release their follow up on watergate entitled lonely young tourist. over the course of three tracks the duo traverse an array of timeless aesthetics infected with a dub narrative they have fittingly christened starsprangled dubmosphere. from the twisted, low slung vibe on sheijk to the surging intoxication of 3 balls and the timeless fusing of classic dub and modern perspective on feel the bumpin, loyoto have constructed an exquisite ride into their sonic universe and we think you will agree. welcome to the crew loyoto!
