As officially premiered on Pete Tong’s prime-time Essential Selection radio show, Size Records ringmaster Steve Angello returns to make a mark of quality with the more formal follow-up to ‘KNAS’. Seven months in the waiting, the final version of the so called 2012 edit ‘Yeah’ will be released September 29 and is set to make up Angello’s ninth solo release on his longstanding Size imprint.
But in thickening the production values of this highly anticipated return, our Mafioso man fuses subtle guitar-driven chords and skittish leads to launch an onslaught of steady beats, anthemic synth-work and precise rhythmic play to form one of his strongest solo outings to date. While the Swedish House Mafia continue to save the world with doses of heartfelt yet chart worthy club fuel, it is reassuring to see Angello return to the limelight with a promising injection of substantial club candy amid a universal explosion of fame and fortune for both himself and his craft.
The release of ‘Yeah’ has been pushed back to October 5th.
Update (8/9): Official preview now available.
