8Kays has continuously followed her inner call for hunting new sound landscapes since her music career turned into the “8Kays” chapter. Always inclined by her vision to pursue, she has released a catalogue of amazing records on the likes of Renaissance, Oliver Koletzki’s Stil Vor Talent, Yotto’s Odd One Out label, as well as great remixes for Berlin-based Booka Shade and Joplyn.

Following her huge Eleatics release alongside Tone of Arc back in 2019 with ‘Dance Alone’ – which dropped alongside a brace of stellar remixes from Alex Niggemann and Olivier Giacomotto – the emphatic Ukrainian producer now makes her eagerly awaited return to the long-standing with her four-part package, Respect Me / Young Souls EP.

‘Respect Me’ is the title track of this release. It is recorded with Lazarusman: the man of a word, the warrior of a poem. Lazarus is an artist who always brings importance to his works. There is always sense of feeling and message in his words. ‘Respect Me’ is a protest; it’s a manifestation where Lazarusman is explaining his meaning of respect, so you just should listen to it. 8Kays’ sound design is super detailed in this work: stompy and energetic basslines are a great fit for all the melodic and extra-diverse elements of the track.

Up first on remix duties, French producer Rodriguez Jr. jumps on ‘Respect Me’ with his unique vision. Low electrified sounds with the long-sweeping background alongside the melodic enveloping plus rare and targeted dub-chords create a special remix, which we are very proud to have.

‘Young Souls’ is the next track of this huge four-part release. Its hammering mood is recreated with the complex pressure-based bassline and retro synthesizer sounding guitar-like. Additionally, there is Aquarius Heaven on a featuring part. His meaningful message was recorded during the pandemic peak-time period. It explains it all: the importance of choice, nightlife wandering and life realities we are facing each day. Aquarius Heaven’s vocals are brilliantly harmonized by 8Kays, who gives them a neat and encompassingly completed compositing feeling.

Last but by no means least is iconic Danish producer Denis Horvat who delivers his stunning remix to close the EP in style. His powerful version gives a full spectrum of moods: detuned sounds, glitchy details and robotized Aquarius vocals take the listener to the breakdown, which is well worth the wait.
