Steve Angello performs during the Pemberton Music Festival on July 15, 2016 in Pemberton, Canada.  

Steve Angello is going through some kind of transformation. He's entered his Genesis period, which is to say, the start of something new, some holier version of his expansive house sound.

It's not the full album promised to fans just yet, but Genesis is two fresh tracks, with interesting edge. It opens with the synth-heavy “Breaking Kind,” featuring vocals from Paul Meany. This song is for the sinners, the heartbreakers in the leather jackets who drink and smoke and rebel -- but it's okay, because track two is all about starting over in the light of forgiveness.

“Rejoice” features forceful sermons from West Virginian Bishop T.D. Jakes. Get uplifted to make a change in your life and feel the mighty power of the shining organ chords. At seven and a half minutes, it's a journey in itself. The path to salvation may be long, but there are some really sick, godly synths at the end of the tunnel.

“You have to decide to be blessed,” or so the lyrics go. Decide to bless yourself with the Genesis EP below, out everywhere on Size Records.
