Last month, we ran two features with NYIKO, including the premiere of Tyler Daniel Bean’s reworking of his song “Drag Me Down,” as well as a Tracklisted with Nyiko Beguin, featuring songs that have inspired his approach to writing and production. Today, we’re premiering the entire You Know I Loved It EP, available now via Trailing Twelve Records.
You Know I Loved It is heavy on the synth-pop, featuring a dark lyrical twist focusing on themes of infidelity and intimacy. The EP’s title track, as well as “Drag Me Down,” both get the remix treatment, from Suplington and Sasquatch, respectively. Those remixes, as well as Tyler Daniel Bean’s version of “Drag Me Down,” aren’t included on the 7″, but can be heard on the cassette and the digital.
“For the one who hurt me the most — without you, this would not have been. Thank You” is printed on the back of the sleeve, focusing on the theme of the EP.
You Know I Loved It is available on a transparent red 7″, hand-numbered out of 500, featuring a full-color insert with lyrics. Side A features “You Know I Loved It,” while Side B has “Drag Me Down.” It’s also available as a cassette, which features all of the songs streaming below. The red tint cassette is limited to 50 copies with a full-color, four-panel insert.
