Having released one of 2017’s best albums in the form of Joe Armon-Jones & Maxwell Owin’s Idiom, YAM Recordings return with the second instalment of their You And Music compilation series, this time compiled by Hollick & Z Lovecraft.
Showcasing five rising producers for the release, the label recruits Native Cruise, Will Lister, Rouge Mécanique, LT and Dear Earth for an EP of diverse dance sounds.
With the quality control set to high Native Cruise delivers a Kwaito-esque club jam. Up next is Will Lister’s ‘Sunset Over St. Peter’s Spire’ a hypnotising yet intricate production from the hugely promising talent.
On the flip side Rouge Mécanique is in fine form with ‘Prisma Ltd’; a 7-minute psychedelic drum odyssey illustrating the multi instrumentalist’s many talents and influences.
Next up is LT with ‘Gale Force’. A floaty breakbeat jam with deep vocal pads, 606 touches and a killer bass line. Rounding off the compilation is one of our favourite discoveries Dear Earth, who conjures a charming hip-hop ditty with his delicate assemblage style.
Strong, excellently curated second offering in the series from the South London label. Can’t wait for number three!
