ABOUT THE RELEASE


Dysfunctional Combinations & Collaborations Vol.2 sees Slovenian based British producer Yila continue his return to dance-floor territory after a fruitful Vol.1, this time diving into the process of the 90s.

On ‘I’m the Future’ he teams up with Berlin based vocalist / producer / DJ Maya Schenck and Montreal based drummer / percussionist Max Sansalone. The pulsating bassline, throbbing hi hat and Sansalone’s effects laden tribal polyrhythmic percussion apparitions combine with Schenck’s broken down poetry to result in a haunting earworm and an instant alt-club weapon.

Hipslop’ pays homage to the 90s jungle / drum and bass process of sampling old jazz records. Yila distances himself from the past as he dips into his own purpose-made composition played by a 5 piece jazz outfit, cutting and splicing their highly syncopated basslines, atmospheric piano chords and deconstructed intricate drum solos. The accompanying pitch bent recordings of a Tawny Owls mating call adds to the 90s rave / post hardcore references and the homage is complete.
