DESCRIPTION
 

Following a red letter release in the form of Joe Armon-Jones & Maxwell Owin's Idiom, YAM Recordings return with the second installment of their You And Music compilation series, this time compiled by YAM fam Hollick & Z Lovecraft.
 
Kicking things off on the A side is Native Cruise, a new artist Hollick has been working extensively with on No Bad Days, bringing that signature ‘floaty yet punchy’ sound. It’s a Kwaito-esque club jam with pan flutes and percussive loops bringing that energy to the start of the record. Will Lister’s ‘Sunset Over St. Peter’s Spire’ is up next with a hypnotising yet intricate production from the hugely promising talent. Will is a dude very much affiliated with YAM and, of course, our pals over at Balamii Radio so it only seemed natural to have him on the record. That melody is a proper ear-worm too!
 
The B side, curated by Z Lovecraft, is a slightly tougher affair with three tracks representing his taste in soulful sounds and expands on his A&R work for Rhythm Section International. First up is Rouge Méchanique’s ‘Prisma Ltd’; a 7-minute psychedelic drum odyssey showcasing the multi instrumentalist’s many talents and influences, with guitar overdubs and flute ambience taking the dance floor far and beyond. On B2, upcoming break beat talent, LT, takes the helm with ‘Gale Force’. Hailing from the Peak District, LT makes work of deep vocal pads, 606 touches and a killer bass line. Finishing off the compilation is Wholemeal Music’s boy wonder, Dear Earth, who conjures a charming hip-hop ditty with his delicate assemblage style.
