South UK hotbed of dance music culture seems to nurturing a lot of talent at the moment. Fuck Berlin, if you've got an MPC and an idea head to Peckham! Yam Records are one of the increasing number of boutique labels to be emerging from the area, all with its own highly contextual sound - records informed by a multitude of cultures, influences and varieties of people. It's the 'IN' vote solidified in musical form, but let's not go there now shall we? Beans and Louis make the highest quality house music, which is perfectly demonstrated on this two¬‐track EP. "Global Erosion" sees long¬‐time collaborator Isaac Aesili contribute horn hooks and live percussion to this truly deep and emotional journey. On the flip, "Background Explorer" turns up the heat with an 8 minute heads¬‐down transcendental percussion and drum workout, the surging chords and rainforest calls forcing the head to follow the feet.
