Yak - Termina EP
UK producer Yak originally flew onto my radar when he appeared on Martyn’s 3024 label last year with his Rhodes Island EP. Anyone percussion heavy is going to get some A plus love from me.
He’s this great drum heavy techno. With drums so overpowering it’s like it’s from the Drum and Bass world but he’s really uniquely very much his own sound.
The mixing is always incredible and the drum patterns really pan often and a lot but it’s never too much. It’s some of the most well produced dance music going around though which isn’t expected if Martyn is prepared to release you.
He’s been given a place among the gods at R&S for this EP. It suits the label really, super sick broken beat techno. Nice drums that you can only compare to maybe Paul Woolford.
This EP is heavy weight and minimal with an extreme amount of power. Totally in love with the production on this. Anyone with headphones will really appreciate this.
