Kiss as We Walk
Following from 2012's critically-lauded album TIMETIMETIME&TIME, Kansas-based experimental producer and sonic auteur YYU (pronounced: "why why you") releases his first 12" single for UK-based powerhouse Ramp. Advancing on his home-spun sound that sees the producer utilizing field recordings of live instrumentation and heavily-effected, pitch-shifting vocal refrains -- occasionally sounding like James Blake making garage rock -- alongside modern, hip-hop leaning production techniques. The title-track features chopped-up room ambience, tiny snippets of vocal utterances and snatches of noise filling out the focused, minimal sound. The flip features an emotionally-charged folk song about time and death.
