Slovenian based British producer Yila, is releasing today new EP “Dysfunctional Combinations & Collaborations Vol.2” together with a stunning Music Video for track “Hipslop“. Discover the EP now with an exclusive interview of the artist via Psychedelic Baby Mag.
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 distan- ces 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.
The music video was directed by Yila himself collaborating with artists Dennis Katzman, Steven Camden and Emily Evans. The initial idea was to make something that befitted the retro nature but future forward cycle of the track. Something that was analogue but captured digitally and that could speak about a meta-verse.
