Yolabmi – Life In A Shell CS (VAKNAR17)
After showcasing his unique electronic output via the ‘Surging Waves’ compilation on Vaknar last year, Japanese native yolabmi steps up for his first solo release on the label, titled ‘Life In A Shell’.
On A side, a selection of yolabmi’s recent compositions have been chosen, complied and mixed by the label, mainly focusing on the more tranquil side of yolabmi’s sound, which features an array of drone works, piano and modulated voices.
The B side on the other hand, is fully comprised of a single, unedited session, featuring live improvised electronics by yolabmi, delving further into the Japanese artists pendant for unorthodox yet compelling production methods.
End the end, ‘Life In A Shell’ provides us a comprehensive glimpse into yolabmi’s unconventional sonic spectrum, one that seems to be situated somewhere between tranquil field recordings, improvised analogue electronics and digital interference – always keeping the listener on his toes as to where he might take things next.
