Lowriders is proud to present this new release Yelleen by Ard Bit. After previous releases on Symbolic Interaction and Shipwrec and appearances on n5MD, Onrecords and Thin Consolation he finds a warm nest at Lowriders.
The Yelleen EP consists of 6 tracks. Cribble and Vixen were made in collaboration with Jor Mesin (part of the beatrotateproject). The two tracks are a step further away from the IDM straitjacket but it stays in the touch and feel of the latter. The transparency and openness is what gives it its unique character.
Cribble moves strongly into the dubby glitch sound with references to Pole and Plaid.
The detailing on Vixen is beautiful, hectic, Warp-ish. A massive blowing bass horn provides the lead and contrast.
Yelleen is something entirely different. It’s a warm, light and seductive roller. Perfect for the dancefloor
To top it off Alphabets Heaven, Julien Mier and Strand are on the remix duties for Yelleen.
Alphabets Heaven combines sounds of the other tracks within the Yelleen setting. It treats us on a kitchensink feel, organic and housy.
Julien Mier takes the housy elements to the Chi-town freakness and makes you go all the juke way.
Strand brings on some electro-funk boogie in the Skweee corner of madness. Analog twists with Yelleen details.
