Style: Techno, Acid
Its been a while since the last release from Yard. Last time we got a treat in the form of some classic styled retro techno - kind of like the missing link between early 90's techno and modern IDM. And this time we have more of the same classic styling.
This four track ep is made up of what essentially could have been heard at any rave or techno club in the early 90s. Yard has perfected the replication of the style of the bygone era, and created essentially a classic tribute to this time.
Classic sounds such as the 'hoover' (from the Roland Alpha Juno 2) are enhanced and recreated (AJ Motors), a great old TB303 bassline can be heard in the last track 'slowly never'.
Its true that this style of music might not match many of Kahvi listeners tastes, but open your mind, listen and learn some musical history.
