Vinyl Retention: Ylem

Wednesday, November 21st, 2012

Every Wednesday, Sardi lets us know what’s tickling his eardrums in the world of dance music…

YlemHaving recently won the WAM electronic song of the year, local producer and DJ Ylem is set to unleash his sophomore album Disk.151 on The Community Records imprint.

Following on from his 2010 Urban Grey LP, Ryan Burge, better known as Ylem gives us 11 tracks of seriously intense production. Extremely electronic, yet overwhelmingly organic sounding, the album is an excursion into low-slung beats, pumping synth textures, pitch bending bass and glitchy vocal cut ups. The production is second to none and musically, the vibe is sometimes haunting but always lush and beautiful.

This is a well thought out and executed album, and one of the finest releases I’ve heard all year. Served best with a bottle of cough syrup.

If you like what you hear, be sure to tune in to RTRFM’s Full Frequency between 3pm and 5pm, as Sardi and Dart explore the world of Drum and Bass and beyond.
