It’s always a pleasant surprise when fresh new beats arrive in your inbox from a producer and label you’ve never heard of, and a doubly pleasant surprise when they’re as good as the latest release from Oliver Yorke for Italian imprint Retrospective Recordings.
Digital Native delivers intricate percussion in spades, set to a dark, brooding bassline and gloomy industrial soundscape work; minimal in tonal pallet but maximal in both impact and depth. Lose Yourself on the other hand goes in deeper, switching the hyperactive percussion out for a simpler groove with a little more roll and adding a tightly wound sub line with a touch of wobble for character.
Check out the beats below and watch out for the release dropping September 30th.
