Big Yawn make experimental electronic music by fusing a wash of sweeping synthesizers, heavily refracted vocal sampling, motorik style percussion and disorientating dub FX.
Their latest studio release ‘Pressure Acts’ creates a space where breaks compete with live drums compete and drones. Relentless pummelling bass lines and kinetic dub fx come standard.
Big Yawn’s energetic and unrelenting live performances create a definitive impression on this release. The sonic textures in the record are lush, stoned, frenetic and fun. The music is sinister yet also tongue-in-cheek — Phil Collins and Slipknot may have even been sampled.
The first single ‘Ragazzo’ is ideal for joy rides in HSVs and/or flaunting at the local disco parlor – a tongue in cheek, dank blend of YMO style pop hooks, driving bass, delicate synths, and a motorik pulse.
Pressure Acts is out now on digital and in a limited edition of 300 heavyweight 12” black vinyl EP featuring original cover art by Gab Cole.
