Niccolo Brown As far as dream pairings go, they seldom get much more mouthwatering than Yaroze Dream Suite, the meeting of two instrumental grime's most futuristic minds; Miles Mitchell (aka Mr. Mitch) and Yamaneko. Constantly eager to discover new ways of pushing the genre, forward their eponymously-titled EP is an intoxicating mixture of melodic simplicity and percussive inventiveness that seems to act as both a fond farewell to grime's past and a tantalising glimpse of we what we might expect from it next. "In The Moonlight", for example, hitches the soulful vocals of Hannah Mack to theatrical steam organ stabs and just enough claps to keep the track from simply floating away. "Awakening", however, acknowledges grime's past with much gun-cocking and drums that sound like uzi bursts, but where once that would be the cue for a gruff MC to unmuzzle his paranoid angst and ratchet up the tension yet further, a mournful synth melody which gradually increases in volume as the track progresses creates an aural paradox which could be descriptive as the EP as whole. It's a mesmerising record and with new solo albums from Mr. Mitch and Yamaneko just around the corner, I for one am drooling at the prospect of what grime's next Great Leap Forward might have in store. Favorite track: Awakening.

about

Mr. Mitch and Yamaneko are Yaroze Dream Suite.

Two of the artists doing most to push grime in new directions, Mr. Mitch and Yamaneko first started working together at Local Action’s London studio in spring 2015, drawing from a mutual admiration and their shared love of naive melodies. The pair continued to work on music during sporadic sessions at the studio, and finished their debut EP a year later.

Yaroze Dream Suite comes after success for Mr. Mitch and Yamaneko’s individual solo albums. Mr. Mitch’s Parallel Memories was FACT’s #2 album of 2014 and praised by Pitchfork, Dazed, The Quietus and more. It was also ranked as one of FACT’s best albums of the last five years.

Yamaneko’s debut album Pixel Wave Embrace was highly praised by Dummy, Dazed, Resident Advisor, FACT and Juno Plus, who ranked it #14 in their best albums of 2014. The album is already a cult classic (its limited cassette run sold out in a matter of weeks), with DJ support from Mumdance, Logos, Objekt, Kassem Mosse, Peverelist and more.

Ahead of new solo albums for both artists, Yaroze Dream Suite finds them collaborating at the top of their game and promises to be one of 2016’s most arresting experimental projects.
