Yppah: Tiny Pause

Yppah: Tiny Pause

4th album from the hard-to-categorize Ninja Tune-related artist. As you can probably tell from his name (read it backwards), this is pretty upbeat, positive music. Lots of live drums and guitars and chopped up vocals along with glittery synths. Would very easily fit in a DJ set with Tycho, Bonobo or Four Tet. Plenty of songs stick to a leisurely tempo, but “Neighborhoods” starts out slow then goes into a doubletime drum’n’bass beat. “Separate Ways Forever” is the most chillwave song here, maybe. “Bushmills” has nice crashing drums (which glitch out a bit sometimes) and a sort of surfy feel. Maybe? Sure, let’s just say it does. Also, the album’s graphic design was handled by chiptune artist minusbaby!
