Yorobi: Eden EP

Amsterdam’s Yorobi previously played at Rupture and released a record with Tim Reaper, and now she’s on Sneaker Social Club with her first EP. Her tracks tend to have tight, snappy breaks, occasionally with unexpected sounds poking through, like whatever those sharp paddle-thwacks during “Stabs” are. Unlike the first side, the B-side isn’t jungle at all. “Model Patient” is glitchy electro with a garage swing to it, and “Rhode to Nowhere” is a cavernous journey with busy polyrhythmic percussion and smooth, reverby melodies. Then finally “Eden” sounds like a coded transmission from an invisible realm beyond the pale. A hugely inventive release from a producer clearly interested in reading between the lines of what’s considered club music.
