The new Solar Distance release is from Yamil Del Rio who is better known to many simply as Yamil.
Yamil is an artist who since starting to make music in 2011 has built up an impressive fan base with DJ plays and charts coming from the likes of Solomun, Black Coffee, Lee Van Dowski, Marco Carola, Nic Fanciulli and Luciano.
With such an impressive list of supporters his music has found its way onto labels including Glasgow Underground, ElRow Music, Toolroom, Saved Records, Witty Tunes and Nervous Records.
Not only is Yamil an accomplished producer he has also received DJ bookings in many European countries including Germany, Netherlands and Italy.
Showcasing his deeper and more melodic side with tribal percussion and ethnic influence, this house focused release has been crafted with attention to detail.
Opening the EP is “Eros” using cosmic melodies and epic synths layered with percussive shakers and congas. The growling bassline also adds to the tracks intense vibe and it’s topped off with muffled vocal chants that state the words which give the track its name.
Second on the release is “Lost” that continues the melodic style with building synths that combine with tribal percussion. Painting pictures of desert landscapes, the track has Arabic style vocals and a sound that some might consider spiritual.
Finishing things off is “106” that’s got a low-slung groove and downtempo vibe centred around sampled live percussion. With soothing sounds and delicate vocals the track has a subtle oriental influence, and although it might not be an obvious club track, it’s the perfect mood setter.
