Sheffield-based multi-instrumentalist and producer Yarni has teamed up with Oxford-based electronic musician and abstract artist Give Me Monaco, to give us “Take,” a mid-tempo house track with elements of broken beat and dancehall, featuring deft sampling and percussion that is sure to get dancefloors moving in the coming months.
According to the duo: “With ‘Take’ we wanted to play with the idea of merging multiple acoustic details within one track. After layering multiple marimba sources into an instrument rack within Ableton and adjusting pitch and tonal reverb’s GMM then took this audio, slicing it to trigger pads to create an arpeggiated loop. After adding vocal stabs he thought the perfect person to take the track further was Yarni, adding live percussion lines and recording additional synths which helped to sculpt the final composition.”
The track is taken from the duo’s upcoming collaborative album, “Parenthesis,” which is set to be released later this week via EMK, a division of Kartel Music Group. Yarni’s previous productions have received praise and support from renowned figures such as Huey Morgan, Deb Grant of BBC 6 Music, Luke Unabomber of Worldwide FM, Jazz FM, and the late Andrew Weatherall, who described him as an “Amazing Artist.” However, “Parenthesis” marks a departure from Yarni’s previous jazz-infused sound and delves into deeper electronic-focused sonic landscapes.
