YACHT

Ready to transport you away from a cold, dark Mancunian Winter is the Too Slow To Disco cartel, fresh of the yacht with a clutch of poolside pleasure for your next sun lounger session. Packing plenty of bump on this outing from HOLDtight, Delphonic, Jack Tennis and Those Guys From Anthens.

Loopy slo-mo disco grooves characterize HOLDtight's opener, made for that sultry creep across the beachfront with darting eyes as you search for a vacated patch ready to stake your claim too. Delphonic deploys swirling Moogs across a celebratory chord sequence with the appropriate woo's and whee's to accompany such a moment. Jack Tennis gets frisky with a lost Brazilian disco number; working the low pass in a sensual but fervent manner. Those Guys From Anthens' closing nugget ensure a laid back and horizontal vibration sweeps over all who hear; we ain't leaving the party yet! As always, essential stuff for sunnier climbs.

    This is the new compilation by TSTD/DJ Supermarkt with Soul/Funk Coverversions of Westcoast/AOR/Yachtpop gems! TSTD returns with another trip into the musical past of the sundrenched Westcoast: This time DJ Supermarkt unearthed 17 Soul & Funk Coverversions of original Westcoast/AOR/Yachtpop gems. As slightly expected, the The Afro-American musicians add a heavy dose of Funk and heavenly Soul to the game. The original tracks are covered by big Soul & Funk acts like Aretha Franklin, Chaka Khan, Quincy Jones, Brothers Johnson, but also forgotten acts like The Ebonys, Leslie Smith, Side Effect. And you can find tracks originally performed by the big league of the Westcoast, like The Doobie Brothers, Fleetwood Mac, Hall & Oates, Steely Dan, Wings, and even The Beach Boys, alongside lesser known acts like Ned Doheny, Bill LaBounty, Airplay! Most tracks are from the late 70s/early 80s, but failed to become big hits and fell under the radar. Like Chaka Khan doing a seriously funky version of Fleetwood Mac's Everywhere (from an unreleased album recording), next to obscure reworks like Leslie Smith's version of Nothin You Can Do About It by the overlooked Airplay (Jay Graydon and David Foster). There are especially surprising versions here, like Millie Jacksonís gospel-like rendering of This Is It by Kenny Loggins/Michael McDonald, or Billy Paul's Black Power-influenced version of Paul McCartney/Wings Let Em In and the rare cover of The Beach Boys God Only Known by Betty Everett. Overall another TSTD collection of smooth, sunny, extremely soulful and funky tracks, that needed to be dug-out to be heard again. This is Bottled Sunshine! Vinyl comes as usual in gatefold sleeve with liner notes, download code and 180g heavy orange double vinyl.

    All formats come with a free Piccadilly Records EOY Sampler CD whilst stocks last.

    Chain Tripping — the band’s seventh LP and third for DFA —was recorded between Marfa, Texas and the band’s home in Los Angeles. The ten songs are unlike anything YACHT has ever made: pop experiments from a sideways dimension coaxed into their studio through a portal opened by machine intelligence.

    “AI and Machine Learning represent a revolution in music equivalent to the introduction of the synthesizer or the beginning of laptop music. We’ve been a band long enough to watch technology overwrite our assumptions many times, and felt compelled to bring these new tools into our life,” explains YACHT.

    YACHT (an acronym for “Young Americans Challenging High Technology”) is Claire L. Evans, Jona Bechtolt, and Rob Kieswetter. For "Chain Tripping", the trio invented their own working method, at the intersection of DIY and high-tech: they used neural networks to break their patterns apart into infinite variations, which they re-assembled into new songs that they then learned, performed, and recorded live. Rather than rely on any single tool, they brought together several distinct AI processes to generate lyrics (Char-RNN), musical data (MusicVAE), raw audio (SampleRNN), and instrumentation (a “neural synthesizer” called the NSynth). They were inspired by the long history of generative composition, from William S. Burroughs’ cut-up writing method to David Bowie’s custom “Verbasizer” lyrics software from the ‘90s.

    Shangri-La - White Vinyl Edition

      Patrick says: Back in my salad days, before I became the hirsuite vinyl pedlar am I today, I toiled away as a full time DJ and party promoter, bringing exciting and alternative performers to half full venues on a continuous loss-making journey. It was during this period when I first came across DFA act Yacht. The conceptual thought bubble of Jona Bechtolt and Claire L. Evans, Portland's Yacht sold themselves as an inclusive organisation aiming to enhance the spiritual, physical and psychic well being of mankind through seminars and self help tapes; plus they had tunes, looked amazing and brought the party live. I once saw Jona jump 5' onto a stage from standing. On "Shangri-La", Yacht assert that the future is a blank slate upon which anything can be imposed. "Shangri-La" argues that "Paradise is kinetic potential, a latency within us that has been eaten alive by time." In line with the existing emphasis on self-empowerment in the Yacht philosophy, Yacht's idea of "Utopia" is personal. Yacht believes that the only real sustainable paradise is in our minds, and hence creative output can be a tangible piece of the Utopia within each individual. 'Shangri-La' literally is Yacht's Utopia, a place made of songs.  And what are the songs like, you ask. Still working in a post-punk landscape the duo created a mix of B-52's style quirky pop, DFA disco and off kilter bass grooves. The result is an absolute classic, join the movement.
