Review: YS – Music Angel (Pace Yourself)

After a number of impressive parties at Salon Zur Wilden Renate, Berlin via Scotland party crew Pace Yourself inaugurate the label arm of their operations with a wide ranging four tracker encompassing dreamy yet floor focussed atmospheres from mysterious duo YS of Potatoheadz Records.

The eponymous UKG-by-way-of electro opener sets the scene for that to come, with a shuffling groove with one eye on the dancefloor and one on the sky. Licks of sub-bass prop up skitting high hats, layered on top of synths of the oh-so celestial variety.

‘Dreams We Share’ occupies the same plane, but as the reflective aftermath. On the flip, old school booty bass mans the B1 with ‘Touch’. 303s bubble underneath a chopped vocal anchoring the EPs Midwest influences but cleverly avoiding pastiche.

Closer, ‘The Future’ shuffles along at a skippy 116 BPM with syrupy drum programming and more cloud catching synths.

Keep your eyes peeled for the promising crew as April sees them release an ambient influenced mini LP from a pillar of the Pace Yourself party and Scottish compatriot!
