The next album project on Hell Yeah Recordings is a long distance overseas collaboration between the Italian label and Australian producers Somerville & Wilson. Yantar is a seven track affair (+ bonus track) that marks the duo’s debut LP and it follows on from EPs on labels like Danny Was A Drag King, ISM Records and Paper Recordings.

Once again this record finds Richard Somerville and Craig Wilson showcasing sumptuous slowed down sounds for serious grown ups. They have remixed on Hell Yeah before now and have found their way into the bags of DJs like Tensnake and Gerd Janson, and are very much at the forefront of a chugging disco sound in their native Australia.

The album opens up with the title track, a blissed out and bubbling piece of lush synth music with dreamy keys and shimmering chords that immediately set a sun kissed scene. From there Melt is a loveable slow-disco number with gurgling acid, Lantern Dusts is a dubby, balearic, sax laced number to get boat or beach parties into a groove and Field of Poplar is as tropical and dreamy as can be. The floaty vibe continues through the last 4 tracks, which range from deep and undulating acid to spaced-out house via woozy and organic jungle sounds.

This is a colourful and warming release that is sure to introduce Somerville & Wilson to the wider audience they deserve.
