If you’re looking for timeless quality-ambient music with that typical Northern touch, Yagya’s second album “Will I Dream During The Process?” for sure will be a most welcome discovery.
Aalsteinn Gumundsson’s organic, free-flowing minimal synth washes and bouncing mid-tempo beats create a smooth and gentle ambience, incorporating the refined interplay of rhythmic patterns.
The outcome is minimal IDM/dub-techno with a thick tapestry of flowing white noise and occasional velvet vocal bits painting a wide-open sonic scenery with a nice drift-feel underneath that immerses the listener in a most pleasant, hypnotizing manner. Yagya’s potent atmospheric and ethereal sound textures really rises up to a comfortable breathing space filled with fresh cold air.
All in all, “Will I Dream During The Process?” makes a strong release, also appropriate for those liking a more dynamic counterpart to Yagya’s subtle and silencing “Rhythm of Snow”.
