UK duo Raime’s project Yally is a brutal combination of garage, grime and jungle. The duo takes a stripped back journey to the dark side of early 90s with monumental sub-bass frequencies.
Joe Andrews and Tom Halstead blew the minds of last year’s PHONO audience when they played as Raime. Their new project named Yally is basically Raime taking in a platter of garage, grime and jungle. It is designed to “explore Bass Futures indiscriminately.” Yally follows Raime’s second album ‘Tooth,’ released last spring on Blackest Ever Black. The two London-based artists have continued to adjust and hone a signature style in which sludgy, dark, ambient textures flirt with punk, garage, and dub techno.
After numerous releases, the duo has earned much deserved respect amongst electronic music lovers. The latest EP ‘Dread Risk / U-Eff.O’ was released on Diagonal run by Oscar Powell and Jamie Williams, the latter having once said that drum & bass was his first real musical love, so no big surprise that Yally is to be found in the label’s catalogue.
