Yuk.: "greenflash(ritual)"

yuk., aka Chad Valencia, is a Los Angeles-based tape artist affiliated with the My Hollow Drum crew, as well as local web radio non-profit dublab. matthewdavid of Leaving Records recently passed me his A D W A cassette, which is jam-packed with visceral shamanistic beauty. None of yuk.'s music is composed on the computer; in its primal rhythms and lush, distorted ambiance, it exemplifies the "organic electronics" sound of the Leaving Records stable. "greenflash(ritual)", below, starts out with a slow chant, then picks up the pace with a rhythmic call-and-response between some drum and vocal loops, bowing low to the high art of repetition. (via Visitation Rites)
