Yasha

Joe Gillick is the co-founder of online radio station Orphan and also one half of experimental pop duo FKL. As Yasha, he steps out as a solo producer, with a debut single inspired by his hometown of London and adopted home in Seattle.

Side A of the release, ‘Landing In SW9’, is inspired by a return visit to London after two years away. Meanwhile – available to listen to now – side B, ‘Landing In 209’, comes from the perspective of being a newcomer in Seattle. With shades of UK garage, the track is also influenced by the warehouse techno scene he found in his new environs.

The two tracks will be released on twelve-inch on 1 Jun, with a release party with Equiknoxx, DJ Firmeza and Debit at Seattle’s Comedy Underground that night.
