R&S Records announces Termina EP from Sheffield-based instrumentalist Yak, shares single

…Okay, now that we’ve gotten THAT out of the way: luminary dance-floor trendsetters R&S Records have done us all a favor and cosigned the marvelously named producer Yak for his wild new Termina EP.

This release follows Yak’s previous releases on imprints such as Version, 3024 and Le Chatroom (among others), and sees the Sheffield DJ continuing to hone his off-kilter, heavily percussive style, bouncing airy synth lines off bassy, maddeningly fun rhythms. As lead single “Wide Eye” indicates, Yak’s on his god mode here, zipping between ticktocking cowbells, old-school breakbeats, and ridiculously beefy acid lines with the finesse of a seasoned pro (just wait for that switch-up at the 2-minute mark). Yak’s previous releases have earned shoutouts from the likes of Laurel Halo, Call Super, and Objekt; and with this new EP, he’s sure to pick up a few more for the herd.

The Termina EP comes out May 17. Pre-order it here, stream “Wide Eye” below, and go crazy.
