What’s most beautiful about SPOT Festival in Aarhus this week is the sheer range of different styles and sounds they keep adding each year. Dutch producer duo YĪN YĪN here sport a very fine sense for rhythms and vibes that they curated and refined when recording songs in a ballet school in a remote village at the foot of the Plateau of Doenrade near Alpaca Mountain, about an hour outside hilly Maastricht, by bike.
The festival pitches them as “a modern take on the Thai-funk of 60s and 70s, easy Thai-riffs fusing in a sound that stretches towards the South East Asian trance party through disco, funk and rock.” Point made. Their trademark single Dis Ko Dis Ko that came out via Bongo Joe Records as a 7inch last year, is smoothly embedded below. With their live setup including a double-neck guitar, their gig will be one not to miss. They are scheduled to play Friday May 3rd, 22h30 at Den Rå Hal, Godsbanen.
