Yaws (Record Launch)
Flora Yin-Wong (PAN)
Sim Hutchins (Local Action, UIQ)
With a new release on Alien Jams due out on Friday 23rd, we're celebrating the launch of the new EP! Recorded earlier this year in his hometown, this 12" marks a new headspace for this London based producer, coinciding with a long and painful visa renewal process that kept him out of the UK for most of this year. YAWS brings forth a EP of six all killer no filler jam outs. Constructed during a period of transience and reflection, YAWS stripped back his usual setup to skeletal form, while placing an emphasis on process, experimentation and put simply, fun. While keeping a familiar thread of tongue in cheek throughout his work...
London-born, Chinese-Malaysian producer, writer and DJ, Flora Yin-Wong works with field recordings, dissonance, and influences from contemporary club culture. She released on PAN's ‘mono no aware’ double LP, whilst her debut EP 'City God', a tape release on New York’s PTP, was inspired by Daoist traditions in regards to tutelary deities and the afterlife, using distorted sounds from temples, traditional Cantonese and Eastern influences. She has performed live at the likes of New York’s ISSUE Project Room, Somerset House, and Cafe OTO, as well as Berghain, Corsica Studios, Barcelona’s Razzmatazz, and across Japan, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Seoul, Beijing, Sydney, Belgium, Copenhagen, Bratislava, and guested on NTS, Know Wave, Boiler Room, and BCR etc.
Sim Hutchins is an audio-visual artist and producer from Essex, UK. Using an array of cheap electronics, his style takes an outsider approach to composition across many genres, channelling the uncompromising visionistic techno of Actress, the disintegrating drones of William Basinksi, the cosmic synthwork of Hieroglyphic Being, and Jandek's propensity for atonal experimentalism.
In 2015 he released his debut LP 'I Enjoy to Sweep a Room' via cult London label No Pain In Pop. 2017 saw the release of the audiovisual project 'Vantablank Stare' on Lee Gamble's UIQ imprint. In Spring 2018 he dropped his 2nd studio album 'Clubeighteen2thirty' (a requiem for rave nostalgia) on the Local Action label.
