Over the last few years, UK producer Yak has become known for his dynamic, polyrhythmic soundscapes. Making his debut on Orson’s Version imprint, an established label which has become famed for its shattering records, it wasn’t along before Yak was picked up for dates across the UK – supporting artists such as Objekt, Pangaea, Daniel Avery and Jane Fitz. This year, he will be tackling the festival circuit with dates at Dimensions, KALLIDA and No Bounds. With further releases on Brotherhood Sound System, Le Chatroom, Time Zone and 3024 over the last two years, it’s no surprise that Yak has been picked up by the world-renowned Belgian label R&S Records – a platform home to releases from Aphex Twin, James Blake, Nicolas Jaar and Lone. Making his mark with the ‘Termina’ EP, it’s a bold release from the fast-rising producer who provides five boisterous records, ready to set the dancefloor on fire.
As his recognition continues to build and rightly so, Untitled #909 catch up with Yak to discuss his first experiences with rave culture, his approach to a club residency and ways to overcome procrastination.
