Ever since I listened to Yoshiba 87’s track ‘You’re The Best Thing Ever’ I’ve been anticipating his full-length with some high hopes.  That album, Beaming Flowers From India, dropped today off Atomnation with some gorgeous gems that standout among the sea of experimental electronic musicians currently dominating the blogosphere.  From my first listen some of my favorites include ‘Aermback’ which is a mostly ambient track with a great Boards of Canada vibe and ‘Jakoetask’ which sounds like it could be the product of a BADBADNOTGOOD jam session.  Throughout the entire album, Yoshiba 87 works with a huge range of sounds that will leave anyone impressed.  Stream below and download here

Experimental beat-makers aren’t exactly hard to find these days with soundcloud having emerged as a perfect platform for producers of all ages and styles, so it’s all the more special when I hear a beat that sounds like it’s coming out of nowhere.  Yoshiba 87, a project of  22-year old Pascal Terstappen, made one of those tracks with his latest leak ‘You’re the Best Thing Ever’.  On the track, Terstappen chops up vocals from Dutch singer Pien Feith and uses them to create an irresistibly dark and stuttering beat.  What makes the track so unique is how it never really settles into a conventional groove as Terstappen keeps everything chaotic and messy throughout.  ‘You’re the Best Thing Ever’ is the first track to drop from his upcoming release Beaming Flowers From India… listen to more over at his soundcloud.
