Opening the debut of Yovav on Malka Tuti Records with the original mix of the melancholic ‘Botanical Garden’, a cut of deep atmospheres, more than 7 minutes with synthesizers shedding space and cosmic melodies, the classic rhythm boxes accompanying those magical melodies that teletransport us to other faraway planets in epic form.
‘Botanical Garden’ is accompanyed with a remix signed by Willie Burns called ‘Noodle Remix’, with all the melancholy of the original, and the adds greater deep to remix, a more mystical remix, with a stronger percussion and synthesizers more dreamy.
The second original cut from Yovav is ‘Magnetic Field’, with a sound some closer to the Balearic atmospheres, a great bass gives us to start the track together with guitar riffs, to go changing with synthesizers on a trip closer to Krautrock with psychedelic touches and sinuous waves, a delicious and wonderful trip.
The master of Jori Hulkkonen is responsible for signing the remix to ‘Magnetic Field’, with a brilliant remix, transforming the original into a sound closer to the dance floor, climbing speed, the rhythm, keeping the original magical elements, giving a result of dreamy, with more energetic moments and epic moments with 7 minutes of flight by heavenly paradises.
