Yamil is in a state of creative grace. His releases on influential labels such as MoBlack, Solar Distance, Sudam, Madorasindahouse, King Street, Radiant and LNDKHN are the best proof of it, most of them have placed themselves on the first positions of Beatport and Traxsource’s Top 100 sales charts.
Now, the Spanish producer has decided to step forward in his career with the creation of his own label Pieces Of Life, with which he will release his first LP, being the label’s first reference. Under the title of “POL Talks” Yamil has reflected “something unique and different, deeper than my usual sound. A journey in which each track tells a different story but giving sense toone ensemble” he says. In fact, the idea of creating the label Pieces Of Life is motivated precisely to unleash all his creativity, without imposed restrictions or limitations by the dominant trends.
“POL Talks” was born at the end of 2018 and its creation process lasted through last year as Yamil needed time to involve all the musicians and artists that he wanted to add to the project. The Colombian duo MNKYBSNSS really stand out, who recorded the instruments in Bogotá, the Spanish band HUMANICE, the vocals of the also Spanish wxlf RAIN or the Brazilian singer DYMNO, who worked in his study in Brazil. The rest of the rhythmic composition, musical arrangements, melodies and mix were developed in Yamil’s studio in his natal town, Aranda de Duero (Burgos).
The result is a piece of eight original tracks that conform “POL Talks”, eight remoted compositions from labels that flow free from Yamil’s deepest soul as indispensable pieces to understand his life. The first track, homonymous, has an intriguing and mysterious nature that prepare us to what is coming. “Encontrarnos” manages to surprise us with its vitality, fresh air and indies reminiscences. “Deep Red In The Sky” has a soul character and picks up some of the initial deepness that “See You Coming” maintains with sweeter elements. “Never No Right” offers us a little truce, allowing us to relax and enjoy this little heaven of peace that doesn’t go away with “What Don’t Wanne Be”, although it takes us to more emotive sides. “Too Many Questions” adds the needed emotion and darkness to balance the sweet and emotive end with “Endless”. The LP has also a striking cover made by the graphic artists Laura Cruz (Wompaint), a unique piece of art that reflects perfectly the organic nature of these tracks.
We will see Yamil perform the album live in different clubs in the world very soon, as his usual appearances in countries such as Argentina, Italy, Turkey, Lebanon, Holland, United Kingdom, Mexico, Peru, Chile and Panama. For the moment, “Music from the hearth to the soul without mattering the gender or name”, “POL Talks” will be available via Pieces Of Life from 13th December.
