Yamaneko follows the critically-acclaimed Pixel Wave Embrace with a new album of bleak compositions inspired by keygen music and the deep sea.
One of electronic music’s most individual voices, Yamaneko operates on the peripheries of instrumental grime, but is equally inspired by new age, video game soundtracks and Drexciya’s aquatic techno. His debut album Pixel Wave Embrace has already proved influential and is considered a cult classic, praised highly by Dummy, Dazed, Resident Advisor, FACT, Tiny Mixtapes and Fader.
Project Nautilus is bleaker, darker and more inward-looking than Pixel Wave Embrace, heavily influenced by the simple, often melancholic music made by keygen composers. Beneath its watery surface, Nautilus abstractly deals with themes of communication, identity, loneliness in hyper-connected eras, and social withdrawal.
It’s not an easy or inviting album, but it’s filled with as much subtle detail as it is blank space, resulting in one of the most haunting records of the year.

As far as dream pairings go, they seldom get much more mouthwatering than Yaroze Dream Suite, the meeting of two instrumental grime's most futuristic minds; Miles Mitchell (aka Mr. Mitch) and Yamaneko. Constantly eager to discover new ways of pushing the genre, forward their eponymously-titled EP is an intoxicating mixture of melodic simplicity and percussive inventiveness that seems to act as both a fond farewell to grime's past and a tantalising glimpse of we what we might expect from it next. "In The Moonlight", for example, hitches the soulful vocals of Hannah Mack to theatrical steam organ stabs and just enough claps to keep the track from simply floating away. "Awakening", however, acknowledges grime's past with much gun-cocking and drums that sound like uzi bursts, but where once that would be the cue for a gruff MC to unmuzzle his paranoid angst and ratchet up the tension yet further, a mournful synth melody which gradually increases in volume as the track progresses creates an aural paradox which could be descriptive as the EP as whole. It's a mesmerising record and with new solo albums from Mr. Mitch and Yamaneko just around the corner, I for one am drooling at the prospect of what grime's next Great Leap Forward might have in store.

Caos and Harmony coexist if they go hand by hand with Melody. Becoming N(one) could be a dream that becomes a nightmare, galactic sounds that mix together until they create a cold, eerie ambient that sucks you up till the end. Masterpiece. 9.7/10 Liber
