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.
