Simon Chester Been a fan of Yagya for years and have loved going through his back catalog and blissing out to the downtempo/ambient dub techno.
But now he's made a 'proper' techno album (a la Kangding Ray) and I am LOSING MY MIND. I want to be in a forest and hear it loud enough to strip the leaves from the trees. I want accompanying fire and lightning and chaos and to have this album be the final thing I hear before my eardrums explode.
I am utterly in love with this album - and I only bought it yesterday! Favorite track: Stormur sjö.

  • *(slightly dented sleeve)* Limited Edition X2LP (Transparent Blue Marbled) + Mixed CD
    Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    Unfortunately, we had several boxes slightly damaged which meant the sleeve corners are very slightly dented on these copies. The records are however still perfect and have not been affected. Many people wouldn't notice or mind the dent, but we would not want to sell them without letting you know. See pics. As a result, we have reduced the price on these copies from $35 to $28.

about

Known to many for his infamous ambient dub techno album, ‘Rigning’, Yagya’s landmark release took us deep amongst the rain-drenched forest. The beautiful, slowly shuffling atmospheric masterpiece set a blueprint for the notorious style we now know him best for. Fast forward ten years, and the gently falling rain from Rigning has now intensified. Yagya has shifted to something with more energy, a more defined groove, and a growing euphoric state: Stormur.

Stormur, sees Yagya continue to evolve his sound into the pure techno realm. His unique palette still identifiable, but the focus now on the swirling hypnotism, the delicate tonal progressions, whispering vocals, and the underlying current that transports you. From the forest floor to the soaring treetops, the dense whirlpools of mist, and the breathtaking landscapes are now seen from above.

Confident in its simplicity and efficiency, Stormur is focused on the subtle flow and progression between tracks akin to a full DJ set, transporting you from one chapter to the next. Each track taking its cue from the previous. The tonal shifts are minimal, resulting in a trance-like state throughout the ten movements, best absorbed in one sitting, with guest vocalist Hatis Noir providing an angelic voice amongst the shifting patterns, swirling synthesizers and driving grooves.
