Yosh returns with his fourth Time Is Now release. Following the success of UKG-focused 5-tracker, ‘The Warning’ released at the end of last year, Modulate EP sees the London producer put his inimitable spin on breaks, translating into 4 tracks firmly rooted in the genre’s antecedents yet offering something distinctly new.
‘New Dawn’ is a prime example of Yosh’s priceless ability to create something which is at once hard-hitting and soulful with clattering breaks and luscious vocals which float blissfully above them. Next up, ‘Modulate’ adds a thumping 4/4 beat into the equation, creating an assertive march with plenty of swing before ‘Snap Back’ brings the ruffage with a sharp two-step rhythm and fierce bass womps. Finally, it’s up to ‘Track 1’ to close proceedings. A real heater, a syncopated triplet rhythm lends it its driving propulsion - almost resembling the club sounds native to northeastern regions of the US such as Jersey and Baltimore. Thudding assertively beneath the stylistic tropes of UKG, this makes for a truly unique sound and solidifies Yosh’s status as a highly innovative and forward-facing producer..
