There’s nothing more topical than the debt owed by humans to the planet. As more species become extinct and the human race looks on course for wipe out, River Yarra pays tribute to the amphibian inhabitants of the ancient supercontinent, Gondwana. Already familiar with free-flowing Parisian label, Antinote, the Aussie producer flips the downtempo leftfield vibes of his Lucky Boy EP on its head for the label’s 50th outing, Frogmania.
Plunging into the highly animated ‘Frogz Ov Gondwana’, punchy kicks, rippling toms and hissing hi’s show off Yarra’s love of percussion. Bouncy low-end flourishes and crunching maracas pave the way for high range shimmers and twinkles, bringing with them a distinct sense of sorcery. As the raw elements of Yarra’s composition sing, the dynamic realm of Gondwana is truly brought to life.
Frog Mania will be released on Antinote on 28th June. Pre-order from Bandcamp.
