Yves Tomas recently announced the Interlink label with new single, ‘Collect Call (Wot)'. Arriving ahead of a full EP in December, the track is a statement of intent for Yves as he readies the new imprint as a home for genres that have influenced him over the years.
Yves Tomas: “Inspired by a phone conversation on a night bus in Bow, ‘Collect Call’ is a return to my roots and an interlinking of the early underground dance music energy I grew up on, with the music I’m playing now.”
The track, a fresh take on classic house sounds, dials in via distorted bleeps, suspenseful pads, and pitched, cut-up vocals. Rimshots form a steady rhythm, building into a dance track while the final segment tumbles into darkness, welcoming a weighty reese bass.
Yves has been tipped by George Fitzgerald on BBC Radio 1, Vogue as a Next Gen Creative and Todd Edwards on Rinse following previous releases on Radio Slave’s Rekids & Pyramids of Mars.
Elsewhere, his productions have been championed by artists like Bonobo, Dance System, Emerald, I. Jordan, Jaguar, Joy Orbison, Skream and many more.
Yves Tomas ‘Collect Call (Wot)’ releases via interlink on 25 November, with the full EP dropping 9 December.
