Leaving Records is proud to announce A D W A, the debut release by yuk. An album teeming with lush mysteries and dark allure, A D W A explores the misty juncture of beat and melody like a heart-of-darkness jungle cruise.

yuk.’s A D W A is an album of sublime beauty. It’s a fog-shrouded vision quest through gorgeous terrains that transform from glacial to gritty as it winds its way through your ears. I feel a strong desire to loop right back to the start of this awe-inspiring journey after every listen.” 
frosty of dublab

A D W A is a short story of yuk.’s sonic experiments… Documented on magnetic tape, displaying sounds from the far-out left-field end of the My Hollow Drum family… Lo-Fi ambient textures, organic beats, tribal rhythms & rain forest pop in a deep listening of ethereal soundscapes.”

    nice stuff, but why are such hardcore phase inversion in the tracks?

    […] yuk., aka Chad Valencia, is a Los Angeles-based tape artist affiliated with the My Hollow Drum crew, as well as local web radio non-profit dublab. matthewdavid of Leaving Records recently passed me his A D W A cassette, which is jam-packed with visceral shamanistic beauty. None of yuk.’s music is composed on the computer; in its primal rhythms and lush, distorted ambiance, it exemplifies the “organic electronics” sound of the Leaving Records stable. “greenflash(ritual)”, below, starts out with a slow chant, then picks up the pace with a rhythmic call-and-response between some drum and vocal loops, bowing low to the high art of repetition.
