Yamaneko's dreamy, grime-ish, 'totes emosh' electronic music received a well-earned Album of the Week rating when debut album 'Pixel Wave Embrace' was released through Local Action a couple of weeks ago. That album demonstrated Yamaneko's ability to construct a realm for himself and his music to inhabit. He even invented a parallel universe for it, crafting "Otherworld" mixes of each of the album's tracks.
It's unlikely that the majority of those Otherworld mixes will ever see the light of day, but he has offered a glimpse into what that world might resemble with this alternate version of Tugboat, which is a little more stripped back, a little weirder, and a little rawer than its album mix.
It comes out on 'Coyote Kings Vol. II', a forthcoming compilation from instrumental grime/club trax outlet Coyote Records.
