“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” – Yves Tomas
Arriving ahead of a full EP in December, ‘Collect Call’ is a statement of intent for Yves Tomas as he readies his new Interlink imprint as a home for genres that have influenced him over the years. 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 an exuberant, feel-good dance track while the final segment tumbles into darkness, welcoming a weighty reese bass.
Yves Tomas has been hotly-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 cutting-edge 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)’ is out now via Interlink Records, with the full EP dropping 9th December 2022.
