SAMPLE & HOLD : ike yard

With echoes of Iron Curtain monochrome cultural intractability and emphatically cold minimal electronica, Ike Yard's 1980's angular brand of rudimentary abstract urban musical expression signposts an era of cultural greyness. Arms with Korgs, Rolands, a Synthi-AKS and a Buchla, never has the warmth of analogue been so ceaselessly cold. Expressionless to the point of psychotic, the vocals are cubist smears of sound held at bay by analogue pulses or zomboid rhythms. An uneasy calm surrounds a Munchian silent scream awaiting resolution.
