This week is a major landmark for Go Yoko! With the release of their debut full length album ‘White Noise Riot’ released via MMRecordings, available via all good digital stores.
‘a bombastic and dangerous approach to electronic music, stirring the rave pot into a frenzy of daunting proportions’ – Soundly Sounds
‘Go Yoko! have returned to the roots of the rave and decided to resurrect the ghosts and echoes of all the sounds that got people wanting to dance in the first place’ – Dicky Beats
‘Pulsating Breakneck Synth Freak Out’ – Consequence Of Sound
‘White Noise Riot’ includes the debut single ‘Animus Maximus’ as featured by BBC Introducing.
Spawned from an earlier electro collaboration ‘The Vanity Clause’ which fused the pairing of Russell Harris and Darren Pain, Go Yoko began their music journey in 2011 being asked to play the UK’s legendary Glade electronic festival then swiftly propelled forward to a special Mute records weekender in London where they supported Andy Bell in the presence of the iconic Vince Clark and AddNtoX. Still merely in their infancy and armed simply with their debut EP “Uno”, the duo proceed onwards bouncing comfortably in that space of dancefloor reserved for the alternatives.
The Essex group now have their first full album in construction and due for release in Summer 2013. Whilst drawing inspiration from the live energy experienced from cross genre festival legends such as Orbital and the Chemical Brothers, Go Yoko show textural influence from angular electronic and New Wave acts like Fad Gadget and Cabaret Voltaire. Adding to this twisting Motorik beats, the love of geek-fi/fantasy and John Carpenteresque cinematic themes to give the duo’s own unique blend of dystopian seaside rave.
“Rigged with a heavy dose of roaring synth buzzes, spacey keys and booming beats” – Beats and Beyond
