Yagya | Rigning vinyl

Having already tackled winter on his debut album Rhythm of Snow, Yagya moved onto rainier months with Rigning. Arguably the Icelandic producer’s most self-assured effort, the hour-long opus received a long overdue repress in a remastered triple LP edition last year.

Alternating between dub-techno dynamics and beat-less breaks, it seems to reference everything from the slick neon streets of Blade Runner to the celestial film scores of Popol Vuh. Not to mention old nature films and the dull, muffled throb of a dance club that seems to only exist in our collective subconscious.
