Search By Tag: James Yuill

British artist James Yuill has been something of a staple here on Discobelle with his folktinged dreamy electronic pop. He released his sophomore album “Movement In A Storm” (released by Moshi Moshi) last year, it comes with single “Crying For Hollywood” (that drops next week) and a remix from German club mogul Shir Khan that spruces up the track with a polished discoey feel to push it to the dancefloor.

First In Line

Oct 20 2010

Dan Lissvik continues his streak of sublime remixes (we posted his remix for Joe Worricker yesterday), here is his remix of “First In Line” which is the second single off British folk/electronica singer James Yuills album “Movement In A Storm” and it’s a good spirited, sunkissed, balearicdisco influenced affair.

Sample Me Up 2

Oct 11 2009

James Yuill has finally finished his second Sample Me Up. Here is what he got to say about it:

“I hope that when people listen to the tracks they initially try to hear all the samples, but then get lost and just listen to it as a song rather than a collection of random sounds. The reason I started the Sample Me Up Project is because I wanted the people who listen to my music to get involved in helping me actually create new music. I know a lot of artists ask their fans to help with remixes and artwork. I actually thought it would be quite interesting to crowd source the actual music itself (albeit samples). So here we are!

I’d also like to use this opportunity to unveil my next little project. This one is in the form of a video competition. I’m looking for people to make a video to any one of my Sample Me Up tracks. Shove them on YouTube and send me a link. I will eventually choose a winner, who will then get the chance to make the video for one of my future singles.

Lastly, I’d like to say a big thank you to all the people that sent in samples for my project!”

The (2) tracks are called:

Sample Me Up 2 – The Smashed Bulb (Sendspace)

Sample Me Up 2 – UFO (Sendspace)
