The opening track on this exceptionally good 4-tracker from Merck's offshoot label "Narita" is one of those rare dancefloor destroyers that crops up every so often, and not nearly often enough. "Swaggle" obliterates everything in its way and in its wake with a rampant nod to Detroit, breaks used out of context, hiccup vocals shredded through a meat grinder and a bassline shuffle that you just cannot mess with. At all. Trust us - that's PRECISELY the sh*t we're talking about, no argument, no messing, no competition! And that's just track one......phew. Anyway. This is by a long shot the finest release on the label to date, one of those twelves you'll be jacking to today, tomorrow and in years to come - absolute Killer!!!! (http://www.boomkat.com, 8/2004)

Yard takes the baton and blitz it bigtime with "Clearing", which is a fuzz fuelled barrage of epic proportions between two gargantuan machines, each swiping through the air and landing hits on each other, sending shards of imagination far into the distance.

Yard will be on the old mix-and-mash, playing live laptop mash-ups for the wonderment of the collective subconscious. God, this century RULES! JS (Portland Mercury) - multiple

Bio

As well as destroying spots with possibly the freshest techno to be heard in years, Yard also runs the CD-r label Toast & Jam. Yard's music is reminiscent of old Detroit techno, Gescom's dance moments and new evolving sound scapes. Yard is set apart from the rest of the genre because of his new hybrid technoid music and his uncompromising aesthetic.
