Pharrell returns to seduce the international audience with another mind blowing collaboration, this time with Diploâ€™s Major Lazer.
With a guitar over his shoulder and a laptop hopefully somewhere a little safer, James Yuill has forged the frontiers of Folktronica, the new genre of folk-tinged electronica.Â It may seem an unlikely pairing but like the best relationships, Yuillâ€™s ability to marry the seeming opposites of folk and dance appears to have brought out the best in both. Maybe its got something to do with his growing reputation as a remixer, working with the likes of Au Revoir Simone, David Holmes and The Answering Machine.Â Yuill is one of the Folktronicaâ€™s most creative atists. On stage, between accoustic instruments and machine technology, stands a storyteller who takes us from rural Enghlish backwaters to bustling city nights, each song a pocket universe.Â His songs introduce a new dimension of dance floor and new depth to folk. Listen to ‘Turning Down Water For Air’ or ‘Movement in a Storm’ and prepare to be transported.
