Brisbane based DJ and producer, Rebel Yell, shares ‘Next Exit‘, a stirring acid track which instantly impresses. Grace Stevenson, A.K.A Rebell Yell, is preparing to release her debut album, ‘Hired Muscle‘ on June 22nd a swiss army knife USB which shall include a digital download of the album and a clip for each track.
‘Next Exit’ is a fist pumping acid cut, which from the outset, radiates an underground rave vibe. Distorted synths and a crackling baseline underscore the track which is accompanied by a progressive-tech beat. The joint is hallmarked by an uncompromising rawness which gives it plenty of power. Not only would this track be suitable for the underground club scene, but it would translate perfectly to a renegade doof held in a picturesque industrial wasteland.
Rebel Yell explains how her latest release came to life, with the help of Patrick Hase who composed the accompanying video clip. ”One of the first songs written for the album, Next Exit is a techno track created from a home studio jam. A hard hitting techno burner. A visceral experience of noise and repetition, carving deep discordant tones into a neat electronic dance tune. Complemented by Patrick Hase’s complete face melt of a film clip,”
Hase suggests the origin of the film clip ”distils abstract 90s rave animation and video games into digital visual excess. It explores the illusion of movement within animation and games and the focus on forward momentum as a means of achievement.
Rebel Yell must be commended for her production on ‘Next Exit’ which is in equal parts nostalgic and forward thinking. Let’s hope the young legend tours soon! Wrap your earholes around this banger and check out the truely awesome film clip.
