A shining light on the East Midlands house scene with Rhythm Plate, YSE has been carving more of a solo niche of late. His thing is woozy and bassy off-kilter house, and on Never/Forever he does this particularly well. The title track is the most conventional on here: all deep and retro 90s house vibes and the dreamy and emotional gospel grooves of "The Sky Fell Out" is an EP highlight. Elsewhere "The Beautiful Dream" is a skippy bleep-fest and "What It Means To You" wraps things up with scattershot brittle beats and dubby rhythms.
Spotlight avoiding, crate digging and all-round music aficionado, YSE has built up a 'producers producer' reputation over the last 17+ years of writing & releasing music by working with numerous analogue synths, samplers and outboard gear to produce music.
YSE first started out writing and releasing music back in 1998, alongside Matt Rhythm as one-half of Matlock super-duo Rhythm Plate. Today YSE is rarely DJing out but still releasing music through anonymous and small, independent record labels. As well as putting out music under various pseudonyms YSE continues to stylistically swim around within the electronic music gene pool - making him even harder to place into a specific musical genre.
