At first listen we didn’t know what genre to put YarleN’s productions in. However, behind the curtain, she’s doing big things with local acts of all genres. Recently, she’s had music placements on U.K. Internet radio stations and placement on a fetish website.
I recently had the chance to throw some questions at YarleN about what musical endeavors lie ahead.
1. What’s on your To-Do List, YarleN?
Finish Scratch D & YarleN Diamond Eyes EP
2. There’s talk about collaborations, remixes, and a possible EP? Could you verify these rumors?
Manuvers and I just finished an EP which will be released in April. I’m really excited about this one! I’m also working with Sharpsound, Oly, and Scratch D of Dynamix II. And I’m waiting on two remixes from DJ Raggs & Substeppers from London.
3. What genre(s) of music are having a major impact on your current tracks?
All genres inspire me. I’ve been listening to a lot of Flying Lotus, Anti Pop Consortium, Richard Divine, The Residents, Phoenicia, Jimmy Edgar, and Busta Rhymes lately. And that’s just to name a few. I’m kind of random.
4. At the rate that you’re going, what do you see in the future for your music?
I really want to collaborate with as many different musicians as possible and turn people on to experimental music in general. I guess I’ll see where that takes me.
5. Is YarleN a studio project or we will ever see you expanding as a stage act, too?
YarleN is definitely not just a studio project. Once I get over my stage fright, I’ll be rocking a speaker near you.
6. What do you feel about the experimental scene in Miami? Do you feel there’s an actual experimental music scene here?
There is a very small but awesome experimental scene in Miami. Artist like Y- Diz and Otto Von Schirach are my favorite! Not to mention Schematic, who is still putting out some of the best rare and unique sounds in the experimental world.
7. Anything you’d like to add?
