Yeti Out kicks off 2018 with the launch of its compilation series-cum-record label; Silk Road Sounds. As creative tribes from the East and West continue to intertwine both online and offline, Vol.1 explores the meaning of 'journey' through a spectrum of music. The compilation is a sonic exchange of culture, and therefore pulls its name from the mythical trade route which connected Asia with Africa, the Middle East and Europe. The 12-track playlist highlights emerging underground sounds, while pays homage to the different regions through innovative sampling.
The result is a quasi-genre that celebrates cultural diversity in the modern day. By following the tracklist, you'll be guided through a curated selection of textures. From Turkish psychedelic beat, Tokyo grime, UK Funky, to deconstructed electronica from Saigon, the compilation localize the otherwise varied odes of Eurasia. This is the sounds of East London's villainous tower blocks, the millennial undertaking of an Istanbul producers, and sonic experiments that stem from the Hong Kong peninsula and further.
