Portis After the Sleepygirls release, the vocals depart again, leaving the trademark Yagya sounds. A little more smoothed over similar to Rigning, with a touch of romanticism as well this time. Favorite track: Young Suns Of NGC 7129.

Biff Johnson and Shelley Andrews Sublime and exquisite are only two words to describe this amazing new release from Yagya. This music has matured greatly in two years. Much more than the trademark downtempo grooves, there are different textures and way more variety in the music itself as it travels the galaxy. The project evokes the Icelandic cool chill to great effect.Get it now!!!!! Favorite track: Substorms On A Winter Night.

Two years after Sleepygirls, Icelandic producer Yagya (aka Aðalsteinn Guðmundsson) is back with another album on Delsin. Entitled Stars And Dust, it features 10 more tracks of hugely atmospheric music that encourages you to get horizontal.

Guðmundsson has been making music for years both solo and as part of the Thule Musik collective. He is an album specialist who has worked as Yagya since 2002 and has put out six albums since then. They come on labels like Force Inc and Sending Orbs and manage to be both absorbing and detailed yet suitable for relaxing background listening. His style is patient and slow burning and finds him marry moving melodies and soft synths, gentle grooves and deep moods into captivating and cerebral soundtracks that really take you on a trip.

Often working with software and focussing on beautiful loops Stars And Dust is another slow motion album that blurs the lines between organic and synthetic sound sources in luscious ways. As soon as the opener gets underway you are carried away on a warm, cavernous and dubbed out breeze and from there the album touches on plaintive piano tinkles, spring-like dub, widescreen and blissed out ambiance and lazy, sun kissed rollers that cannot fail to suck you in and slowly hypnotise you.

Once again this is an exquisite album that is rooted in atmospheric dub but that has very real musicianship, expert melody and a delicate and tender sense of mood running all the way throughout.
