The four-tracker sees Sheffield-based Yak (aka John Randall) moving from spaced-out bops of opener ‘Zip’ and video-game hued synths of ‘Guevenne Groove’ on the A-side, to the twirling shimmers of B-side ‘Fret’ and bubbling close of title track ‘Gerudo’.
Gerudo follows Phonica’s release of Harry Wolfman’s The Ritual EP, on its Karakul sub-label, as well as Yak’s ‘Umbra’ / ‘Kaepora’ – one of our favourite dance records in July.
