Athens, Georgia-based duo Yip Deceiver announce the release of their debut album, the dancefloor-quaking Medallius, via New West Records on Monday 7th July. The album follows the April release of lead track and single 'Presets' with its accompanying video directed by revered underground hip hop hero Flynt Flo$$y of Turquoise Jeep.
"Two dudes, two mics. Anything can happen."
Behold, the proclamation of Yip Deceiver, the tag-team dance duo, who broadcast sexxed-up jambox jaunts and light club floors ablaze at home in Athens, Georgia and beyond. Their debut album, Medallius, dishes out 11 tracks of rump-shaking, fist-pumping ecstaticism, from the minimalist Detroit- style bassline and funktified guitar strums of 'World Class Pleasure' to the tightly-wound dance-anthem, 'Get Strict'. The sonic lovechild of producer/songwriter, Davey Pierce, and executive vibes manager, Nicolas 'Dobby' Dobbratz, Yip Deceiver fills the void for music that can stoke a party- fire and eschews cooler-than-thou posturing.
Perhaps it's Italo-disco without the Italy, blasting iridescent electrofunk that howls with neon keyboard trills and 8-bit handclaps or more simply ' synth- pop. "Medallius is an attitude and a lifestyle," Dobby says of the philosophy of their made-up title. "Medallius is always keeping an elegant attitude regardless of how trashy a situation is." The album keeps it classy. 'Color Me In' could be music for an after-hours fashion show on Venus, or 'Lover', Davey postulates, could provide the soundtrack for "an '80s or early '90s super-triumphant fringe sport movie, where someone moves somewhere and becomes a bad-ass at karate, skateboarding, or BMX riding." Dobby calls it 'smooth punk', Davey thinks it's 'indie R&B'.
Live dates for the UK and Europe to be announced soon.
