Hotly tipped producer and songwriter yuné pinku releases her debut EP “Bluff”, a glowing amalgamation of breakbeats, ambience, and barrier-defying club tracks. It’s a dazzling first look into the kaleidoscopic world of yuné pinku’s creation, a melancholic waltz through bubbling dimensions and Y2 K-inspired visual cues.
First single ‘Laylo’ layers mesmeric dance hooks in clever, textural ways, the title track employs scuttly garage drums with golden era UKG bass stabs, while ‘Affection’ (with its must-watch, iridescent video-trip) takes on a dubby bassline reminiscent of experimental early 00s post-dubstep. It makes for a heady, thrilling first statement of intent. The penultimate single, ‘DC Rot’ balances multitude of wavering chords and melodies. Undoubtedly a nod to UK rave culture, the introduction of phased-out breakbeats and pipe harmonies successfully blur any attempt at boxing this track firmly within a specific genre in true yuné pinku style. The visual accompaniment is an ode to homemade skate videos, starring yuné’s sister and pro skater Faith.
yuné shares some of the inspirations behind the“Bluff” EP: “Bluff is about letting go and reeling in, finding your feet in the night life world. I think this song is a kind of an ode to London night life and it’s a song I think really sums up my feeling of the good times I had as a teenager in London, but also with the slight paranoia of the danger that exists in the night world. The title bluff is about playing the game and showing your best poker face”.
