Nepalese artist YNZN releases first single “Headshot” on SSPB

Nestled within the Himalayas, one of the world’s most vital underground electronic music scenes continues to flourish. The Nepalese capital of Kathmandu has become an incubator for some of the most wild, forward-thinking sounds in dance music right now, developing from a tight-knit community of DJs and producers putting on DIY parties into a scene with growing critical acclaim. YNZN is one of the community’s leading lights, and one listen to his SSPB debut Body Rock makes it immediately clear why. The EP threads together global currents of bass music with samples from centuries-old Nepalese folk tradition, transfigured into blistering percussive workouts that are as immediate as they are intricate.

The first single “Headshot” ist out today. The track eschews melody almost entirely, instead using tuned drums to give subtle hints of harmony amidst the track’s skeletal rhythmic architecture.
