Yellow@TheLight debuts raw, soul-throbbing electronica album "Roughs & Remixes"
Yellow@TheLight, is an electronic music artist caught between two opposing currents, and he enjoys the challenge of staying afloat. He relishes creating serene, stream-of-consciousness electronica while spinning and remixing dirty Electro-House beats. Yellow's influences are as eclectic as his DJ-ing; his favorite artists range from BT to Nine Inch Nails, from Clapton to The Crystal Method. "They're just two ends of the spectrum I'm trying to bring together in some sort of mass-confusion," he says. "Something I Could Never Have," off Roughs, is an original inspired by a NIN track, which made it to the second spot on the band's remix Podcast. Here is the link: http://remix.nin.com/play/mix?id=23373
Yellow's debut album Roughs is just that. It's a collection of 13 original tracks-some which are still raw and unfinished. Roughs, which is available on iTunes, is a rare opportunity to get inside Yellow@TheLight's head and see his creative process as it unfolds through his electrifying rhythms and haunting melodies. "I want people to feel how I felt when I was making the album," he says. "I just want people to enjoy it." Roughs is the culmination of a three-and-a-half year relationship with his studio equipment and features the best selections of one hundred experimental tracks, their love-children.
Yellow is present in all 13 songs, pouring his emotions, experiences and influences into each track. "Nopey," his favorite on the album, is named after his childhood dog. "There's something about the way it sounds that makes me feel happy and at peace," he explains. "Brainwaves" is Roughs' edgiest track; the beat is other-worldly as he beefs up an original guitar melody through a synthesizer for the main sound. "Making 'Brainwaves' was like running with scissors. You hope you don't fall down," he says. "I wanted to see how far I could take an idea and stretch it out without going completely overboard." The album's most popular track so far is "1am" featuring vocals by the soulful Jackline Lugo. - And has been played on Podcast Episode 14: "Call it What You Want" on Yellow@TheLight's YellowCast. http://yellowatthelight.podomatic.com
Although Yellow's debut album is out, he's nowhere near finished creating new tracks. Yellow's dirty, yet pretty remixes, not featured on Roughs, and are ready for download off SoundCloud. He's also working on more original beats for his next album. "Britney," named after his long-time girlfriend, is emotionally-charged, raw and may be his favorite track yet. "I'm putting all my emotions into my music like an artist would with a canvas," Chris explains, "but I don't have a paintbrush."
Yellow's roots in music run deep. He has been surrounded by sound his entire life as his father, a musician, was always picking a guitar or mandolin. The habit caught on with Chris, as he and his guitar were often inseparable during high school. But, something electronic pulsed through him, pushing him to purchase his first set of turntables when he was 13. Mixing and playing grew from hobby to obsession as he neared college. Chris dove into the electronic music scene by DJ-ing gigs, bartending weekends at Pacha NYC and making his own tracks.
Yellow@TheLight is currently filling the airwaves with his infectious rhythm and body-pulsing beats through his Web site, www.yellowatthelight.com. He's also on Facebook, Twitter, Myspace and SoundCloud. Follow his Podcast, YellowCast, to hear his latest remixes and originals. Yellow spins in New York City and has torn apart its Club Mecca's: Webster Hall, Pacha and Marquee to name a few.
