Boomkat Product Review:
Awkward to pronounce if you don't have the knowledge, Yppah (pronounced "Yippah" FYI) is the alter-ego of Texan-bred Joe Corrales - eschewing the Stetson overtones and cattle stamped ground which is the state's musical stereotype, 'You Are Beautiful At All Times' looks to dusty crates rather than dust-bowls for inspiration. Evolving from a rocker to turntable maestro, Corrales became a scratch DJ of some repute; spearheading the mash-up movement a few years back and lending his skills to The Truth crew. Very much taking the hip-hop beats of the turntable cabal then twisting them back in on themselves, Yppah's sound is introspective and considered - melting beatific soundscapes and pink-hued keyboards over a rabble of bounding beats. Melancholic without feeling sorry for itself, 'You Are Beautiful At All Times' opens through the swirling optimism of 'Ending With You'. Blanched in vitamin C and with a sound that harks back to Manitoba/Caribou in his chalk-smudge prime, Corrales bombards the listener with a sunrise of elements that never overwhelm or err towards splenetic. From here we're straight on to the caustic breaks and Hawaiian overtures of 'I'll Hit The Breaks', before 'Again With The Subtitles' arrives through soapy synths and a whiff of the Vicks to pretty much steal the show. Elsewhere the likes of 'What's The Matter', 'In My Drink', 'Good Like That' and 'Longtime' are all worthy of special mention - as Corrales carves a niche somewhere betwixt the realms of Prefuse, Caribou, The Go Team, Orbital and DJ Shadow. Bootiful!
