YHS is proud to release it's debut Artist Spotlight album, eevee. by wasaaga.
We introduced this innovative Michigan producer to our audience with the release of his Artist Spotlight single "moss." back in May. With this series, we aim to expose new talented producers to a larger network of musicians and listeners.
A vibrant and hypnotic project, eevee. is introspective in tone, speaking through thick waves of chords and animated percussion. It's clear wasaaga wants to entrance you for the journey ahead, whether it be through the waterfall of echoed nature sounds on "big eyes." or the dancing melodies on "a note." With eevee. wasaaga has created a truly beautiful record. Here is what he had to say on its creation:
"Eevee, at its core, is a record about change. it's a record about growth. it's a record about uncertainty. Though the process started during the final stages of wasaagamach, the majority of these tracks were created amongst some of the biggest shifts of my life.
"This was a project that helped me cope with the thick fog of the future. more importantly, it's a project that taught me how to allow myself to step through that fog with determination, love and curiosity. Eevee. serves as a transitional record for me. I don't know what's next with the wasaaga project, but this record taught me how to embrace that feeling of uncertainty, and to hold onto it for as long as I can."
"I can't say enough about how thankful I am for Matt Black and Young Heavy Souls for seeing something in this record. this is a release I'll never forget." - wasaaga.
