Where to place YĪN YĪN on the map? Maybe somewhere between Netherlands and Southeast Asia, on an imaginary tropical island. That’s where they brew a strange cocktail made of discogrooves, powerful “Thai beat” tunes and experimental tropi-synths. After two remarkable singles on Les Disques Bongo Joe, they’re back with The Rabbit That Hunts Tigers. Made of groovy tunes and dance killers, this album could be the crazy soundtrack of a 60s hippie village on the South China Sea.
YĪN YĪN recorded this first tape in a ballet school in a remote village near the Alpaca Mountain. Kees Berkers and Yves Lennertz were the puppet masters of this in-studio experience. The result is a landscape where rabbits chase after tigers, an upside-down world were you’ll definitely dance forever.
