Yamaneko follows up 2014’s Pixel Wave Embrace with his second full-length on Local Action. The album coincides with the release of his debut EP as half of Yaroze Dream Suite – his new project with Mr. Mitch – and shows the London producer using a broader sound pallet.

Whereas Pixel Wave Embrace was shaped by a glacial feel, Project Nautilus zeroes in on keygen melodies and video game noises. Yamaneko exaggerates this chiptune aesthetic to unsettling effects, best showcased in the form of coin-collecting sounds emerging from Eastern European pattern over a mad techno beat on ‘Rushing the Ice Palace’. Despite the flat-sounding nature of most of these noises, Yamaneko manages to create a unique sense of space in his arrangements – achieved through reverb (on the arpeggiated slow burner ‘Blitter’ are an example) and constantly zooming in and out on their many details (‘Accela Crash’).
