UMEK Is Back On His 1605 Imprint with Two-Track “Cybernetic Implant” EP

6AM Guest Mix: Yamil

Born and raised in Spain, Yamil has been delivering high-quality House and Deep House music for the last couple of years, making him a name in this industry and having his music being played at mayor clubs and festivals around the globe

Yamil is in a state of creative grace. His releases on influential labels such as MoBlack, Solar Distance, Sudam, Madorasindahouse, King Street, Radiant and LNDKHN are the best proof of it, most of them have placed themselves on the first positions of Beatport and Traxsource’s Top 100 sales charts.

Most recently, the Spanish producer decided to step forward in his career with the creation of his own label Pieces Of Life, with which he will release his first LP, being the label’s first reference. Under the title of “POL Talks” Yamil has reflected “something unique and different, deeper than my usual sound. A journey in which each track tells a different story but giving sense toone ensemble” he says. In fact, the idea of creating the label Pieces Of Life is motivated precisely to unleash all his creativity, without imposed restrictions or limitations by the dominant trends.

We grabbed a chat with Yamil as he delivers this week’s Guest Mix.
