Part-time tram driver and full-time disco disciple, Helsinki’s Jaakko Eino Kalevi catalyzes street smart funk into heat stroke for Yin Yang Theatre, his new EP on Beats In Space Records.
The title of Yin Yang Theatre came to Kalevi as an epiphany while dining in Washington Heights on a stateside holiday. “I was feeling bad about something and I thought that speaking out would be the solution. Almost immediately, I realized that confrontation is not the solution for every situation. The right balance is a combination of both: confrontation and patience. Yin Yang Theatre as a metaphor of life.”
The undulating analog ode to Greece of “Tecno Souvlaki” and “Let the Energy Be Your Teacher (Part 1)” explore even softer rocking inflections of Jaakko’s work at the top of side B before “XO-Tic Grlz”, a percussive deconstruction of “Pass the Cat”, quickens the EP from an introspective to extroverted finale.
Each 12″ on Beats in Space Records features original artwork in considerate and serial form. Hiroaki Koshiba, a frequent collaborator who paints during Jaakko’s live performances, composed Yin Yang Theatre’s artwork in similar practice. The 12″ packaging constructed by Will Work For Good features a removable vinyl BIS logo cling.
