Kieku Records banging first of the two releases is YIP DECEIVER from Atherns, Georgia, US with the song “Local Business”.
"The song was written as Luther Vandross/Anita Baker style thing but mutated with production into something completely different thanks to Jonas. The lyrics are a nod to the complexity of modern game while still emulating a classic love song theme. There's special guest keyboard solo in the bridge by JoJo Glidewell from of Montreal to spice it up too."
As members of the indie rock group Of Montreal, Davey Pierce and Nicolas Dobbratz have been known to play funky, glam-influenced indie disco, but with their own project Yip Deceiver, they go full electro and full dancefloor. With both members influenced by '80s synth pop plus artists like Prince, Luther Vandross, and Chaka Khan, Yip Deceiverwas born when Davey and Dobby were en route to an Of Montreal gig. An Usher song came on the radio, they both sang along enthusiastically, and the sheer joy they felt became the inspiration for a new project that would be more synth and dance-oriented. With Davey as "sonic lovechild" and Dobby as "executive vibes manager," the lighthearted group played its first show on New Year's Eve 2010 at the 40 Watt club in Athens, Georgia. A year later, the group's self-titled debut EP landed on Dobby's label, Aerobic International. Their debut album, Medallius, followed in 2013 on the New West label and featured the single "Get Strict." The duo toured the U.S. extensively for the next couple years, and in September 2015 issued a split single with Ruby the Rabbitfoot which had them covering Jennifer Paige's '90s hit, "Crush." It was closely followed by the EP YPD, which included "Red Line," co-written and produced by Harlan Silverman (Mayer Hawthorne, RØMANS).
