Every now and then you stumble across something special at an unexpected place. Like Gilles Peterson put it five years ago: “Travelling the world on the constant search for the perfect beat, a soulful source has been found in Zagreb where Eddy Meets Yannah have dispatched one of this years most soulful electronic forays. It’s all about Croatia baby!” Indeed there are lots of things happening in the Balkan state. Every year there are over 10 million people spending their holidays at its Adriatic coastline making it one of the most popular tourist regions in Europe. Furthermore Croatia is scheduled to be the next country to join the European Union. And with their critically acclaimed debut “Just Like…” and the follower “Once In A While“ the gifted duo Yannah Valdevit (producer, singer, musician, songwriter, arranger) and Eddy Ramich (producer, arranger, DJ) definitely put Zagreb’s flourishing yet unheard music scene on the map!
After four more great singles and some much praised remixes (of Arthur Verocai, Tania Maria, Elisabeth Shepherd, Bobby Caldwell, etc.) finally the time has come for album number three: “Fiction Jar“!
For Eddy and Yannah one of the main ingredients is music, making it listening to it, insisting on no philosophy about it, simply appreciating it’s existence. After two albums the only natural thing was to make a third one, retrospecting on all aspects of life, fluctuations in music, world politics, hopes, fears, contents, regrets… simple urge to create and and to express, as a child’s urge to play in a park or build a sand castle… or to cry when it falls…
With “Fiction Jar” the duo offers a joyful fusion of sophisticated soul, urban beats and sweet R’n’B harmonies to die for. Guest features include rhyme spitter Capitol A, UK Garage master Zed Bias and Ras T-Weed from the legendary Rockers HiFi (UK).
When we focus strictly to a certain age of our life or person we know closely or have seen only once, we can find something surreal about it. All experiences or emotions we go through are real only at the time of their existence, after it we just store them in our subconsciousness, and as the time goes by they loose their earthly image, turning into some ungraspable sensation. We make our own fiction jar through life, adding ingredients, making it bitter or sweet and even though it’s obvious, it’s still a miracle, each person making a unique one.
