The first proper LP by Yalls, titled United, will drop on May 6th. It is being released as a limited 12” on clear vinyl + digitally. Pre-order yours now.
Over the past few years, Berkeley-based songwriter/producer Dan Casey (better known as Yalls) has issued everything from sun-kissed synth-pop to quirky hip-hop instrumentals, glitched excursions of post-aughts soul, to tropical-tinged, vocal-led boom-bap. He has regularly delivered immersive one-offs, inventive remixes, and guitar based works under his own name, Casey has built a reputation as a producer who may be hard to pin down in exact terms, but is always reliable for delivering delicious hooks and poignant melodies.
United, the first proper full-length album by Yalls, is a cohesive amalgamation of the sound Casey has been exploring. It combines elements of mid-60’s funk, modern experimental beatmaking, and pop music - firmly placing the listener in a unique space somewhere between defunct dance halls and outer space.

Yalls just dropped a new mixtape called Freak Stance, which is released in advance of his new LP due out in early 2014. Sit down with it and enjoy the trip.
Check out this new ambient EP by Yalls titled Sewn Up. The tracks were made for himself to relax to during very intense times; “making music to make yourself feel better is pretty much the point.” You can download it via bandcamp. Pick up his limited edition Fantasy 7” here as well.
A new Yalls track has recently been released into the wild, listen to “Lifestylist” below. It’s a burbling, tranquil trip - and we love it. Look out for a new Yalls LP in early 2014, and grab the Fantasy 7” right here.

Our good friend Dan Casey (aka Yalls) recently re-named his solo guitar-centric project and announced the debut album Empty City. The record will drop in October on the very excellent Ceremony Recordings. In addition to premiering the lead single on NPR’s All Songs Considered, he also spoke with IMPOSE about the project. We have all heard bits and pieces of demos over the past year, but let me promise you that this is an album you won’t want to miss.
