g.l.o.v.e.s is yama indra from damn arms who are currently on tour with midnight juggernauts and have previously played shows with the likes of klaxons, liars and spank rock.
yama has been working on g.l.o.v.e.s for about nine months now. his sound is probably best described as banging new school electro packed with old school techno and 8-bit references. he is currently preparing an ep that has a lot of collaborations with people that everyone knows and is looking for labels for a worldwide release.
and if you ever wanted to hear the whole story about yama's first name, this is just priceless: 'yama is the hindu & buddhist god of death. he has the same role the grim reaper does in western culture. my dad did too much acid back in the day & in the midst of one such experience he was "visited by a divine being" who instructed him with apparently great authority that i had to be named yama'.
i hope you guys out there don't need to be visited by a divine being to make you want to check out his latest remixes for apache beat from new york and gameboy/gamegirl from melbourne:
apache beat - tropics (g.l.o.v.e.s remix)
gameboy/gamegirl - sweaty wet/dirty damp (g.l.o.v.e.s remix)
watch out for the g.l.o.v.e.s ep as well as an official remix for operator please, i will try my best to keep you updated. until then, keep in mind: all you need is gloves.
