Happy backwards, Yppah is the music project of Long Beach, CA-via-Texas producer and multi-instrumentalist Joe Corrales Jr. Over three albums on the esteemed Ninja Tune label, Yppah has become a KEXP favorite with his lush and psychedelically welcoming sound that uniquely blends downtempo, shoegaze, post-rock, soul, and pop into his own immersive style. An artist with a sharp ear and a deep knowledge of music history, Yppah's Midnight In A Perfect World beautifully mirrors his own eclectic, enveloping sound as he unearths countless dusty, analogue-heavy gems from his collection.
