George van den Broek, better known as Yellow Days, has described his music, found here on his third (very) long player, as “upbeat existential millennial crisis music”. That’s not a bad description, but it fails to properly account for the free-ranging Funk, Soul, and Jazz Fusion ebullience that seeps out throughout the near hour and twenty of ‘A Day in a Yellow Beat’. The influence of a much longer running party is on consistent show here in a form that is part nostalgia, part homage, and part retro kitsch frill. The flow rarely breaks, despite the numerous interludes, though the incongruous Hip Hop tangent of ‘!’ featuring Bishop Nehru stands out from the crowd. Whether drawing on Disco, piano Pop or a host of other genres, the slick production and smooth styling never waver and even the Bishop Nehru sidebar is a winner.
