Daniel Holmes and Tofu Resistance teaming up for 7“

split 7“ vinyl // 45 rpm
325 numbered copies : shoplink

“Madonna a dítě (II)” by Daniel Holmes shows off with its stumbling percussion. The vocal sample from an old czechoslovakian record darkens the sky for a second before the organic grooving bass meets synthesizers and beats to illuminate the shade and leads us to a brighter and powerful climax.

“The Awakened“ by Tofu Resistance combines formidable beat skills and soothing instrumentation with a poem of empowerment. Slow grooves and peachy synths accompany a pounding mouth harp and a sample of Alicia Keys voice repeating, “if war is holy?”.

Both tracks previously released in our free digital download series ynFree.

“If war is holy and sex is obscene,
we’ve got it twisted in this lucid dream.“

We are thrilled to welcome our friend and collaborator Tofu Resistance to our free download series with a very unique, powerful and expressive arrangement. “The Awakened“ combines formidable beat skills and soothing instrumentation with a poem of empowerment that makes you wonder and think about our current status of equality of gender, race or nationality.

Die Geschichte befindet sich in einem Tropfen, gefallen vom juengsten Blatt. Offene Synapsen verfolgen seinen Weg. Mancheiner schliesst seine Augen, mancheiner streckt seine Zunge (zum Fang in die Flugbahn) … “You need friends, not Diskos”-Servicemitarbeiter kuemmern sich um seine planmaeszige Reise!

Wann & Wo wird er aufprallen? Welche Geschichte befindet sich in ihm? Wieviele Tropfen fielen vom juengsten Blatt? Befinden wir uns selbst in ihm? Reite seine Welle und finde!

for our international lovers (YNFND in ENGLiSH)

YNFND, born out of an artist collective, event organisation & friendship, this small baltic DIY label is known for its eclectic blend of organic and electronic tunes. Focusing on colorful productions beside the mainstream, YNFND acts as source of inspiration for alternative ways of making & publishing music. Nowadays based around Rostock and Berlin, they are also busy as a booking agency and musical network for artist from all around the world.


Seit November 2004 initiieren umtriebig-musikfanatische Freigeister unter dem Deckmantel `youneedfriends-notdiskos´ Konzerte, Parties und andere kulturelle Forschung in & um Rostock. Abseits von Kommerz – hinseits dem Frisch, dem Neu, dem Geborgenen, dem Unbekannten … Unter dem `Regenschirm´ (welcher für `ynfnd´ wappiert) fanden seither unzählig-karätige Shows in diversen liebevoll bestückten Locationen statt – und in der Regel supported by your favourite YNDiskofriends, sprich : die parallel betriebene Brutpflege im eigenen Stall wuchs mit.

Seit 2010 wird Butter bei die Fische beigemacht: YNFND projeziert sich als RECORD LABEL in die Landschaft.
