Early Years

Corrales began playing guitar and bass in rock bands during high school, and later became more involved in electronic music and turntablism. He was involved in the early creation of mashups, and was part of a turntablist group called The Truth. Yppah is influenced by shoegaze, various electronic music, psychedelic soul, and rock music, evidenced by heavy use of reverb, effects, and electronics.

You Are Beautiful At All Times

His first album, titled You Are Beautiful at All Times, was released in 2006 on Ninja Tune records.[2] The single "Again With The Subtitles" was released immediately prior to the album, and is featured in the film, 21. "It's Not The Same," a song from the album, was used in a trailer for Alone in the Dark, as well as the episode Last Resort from House. Similarly, the song "In Two, the Weakly" is featured in the CSI episode Ending Happy.

They Know What Ghost Know

They Know What Ghost Know released on May 18, 2009, in the UK, Japan and Australia. U.S. release date was June 23, 2009.[3] Released to positive reviews, the album has a more pronounced shoegaze and psychedelic sound with "lush" instrumentation.[4] The album crosses into numerous genres, with NME associating it with other DJ-based albums[5] while other reviewers referring to it as "big beat".[6]

Eighty One

Eighty One released on February 4, 2012 in Japan and April 2, 2012 worldwide to critical acclaim. Eighty One is Yppah's most widely received album to date, with the singles "Film Burn" (feat. Anomie Belle) and "D Song" (feat. Anomie Belle) charting on radio stations across North America and Japan.[7] Eighty One features several guest appearances by Seattle artist Anomie Belle who Corrales met when the two artists performed together on tour with Bonobo. Anomie Belle has also appeared with Yppah during live performances, performing on guitar, keys, violin, drum machine and vocals in support of the album.[8]

Tiny Pause

On October 22, 2012, Corrales announced that the fourth album is almost complete, spanning 11 tracks so far.[9][10] The final album was cut down to nine tracks and was officially released October 16, 2015.
