Yellow Claw’s former third member Bizzey departed from the all-star Amsterdam trap trio in June of 2016. His withdrawal from the group was motivated by familial reasons; Bizzey attributed his retirement from Yellow Claw at the time to his desire to “spend more time with his wife and young son.”
Two-years later, it seems that Bizzey has remained just that — busy. The Yellow Claw alumnus took to Facebook on January 12 to announce the release of his debut solo album, due out on February 16. Entitled November, the album will expectedly feature music in Bizzey’s native Dutch language, given the album announcement in Dutch.
Amalgamating reggae, dancehall, and soca with electronic music, Noise Cans is here with his debut EP. The Bermudian producer has already released “No War,” and subsequently Yellow Claw’sremix of the track, which is also featured on the six-track compilation. While each track has its own distinct style, the one characteristic tying the album together is the upbeat energy pulsing through each track. Noise Cans joins the ranks of anonymous masked producers, with little being known about him other than the fact he is Bermudian.
Noise Cans commented on Masquerave.
“When creating this EP, I wanted to put together a body of work that included the core (my Caribbean culture) and touches of electronic and modern sounds that I’ve grown to love today, creating, to me, the perfect marriage.”
The title of Yellow Claw’s latest single seems to be somewhat of a rhetorical question. “DO YOU LIKE BASS?” is a stomping number that has been a constant staple of the Amsterdam based DJ duo’s recent sets, woven into Yellow Claw’s EDC Las Vegas set and more recently functioning as the centerpiece of their Electric Zoo set.
“DO YOU LIKE BASS” is an extension of the bass heavy vibrations of Yellow Claw’s second full-length album, Los Amsterdam. The capitalized title indicative of the intensity brought by the track, as it relies on gritty bass lines at its drop, touches of sirens, and a voiceover style that those acquainted with Yellow Claw’s two most recent mixtapes, ten and eleven, will recognize as being inherent to the duo’s style. “DO YOU LIKE BASS” is a slamming installment in the Los Amsterdam producers’ perpetual conquest for harder hitting, booming bass beats.
Anonymous beat maker Noise Cans recently released “No War” featuring vocal support from Jamaica’s Jesse Royal by way of Steve Aoki‘s Dim Mak imprint. The producer, also an affiliate of Jillionaire’s Feel Up Records family, lays down the groundwork for Yellow Claw’s latest remix, offering the Dutch duo the perfect canvas for their high octane sound. Yellow Claw weave their signature high energy jungle synths and rumbling basslines into the track, giving it an electric and upbeat break juxtaposed with Royal’s vocal work.
“No War” is the second single off of Noise Cans’ forthcoming Masquerave EP. The original piece, a mellow, island inspired reggae hybrid gets flipped on its head as the Barong Family production pair give it their best festival tent treatment with a double dose of fist pump.

Right when it feels like festival season is just beginning, Voodoo Music and Arts Experience announces a stacked lineup to close out the season this October 27-29. The New Orleans-based festival is described as “a musical gumbo stirring together music, art, community, cuisine and all the mystery and adventure that Halloween weekend in New Orleans conjures up. In addition to more than 65 bands over three days, Voodoo also hosts interactive and immersive large-scale art installations.”
DJ Snake and Yellow Claw’s “Ocho Cinco” from the Parisian producer’s debut album Encore has seen its fair share of remixes. 27 of them to be exact. The stand out remix in the package comes at the hands of up-and-comer Dirty Audio who instilled the mix with his own barrage of dirty dubstep drops and mayhem-making rhythms. The resulting output is undoubtedly destined for Main Stage festival adoption. And may even surpass the original’s appeal on big sound systems for bigger crowds. This one is mean.
