Yellow Claw Rock Two Sold Out Nights in Los Angeles

This post was originally published on this site

Dutch trap-house duo Yellow Claw just rocked two almost sold-out nights in Los Angeles last week at the legendary Hollywood Palladium. It’s been an interesting ride for Yellow Claw since the release of their fantastic debut album, Blood for Mercy, last November. Despite huge appearances all over the world, including this year’s edition of EDC Las Vegas, longtime member MC Bizzey left the group just after EDC.

Thankfully for fans, the now-duo did not miss a beat at their Friday night performance. MOKSI was warming up the crowd when I arrived at the venue. The Dutch duo’s upbeat bass-house was the perfect opener for Yellow Claw. The crowd was gyrating hard when they dropped their new collaboration with DJ Snake, “Pigalle.” The main act was up next and the crowd was treated to a barrage of spinning lights and CO2 on stage. Yellow Claw’s fans were out in full force on Friday night, I saw tons of custom made Yellow Claw t-shirts, some reading Yellow Claw California Crew. Over the course of an hour, the crowd was treated to an energetic set of trap, electro, and even some hardstyle. Standout cuts included their two smash collabs from Blood for Mercy, “Catch Me” with Flux Pavilion and “In My Room,” with DJ Mustard, Ty Dolla $ign and Tyga. Classic Yellow Claw tracks such as “Till it Hurts,” “Slowdown” and “DJ Turn it Up” also had the crowd swaying, and of course chanting “Yellow motherf***ing Claw.”

Next up for Yellow Claw will be a worldwide tour in support of their new Barong Family Album. A collection of tracks from many of the artists who supported their Palladium show including Cesqeaux, LNY TNZ and Mike Cervello. The album, available for free download on Soundcloud, features tracks from those artists, Yellow Claw themselves, as well as others such as Wiwek and San Holo. The tour will start in Asia on September 7 before returning for more US dates including New York, Detroit, and Dallas. The tour will wrap up in October with some European dates.

DJ Snake Focused On One Thing For His Debut Album: Making Hits

This post was originally published on this site

When DJ Snake puts his mind to something, you can bet he’s going to do it.

Make the #1 song in the world and break records with Major Lazer on “Lean On”? Done.
Put out five consecutive platinum singles? Done.
Put out a collaboration with Justin Bieber on his debut album and have it reach #1 on iTunes in less than 12 hours? Done.

The French musician, DJ, composer and producer best known as DJ Snake has just put out his debut album, Encore, and with it has shattered expectations and blown away competition as quickly as could be expected of one of the biggest hit-makers in EDM.

The album features massive collaborations with Skrillex, Bipolar Sunshine, Moksi, Yellow Claw, Justin Bieber, Migos, Swizz Beats, and more, and it really doesn’t disappoint in any fashion.

Now, this isn’t the forward-thinking EDM album that critics at Pitchfork are looking for, not in any shape or form; and if you go into this album thinking so, you’re going to be disappointed. However, if you’ve been listening to DJ Snake for the past couple of years and have been able to tune into what he’s good at – making hits – you’re going to have this album on repeat for weeks.

Of the 14 tracks on the album, four had already been released as singles – “Middle,” “Talk,” “Ocho Cinco,” and “Propaganda.” Of the remaining 10, collaborations with Moksi and Skrillex had already been rinsed plenty on the festival circuit. You could say that the remaining 8 are just filler, but you’d be so wrong. Every track on this album has the potential to fight for the Top 10 on Billboard or iTunes, and two have already breached the top 10 on the latter.

The album, more than just a collection of singles, actually feels like a complete album. By the time that it’s over, you feel satisfied, satiated, complacent… yet you know next time you open the metaphorical fridge that is your music library, you’re going to look for that same meal and devour it once again, just as ravenously.
