What started as a way of exploring the gap between Hip Hop and EDM turned

out to be a successful concept at the night club Jimmy Woo in Amsterdam

and developed into one of the most surprisingly refreshing DJ projects the

world has seen in a while. A big part of the Yellow Claw success are their all

round trademark skills, interaction with the audience, music videos, a

clothing line, their own record label and a sound that crosses boundaries and

mixes up genres. This signature sound has led to lots of impressive

collaborations with artists such as Diplo, Flux Pavilion, Skrillex, Waka Flocka,

Pusha T, Martin Garrix, DJ Mustard, Ty Dolla $ign and Tiesto.

In 2014 Yellow Claw toured all around the globe, playing primetime gigs on

the biggest stages like EDC Vegas, Tomorrowland and mainstage

Mysteryland. In between this exploding gig schedule they also managed to

set up a fast selling apparel line in cooperation with streetwear label Daily

Paper, 'Blood for Mercy'. In May 2014, they inaugurated their Barong Family

record label. Playing alongside Skrillex and Diplo's Jack U at Madison Square

Garden on New Year's Eve has probably been the best way to end the 2014.

With that being said, 2015 turned out even more successful with a global

festival circuit and hostings. Yellow Claw were hitting stages in the speed of

a heartbeat. They kicked off the year with Future Music Festival in multiple

Australia's cities, followed by spring breakers' beloved Ultra Miami along with

California's annual trend-setting festival Coachella. For the ultimate summer

celebration they joined Spring Awakening festival in Chicago and EDC Las

Vegas. Yellow Claw hosted two huge stages alongside the most prominent

artists in the business at European festivals, such as Holland's very own

Kingsday Festival and Tomorrowland, where together with other Barong

Family artists they stole the spotlight and made ravers go wild. Besides the

busy festival schedule, Yellow Claw were successfully ruling their residency at

prestigious Wynn Las Vegas nightclubs and producing new tracks.

In November they delivered a highly anticipated and sharp sound full-length

album 'Blood For Mercy' on Mad Decent followed by a massive US tour. The

release, which features world famous guest appearances, has been

internationally taking over album charts. It went straight to #1 in Billboard

Heatseekers Albums Chart and Billboard's Top Dance & Electronic Albums,

and also reached #3 in the Beatport Top 10 Releases.

The list of Yellow Claw's achievements continues with a track "In My Room",

which was made in partnership with DJ Mustard, Ty Dolla $ign and Tyga and

has already been viewed 2.2 million times on YouTube.
