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.
