Three years ago, fellow DJs Jim Aasgier, Nizzle and MC Bizzey teamed up to form the creative and innovative group Yellow Claw. A big part of the Yellow Claw success are their trademark skills, interaction with the audience, their music video’s and a sound that crosses boundaries and mixes up genres.

While independently releasing most of their tracks on Soundcloud with 180K followers to boot, two EPs were released on Diplo’s label Mad Decent, presenting Amsterdam Twerk & Trap music. Along their own big productions, the trio made official remixes for names, such as Tiësto, Iggy Azalea, Martin Garrix, Headhunterz, Showtek and Major Lazer, which in fact made it to the Major Lazer’s remix album.

In November 2013, Yellow Claw released their fifth single ‘Shotgun’. The video reached over 23 million views on Youtube and Spinnin’ Records announced the record’s gold status. Continuing on their succesful releases, Yellow Claw recently presented their popular Mixtape #7 with over 760K plays and yet more to come while they’re working on their debut album, which carries the same name as their brand new capsule collection with Daily Paper, ‘Blood for Mercy’.

With their upcoming debut album and performances at huge festivals such as Tomorrowland, TomorrowWorld and Made in America in sight, Yellow Claw makes one thing clear – they are ready to take over the world.


Um.. consists of two Icon Collective graduates, Dylan Gold and Ben Bruce, who met while at school and started making music together in September of 2014. Making music comes easy to the two who share a belief that there is a creative void in the electronic music space their music can fill.

“We don’t want to follow an abused and over saturated path devoid of any creativity or evolution. We have found a direction that is new, fun and creatively unique, and have a strong collaborative workflow that comes naturally to us which we have found to be extremely rare” says Dylan, 23, continuing, “after moving in together 4 months ago, we have established a sound and brand that we believe is wholly representative of us as people and that can be understood and appreciated by anyone”.

“This project has come together completely organically and we believe it is creatively innovative. Throughout this span we have finished a 5 song EP that represents our sound and energy across 5 different genres of music” adds Ben, 22.

Um..’s first introduction to the public came in December of 2014 with their remix offering of much-hyped producer Awe’s “Griffin” being included in LA powerhouse collective Team Supreme’s Vol. 127 cypher. The guys were in great company grouped with Dubstep legend Plastician, King Henry, Terrorhythm, DJ Pound, Murphy, Lord Olaf, Rainoh Cee Ross, Yung Orca, Lost Midas, NuTrik Ruff Draft, and Nalepa.

“Our music has a playful feeling, while maintaining top level quality production, that’s refreshing in a time where producers take their music too seriously and sacrifice creativity for commercial sounding tracks. We are not interested in following any other artist’s path. We believe in creation without creative boundaries and we demonstrate that through our music. Without saying anything more, I think the music speaks for itself”, says Dylan.

The duo recently played their first live show on New Year’s Eve at Midnight of Eden Festival in Southwen California, and are excited to expand their live show across the US and beyond in 2015.
