ABOUT YETI OUT
YETI OUT is a creative collective that originated in London & now primarily based in Shanghai & Hong Kong. What started as club nights & warehouse parties lead to debuting artists like Young Guru, DJ Sliink and Soulection to Asia's club circuit. Constantly pushing the envelope in Asia's underground music scene & with the collective on both sides of the Atlantic, YETI DJs draw influences from left field oddities to future bass, grime, ratchet rap and everything in between while linking East & West.
To celebrate the bridge between street fashion and urban music, ICNY teamed up with Shanghai via Hong Kong music collective YetiOut on curating a Mixtape best representing this Spring’s touring cities. With genre blending beats from artist’s leading lights in their own respected cities, oriental samples from Beijing’s Howie Lee are mixed with Sino Grime from Shanghai’s Swimful and back to Shy Guy’s sub heavy New York soundscapes, mirroring ICNY’s own influences.
The half hour music journey takes us around South East Asia with tracks that serve equally well as space-out public-transit vibe magnets to club-ready grinding fuel. Keep your ears out for more frequencies from Yeti Out at the three ICNY parties spanning Shanghai, Singapore and Taiwan this May.
