A Chat With Juliyaa

posted by on 31/03/2013

Last year Juliyaa dropped her debut EP ‘Stars & Dragons’ and on bank holiday Monday (1st April 2013) she’s headlining a live showcase for the project at Richmix where she’ll be joined by special guests: Wilson, Nick Brewer, Dionne Reid and DJ Ace of BBC 1xtra! Today I rock up at the rehearsal studios where she’s rehearsing with a full live band, backing vocalists and a couple violinists to boot! We discuss her debut EP and her upcoming live show as well as her upbringing in a half Welsh and half Ghanaian household.

A Conversation With Jacob Banks

“Everyone has been talking about me?” Jacob Banks asks with a shy, yet playful smile. He knows he is good, but his confidence comes with the humility of a newbie to the music scene and the earnestness of a genuinely nice guy.  Sitting down with the 21-year old Birmingham native in the aftermath of his EP launch and a successful BBC Radio 1Xtra Live Lounge performance, we find out about his first introduction to music, using cartoons as muses and the making of The Monologue EP while shining the spotlight on the emerging soul star.

You’ve already seen most of these photographs on the last site, sadly this piece of content had a time limit on it since the limited collection came out a few weeks ago. We wanted to show you how our own styled shoots will translate across to this new layout in future. So here’s our H&M x Brick Lane Bikes shoot from a couple weeks back, looks much sexier on here as opposed to the traditional blog format, right? RIGHT?

#YYV3 – Boxpark

posted by on 25/03/2013

On a chilly Thursday in February, Yin & Yang celebrated our (then) upcoming launch of Version 3.0 with a night at Boxpark, in Shoreditch – east London. More than just a launch party, we took the night as an opportunity for Yin & Yang to be seen, and heard, in the ‘physical world’.

Welcome to #YYV3

Thank you. Thank you. You’re far too kind for waiting so long, can we get encore before y’all start reading the post. Press play. After a two month hiatus/hibernation, we’re back. Notice the new new? It’s finally ready and bug free (we hope). Y&Y 3.0 is here, the best iteration yet – mobile friendly, cleaner, led by our own content as opposed to curation. More on the flip side.
