Yellow Claw & Cesqeaux 'Legends' EP Out Today

"Yellow Claw are true legends of the trap game right now and if the aptly titled lead single is to be taken at face value, the Legends EP is going to pack a serious punch to the fertile remits of global trap music." - Dancing Astronaut

"The four-track Legends EP boasts some big (read: enormous) trap and bass sounds all heavily influenced by Dutch house and hard dance traditions. As a result, Yellow Claw shows once again that they prefer to approach bass music not by surpassing the field at their own game, but rather by offering their interpretation of popular trap stylings and sonic elements seen through the filter of their Amsterdam upbringings, making for a sound that is uniquely theirs and undeniably powerful." - LessThan3

Hot off the success of their recent Mad Decent EP Amsterdam Trap Music Vol. 2, Dutch trio Yellow Claw return with their new EP for Dim Mak Records, Legends, a collaboration with newcomer Cesqeaux. Legends showcases the multi-faceted production capabilities of the group, with guest appearances from Kalibwoy and Roendy to boot. The gritty, dancehall-infused video for "Legends" featuring Kalibwoy has already amassed almost 450k views in just one month. 

With an eclectic musical career including explorations in trap, hardstyle, electro, hip-hop and moombahton, Yellow Claw have touted their signature brassy sound across the globe, performing at festivals including Tomorrowland, Tomorrowworld and Made In America. They have released music on influential imprints Dim Mak, Mad Decent, Spinnin’ Records, Fool’s Gold and Ultra Records, and have remixed major artists such as Tiësto, Iggy Azalea, Martin Garrix, Headhunterz, Showtek and Major Lazer. The video for their recent single "Shotgun" has garnered over 28 million views.
