Yellow Claw teases second serving of ‘Amsterdam Trap Music’ series
Between their evocative music videos and relentless pushing of the boundaries of the bass favoring sub-genres, Amsterdam’s Yellow Claw have become a premium specimen of European trap amidst its dips and dives in the limelight. Having recently inaugurated their Barong Family imprint alongside Spinnin Records, the trio returns to Mad Decent armed with the much-anticipated follow-up to their ground-breaking Amsterdam Trap Music EP. Boasting a rare vantage point of global festival durability and genuine credibility on the genre-circuit, volume two of the series is everything and more we have come to love about the unapologetic act. Collaborative duties alongside Diplo, Waka Flocka Flame, Lil Eddie and Beenie Man fail to distract from the raw energy and relentless beat execution that makes this four-track return one of Yellow Claw’s most definitive moments in the spotlight to date. Twists, turns and triplets in tow, Amsterdam Trap Music Vol 2 is already sounding like one of the genre’s most crucial installments of 2014, setting the tone to an all-time-high for the trio amidst an already accomplished summer run.
Release date: July 22
