One of my favorite things as a blogger is showing you guys new, up and coming artists. Sure, this means that we have to sift through a lot of emails and search countless hours on soundcloud, but at the end of the day I think its worth it. The latest musician that we’d like to introduce you guys to is guy who goes by YUS. Originally from Brussels, Belgium, YUS is now based out in Phoenix, Arizona where he spends most of his time tuning his craft and constructing melodic, downtempo beats like the pair that I’m sharing with you today. Having an ear for percussion, YUS seems to try and bring a great deal of percussion to his remixes, which leaves the originals he alters sound significantly more complex and suspenseful Listen to his edits of The Dø and James Blake and we think that you’ll agree!
