Brace yourself. If “Invitation” is any indication, Yellow Claw’s second full-length album, Los Amsterdam—set for release April 7 on Mad Decent—might take over the summer. A steady, pulsating beat, rhythmic chimes and hypnotic vocals from 17-year-old ingenue Yade Lauren set the pace on the first single from the new collection. There’s a good chance you’ll hear “Invitation” and catch its inviting vibes when the Dutch duo takes control for consecutive Friday night gigs at Intrigue.
Jim Aasgier and Nizzle dubbed their latest output Los Amsterdam because it was created in both their native Netherlands home and their stateside headquarters, LA. “Good Day,” featuring DJ Snake and Elliphant, shows off diverse influences, with ’80s-style synth lines, vintage drum sounds and tweaked and twisted vocal lines forming modern melodies. Other guest appearances on the 13-track record include Sophie Simmons, The Galaxy, Moksi, Juicy J, Lil Debbie, GTA, Quavo and Tinie Tempah. Rest assured, Yellow Claw won’t be the only DJs spinning these songs all summer long.
Yellow Claw at Intrigue at Wynn Las Vegas, March 17 & 24.
