Ghana-born, London-bred, now Berlin-based Yazzus is a DJ/Producer with a love of high-energy, bounce-amplified dance music spanning different textures and tempos. Taking inspiration from the early 90’s hardcore rave scene and other various sources such as video games, she has formed a hard and forward-facing contemporary sound, colliding fast techno, gabber, ghettotech and more. Since her move to Berlin, she has expanded and formulated her high-speed/laced-with-groove affinity by joining the seminal underground queer party Mala Junta as their latest resident.
From the strong self-released catalogue of her famous edits on Bandcamp to her sets, you will find chopped samples, hypnotic basslines and infectious energy, earning a DJ Mag Best of British nomination for Breakthrough Producer in 2020. She has released on Mad Decent’s sub-label Good Enuff, delivered a four-track rave-ready EP on Steel City Dance Discs and most recently the iconic Tresor Records, showcasing her modus operandi of black techno. You can even find her on remix duty for the likes of Aluna, Kelly Lee Owens, Baltra and GLOR1A.
