Mix Of The Day: Yolanda Be Cool

Share

motd-yolandabecool

In a world of inflated egos and outrageous demands, Yolanda Be Cool, aka Bondi boys Andy and Matt, have kept their feet on the ground and let their music do the talking.

Naturally, they’ll never be able to escape their success of their breakthrough track, We No Speak Americano, with the catchy little number shifting over five million copies and amassing a staggering 200 million views on Youtube but, they are however far more than a one hit wonder.

Their critically acclaimed album Ladies and Mentalmen released on Sweat It Out / DIM MAK saw them team up with indigenous Australian icon Gurrumul, house royalty Crystal Waters and Barbara Tucker, soul legend Betty Wright and US rap upstart Nola Darling. 2015 saw them get back in the studio with Americano collaborator DCUP and lead to the release of their platinum selling single, Sugar Man, before they swiftly followed that up with summer anthem, Soul Makossa (Money).

As at home playing in front of 90,000 people in Morocco as a guest of the king as they are in a small basement, we know just how difficult it can be balancing  underground cool with poppier sensibilities. It’s a rare combination and why they constantly surprise with their eclectic, house enthused DJ sets. So with a bag of tunes on the pipeline for the coming year we thought we’d invite them to work their magic for us and our Mix Of The Day series.

Check out their efforts below.

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
