🇩🇪 🇵🇪 🇫🇷 🇮🇹 🇷🇺 🇬🇧 🇺🇸 🇳🇱 – Every new episode of YPHOT gives me new challenges: Should I take the flag of the country the artists are living in? Or the one they are born in? Or should I choose it according to the language they speak? I’m happy that I didn’t find a general solution for this, because the purpose of this series is to show you the global diversity. Music is the perfect example that no one can be reduced to a nationality and that there is no need to have unnecessary borders in our minds or elsewhere. Music is communication! Music is community!
This time we have a journey from Germany, to Peru, to France, to Italy, to Russia, to the United Kingdom, to the United States Of America and the Netherlands. Thanks to my awesome Italian co-author Laura and my photographer David (or was it Markus?). Shoutout to Roxana, Guus, Dinko, Jay, Leo, Koshi, David, Gabriel, the Facebook groups Amirap für Fortgeschrittene, Deutschrap für Fortgeschrittene, Franzhacken für Fortgeschrittene and my whole network for sending me all the recommendations. Enjoy YPHOT #5!
Listen to all the music in the playlist YPHOT: YOSCHA PRESENTS HITS OF TOMORROW #5.
🇩🇪 (GER): reezy – Satellit (prod. by reezy)
Reezy is an upcoming superstar from Frankfurt am Main. Lately he’s having multiple club gigs here and I saw him turning up live during the Marvin Game Tour. Make sure to check his Soundcloud for more.
🇵🇪 (PER): A.CHAL – Matrix
This young man was Born in Peru, raised in New York and is now living in Los Angeles. If you haven’t heard his tape „Welcome to GAZI“ do so! The new album „On Gas“ was also released today.
🇫🇷 (FR): Lil taï Z – N’marche pas sur ma paire
I really would like to know how old he is. Only french information can be found about him. I think it’s remarkable that this song really gets me dancing even if it has just a few elements.
🇮🇹 (IT): PRIESTESS – „Maria Antonietta“ (Prod. Ombra & PK)
I would describe this song as a dramatic pink emotion. The French Queen Marie Antoinette got executed by guillotine. Hopefully Priestess doesn’t lose her head as well.
🇷🇺 (RU): FACE – Бляяя Фэйс Вот Ты Флексишь (prod. by hellasketchy)
No Facebook in Russia? But they seem to have summer. No matter – it sounds like eating ice cream, walking bare feet on the sand with the warm sun on the skin and a catchy tune in your ear.
🇬🇧 (GB): Sona – Ginger
Ginger is a British-Nigerian London based artist. If I can see and feel that he s convinced and happy about his own song I can share these emotions. I would sign a petition for more choreos in music videos.
🇩🇪 (GER): Leroy Menace – Headshakin‘ (prod. by Plusma & Leroy Menace)
I’m convinced that this song can be heard world wide. He is from Hamburg.
🇫🇷 (FR): Siboy – Au revoir merci
This song feels like buying a machete, giving away all your belongings, smashing heads with your elbow and leaving civilisation by going into the jungle. And the video looks like that as well.
🇺🇸 (US): Xela – One Chance
In the first draft of this episode this song was not included. But there is so much happiness and positivity that I have to include it. Drake just has to do a Remix and the song will be everywhere.
🇳🇱 (NL): Leafs – Alright ft. Yung Nnelg (prod. Ramiks)
Another one for the summer. I really like the visuals in the video. This episode’s picture of me was taken in the same „desert“ as this video is. Look for „Nationaal Park De Loonse en Drunense Duinen“.
I hope you enjoyed YPHOT #5
