Yellow Claw, made up of the Amsterdam duo Jim Aasgier (Jim Taihuttu) and Nizzle (Nils Rondhuis), has been a well-known name in the industry for years. They first began their rise to fame way back in 2010 as a trio, after hosting a night party at the Jimmy Woo, one of Amsterdam’s most famous nightclubs. In 2012 and 2013 they released a slew of successful singles, which charted on the Dutch and Belgian national charts. In 2013, they signed with Diplo‘s Mad Decent label, which helped launch them to international fame. In 2016, the trio became a duo, but that has not slowed Yellow Claw down. They have since released several successful singles and two studio albums as well as performed at major festivals around the world, including on the main stage at the iconic Tommorowland festival in Belgium.
This week’s Spin it Back Saturday takes it back to 2013 with Yellow Claw’s legendary “DJ Turn it Up.” Check it out below.
This track is a club staple, a classic twerk-inspiring banger – fitting, since the name of the 2013 EP from which it came is titled Amsterdam Twerk Music.
You can catch Yellow Claw for a Release Pool Party at Talking Stick Resort on Saturday, June 16. Grab your tickets here.
