Ying n Yang – Black Hawk Down
Jake Stanford ( Dj ) and Jake Osei-Tutu ( Drummer ) are Birmingham based Breakbeat duo Ying n Yang. The 2 Jakes joined forces 18 months ago. Jake ( Dj ) is the main man you will see out playing at nights but if Ying n Yang are booked for a live gig along comes Jake ( Drummer ) with his drumkit and adds a certain extra wallop! It’s kind of like a battle, decks vs drums. The winner of the battle being the punters who get to stomp along to the crazyness that is caused by their want to leave it all on the line.
The 2 Jakes also have a night in Birmingham called Eargasm where the likes of A-Skillz, Mafia Kiss, Pimpsoul, Breaksjunky and Se7en Deadly Breaks have all rocked up to do their thing. The night has taken a bit of a back burner as the music work has taken a lead roll but having spoke to Jake Stanford there maybe some plans in the pipeline to rock Birmingham once again!
The track above is some solo work from Jake ( Dj ). A grimey bass filled Breaks track with a Lil Kim sample added for extra flavour and it’s yours now for free. What are you waiting for!
Recently being signed to Utah Saints label Sugarbeat, Ying n Yang have an upcoming ep that is due for release on the 19th May called The Rising Monkey. One not to be missed! The mix below, also a free download was put up on Soundcloud a month ago and it gives you a little taste of what Ying n Yang are about.
