Yellow Claw & Cesqeaux Release ‘Legends’ EP + Exclusive Interview
The highly anticipated 4 track collaboration ‘Legends‘ EP by Amsterdam trap stars Yellow Claw and rising Dutch moombahton and trap producer Cesqeaux was just released and it is seriousy going to spread like wild fire. I really hope these guys get together again because this is the best trap I’ve heard in a while. On top of new music, we got an exclusive Q&A with Yellow Claw to go along with it. We asked the trio about their recently released drug PSA themed video for “Techno” with Diplo, LNY TNZ, and Waka Flocka, how the ‘Legends’ EP was born, upcoming collaborations, and tour plans. Read the full interview below.

Yellow Claw Q&A:
FITA: Your latest video for “Techno” with Diplo, LNY TNZ, and Waka Flocka has a powerful message in it about the dangers of recreational drug use. How was the concept for the video developed and what are your thoughts on the final video?
Yellow Claw: We just felt obligated to show the kids out there that it’s not as normal as people may want you to believe. It’s dangerous and we don’t wanna lose our fans man. And all this drugs shit it getting way too normal. We don’t drink and we don’t do drugs but we still party though. Diplo felt the same way and we just kinda went from there.
FITA: Can you tell us about how you first met Cesqeaux and how the collaboration came about?
YC: We met Cesqeaux through a CD he gave us at a gig. We checked it out and immediately heard he had talent. We invited him over to the studio and that’s nearly 3 years ago now!
FITA: I only see 3 announced tour dates coming up in Texas, California, and Canada. Is there a tour in the works and can we expect any shows on the East Coast any time soon?
YC: Absolutely! We’re doing almost 15 dates in 3 weeks. Starting October 30! East Coast included.
FITA: What projects are you working on now and are you collaborating with any other artists? Who would you like to collaborate with in the future?
YC: We just finished our new single with this new girl called Ayden. Beautiful girl with an even more beautiful voice. You’re gonna hear that one really soon! We would love to make something with Young Thug. His voice is so dope and different.
FITA: For the longest time the only image I had seen of you guys was this promo image (top). It portrays you as mysterious and somewhat mystical rather than something like this (bottom) which shows you as regular guys that fans can relate with. What were you trying to convey with the original promo image and has your strategy of how you portray yourselves changed since then?
YC: To be honest, most of the press stuff out there is really boring. We just wanted to create something weird. Hahahaha.
