Hailing from Melbourne’s Inner-West, the pair comprising of Yanni Nair and Simon Salerno are a DJ/Production collision course with undeniable far-reaching appeal. Influences cited from Chromeo to Earth, Wind and Fire and Girltalk to George Benson; the boys integrate elements of their preferred music styles to then stamp it with their signature flair. Self-proclaimed as falling under the Disco/Funk/French-house barrier, Yasumo are causing dance-floor antics by simply, ‘Putting our own spin on the music we love…’
There is no denying that two minds are better than one, especially when those two minds individually hold an instinctive artistic force and natural musicality. Yasumo support and further exceed this theory with releases on Onelove, Sweat It Out! and Vicious, remixes for Detroit-vinyl-extraordinaire Arthur Baker and radio airplay across the high seas of England and France. Track after track of the Yasumo brand continue to appear on online music store charts - Constantly supplementing their growing impact on the scene. Their stylistically diverse selection of sounds each brings a realm of sonic brilliance to the fore.
Having supported the likes of international heavyweights Ducksauce, Busy P, Sebastian, Flight Facilities and Sebastian Tellier – The duo are only just getting started. Accolades also coming their way from Nick Catchdubs (Fools Gold Co-owner), Aeroplane, Tommie Sunshine, Jay-J and The Aston Shuffle.
A solid residency at Mynt Lounge’s Boombox Saturday’s and Australia-wide guest spots across the country, Nair and Salerno are also making headway on a larger scale. Major stages at dance-music-festival’s such as Parklife, Future Music Festival and Summadayze solidifying their stance.
Most recently, the boys Dirty Laundry, ‘Love is Crazy’ mix hit #7 on the Aria Club Chart. Taking the coveted opening track slot on Onelove’s latest compilation, ‘Miami 2012’. With an array of originals and yet another Onelove remix on the cusp there is no denying such an unparalleled vibe.
