Yolo Biafra came up in the musical hotbed of Sacramento, California's late-90s punk scene. Enthralled as much by disco, pop and hip-hop as by punk's visceral noise attack, in 1996 he and his friends formed seminal dance-punk machine !!! (chk chk chk). For 18 years, he toured and recorded with !!!, playing sax, drums, piano, organ, synth, and all manner of percussion. During the last several years of his time with the band, he stepped into the role of official afterparty DJ. Over the last decade, he's played parties in Australia, France, Germany, UK, Ireland, Norway, Belgium, Macedonia, Croatia, Spain, Portugal, Mexico, Chile, Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, the Philippines, as well as in cities and festivals all over the US. His mixes have been featured on Vice China, self- titled mag's Needle Exchange, and BBC Radio.
Yolo B currently lives in Portland, OR, making music with his electronic/percussion ensemble SDB-HITS, and moving partygoers there and abroad with a smart mix of house/tech/diva/club/acid/disco/leftfield jams.
