[ Sub Pop / CD ]
Release Date: Friday 22 June 2018
Despite being stuck in his bedroom in the city of Jacksonville, the 27-year-old Yuno's pedigree is diverse. His parents are from the UK, and of Jamaican descent, and his musical upbringing involved a wide array of discovery mainly as a result of being part of his local skateboarding subculture. That's what got him into music: hanging out with friends at their now abandoned mall, going to the skate shop, playing Tony Hawk's Pro Skater video games, watching skate videos, and listening to all the music featured therein.
Yuno creates all his of music alone at home, self-producing and engineering, playing all the instruments. He also shoots all of his own press photos, design's his album art and directs his music videos.
Sub Pop found Yuno via Ishmael Butler of Shabazz Palaces and Digable Planets fame, who's on the A&R staff for the label. He stumbled upon Yuno on Soundcloud and kept a close eye on him. Similar to Ish, Yuno is encouraged by the genre-bending age of melody we're living through, citing Lil Uzi Vert and Young Thug as sources of influence.
