Yellow Claw & Shachi Join Forces on “Hey Sensei”



The beloved Dutch electronic icons Yellow Claw are known for their thumping club records that have fueled dance floors for almost a decade. Now, hot on the heels of their incredible ¥€$ studio album as €URO TRA$H, the iconic Dutch duo teams up with Japanese female rapper Shachi for their Bilingual Fusion of Trap and Hip-Hop “Hey Sensei.”

“We met up with Shachi when we did a show in Tokyo. Airdropped her the beat, and she sent us the vocals a couple of days later. All the Japanese lyrics are really like a painting with words to us. We don’t know what they mean, but they sound so good.” Yellow Claw

“Hey Sensai” is a dynamic and party-ready fusion of trap and hip-hop. It demonstrates the Barong Family head honchos’ genre-bending style as they incorporate everything from xylophone solos to mechanical synths and rhythmic basslines. Shachi’s sultry but hard-hitting vocals bridge the gap between trap and hip-hop music genres, and the mixture of English and Japanese adds a unique element that creates vivid imagery throughout the sonic journey. Yellow Claw can always be relied on for music that shakes things up, and “Hey Sensei” is a prime example. “Hey Sensei” is out now on Barong Family.
