Dutch duo Jim Taihuttu and Nils Ronhuis have been steadily rising year on year as Yellow Claw. Though the third member, MC Bizzeey, left in 2016, the duo has continued to find success. They often don’t allow themselves to be confined in one box, floating between genres with ease and cementing their place across the electronic music industry. Yellow Claw seamlessly incorporate elements of hardstyle, hip-hop, trap, dubstep with moombahton — a fusion of house and reggaeton.

Since 2014, they’ve run their own label, Barong Family, which has seen 600 releases over six years. Their four albums have also charted to success with 2017’s ‘Los Amsterdam’, in particular, standing out for its uniqueness. Their latest album, 'Never Dies', continues their tried-and-tested formula. Bringing the likes of Tinashe, Fatman Scoop and Migos' Offset, the guest features helped elevate the project and further confirm their propensity to envision collaborations that many can't conceive.
