YIYANG (UK) & Ren Phillips – this dynamic production duo have been creating a storm on the house music party scene over the last year, and their stellar reputation comes complete with a top 5 EP on Criminal Hype featuring a remix from the legendary Russ Yallop. The up and coming London-based pair have been making waves since establishing themselves in 2017, and after the success of ‘Groovy’ on Criminal Hype they went on to release their ‘Four Realms’ EP on Leftwing & Kody’s blossoming new imprint ‘Lost Audio’, which climbed into the top 20 on BeatPort within two days post-release.
As well as playing in tech-house clubs and events across London, YIYANG & Ren Phillips also spend as much time as possible in the studio, with upcoming releases on many of the industry’s freshest and most reputable record labels within Tech House. Among those releases are on 'Jacky & Friends' and Apollo 84’s ‘Twisted Fusion’ labels, along with a heavily anticipated feature on Criminal Hype’s notorious ‘The Hype’ VA. Their upcoming release with prolific label Resonance & Roush with EP ‘Cult Fiction’ in February 2019 will set the standard for the coming year and see them hit the ground running on the tech house scene.
The pair have also been enjoying a residency with London tech-house party aficionados Más Vida, with sets at their Summer Sessions party at 93 Feet East in the summer, as well as at the 1st birthday party in November at Shoreditch Platform – and they will be joining the other residents for the first party of 2019 in February.
It’s still early days for YIYANG & Ren Phillips, but with their untameable level of work ethic and passion, they have set the bar high for themselves and are a duo to keep more than just a firm eye on in the future.
