Marking their 200th release, Yellow Claw’s Barong Family imprint have released appropriately names BF200 EP. The EP features seven new tracks from Barong Family members, ranging from Wiwek, Crisis Era, RayRay, GHOSTER, Nonsens, Psycho Boys Club, Yellow Claw themselves and others.
The Amsterdam-based imprint has become known for its wide range of musical influences and high-tempo BPMs, and “BF200” follows the same vein. Spanning sounds from three continents and even a reworked ’90s classic, “BF200” also has a unique and fantastical backstory. Ever the creative crew, the EP’s accompanying artwork, and bonus audiobook see Barong Family travels across space and time to save their home planet Mother Earth.
“It has been a wild ride since when we had put out our first release on Barong Family back in 2014. During the past 6 years, we have met many talented artists who wanted to take part in this adventure with us and joined the family. Moksi, RayRay, Wiwek, and more all saw the transition from Barong Family – a music label to Barong Family – a worldwide brand with its own merch lines, writing camps in Asia, documentaries, sold-out tours in North America, own stages at the world’s biggest festivals. 200 releases seem like a big number, and 6 years feel like a very long time, but for us, thanks to what we do and whom we are fortunate to work with, it feels like we are just starting, as our excitement never faded away.” – Yellow Claw
