Pulse Events is proud to present Dutch duo Yellow Claw as they return to New York City for a unique show on May 20 at legendary venue Avant Gardner. Supporting them will be hardtrap pioneer SAYMYNAME and Taiwanese DJ/producer JVNA.
‘I Love U’ Day, also known as Asian Valentine’s Day, is Inspired by Valentine’s Day culture in Asia. May 20 is written out as 520 and when those numbers are pronounced in Chinese, they sound similar to “I love you.”
Yellow Claw, aka Nils Rondhuis and Jim Taihuttu, have captivated dance music lovers for more than a decade with their riveting mix of genres including elements from trap, bass, dubstep, hardstyle, and hip-hop. Their debut studio album Blood For Mercy took the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Dance Music Albums chart and their tracks “DJ Turn It Up,” “Till It Hurts,” and “Shotgun” collectively amassed more than 350 million streams on Spotify.
Supporting acts SAYMYNAME, a pioneer of the hardtrap genre fusing hardstyle and trap, and rising Taiwanese American DJ/producer JVNA, with her heart-pounding and melodic beats, are set to share the stage with Yellow Claw.
Avant Gardner is the quintessential Brooklyn warehouse venue, that’s anything but. A massive and soaring space, its exposed beams and brick walls evoke a familiar industrial aesthetic while containing boundless possibilities for transforming the space. An array of moving lights shines down from high in the ceiling, while a two-level platform gives a viewpoint over The Great Hall’s enormous dance floor. This is where Yellow Claw, SAYMYNAME, and JVNA will take the stage, along with other artists yet to be announced.
