LA artist Yoshi Flower first appeared in March with his debut track “Movies”. Since then he's released tracks “Just On Drugs”, “Woke” and “Brown Paper Bag”, to name a few. Originally from Detroit, Yoshi was a member of the “cosmic trap” duo Gosh Pith before making the trek to LA and starting his solo career. He met the artist Elohim, with whom he was roommates with. They wrote the track “Panic Attacks”, which was featured on her debut self-titled album. With a sound that’s expansive and unique, he’s not concerned with fitting into one particular genre. With musical tastes that span from 2Pac, Biggie and Eminem to Metallica, Oasis, Bob Marley, Diplo and GRiZ, he blends all of his influences into a mix of glitchy beats, hip-hop rhythms, indie rock and electronica to create a sound that is uniquely him. Yoshi had the opportunity to perform at Bonnaroo last year, the first performance of his solo career, and has opened for artists such as Dua Lipa, Elohim, Washed Out, Princess Nokia, & Flint Eastwood. He recently toured this Fall with Whethan and SG Lewis, making plenty of new fans along the way. Having recently signed with Interscope Records, Yoshi’s debut recording with the label, a mixtape entitled AMERICAN RAVER, was released on October 12th. The mixtape is a collection of songs that he wrote as a way to cope with the crazy happenings in America and in the world right now, stuck at the crossroads between radicalism and utter apathy. With an album in the works for next year and plans to tour the world, it’s safe to say that Yoshi Flower is only getting started. Check out his video for “Just Cuz We're Paranoid Doesn't Mean They're Not Onto Us”, as well as the track “For Which I Dance” featuring Jesse Rutherford from AMERICAN RAVER.
