Teaming up with Destiny on the release, ‘Do For Your Love’ showcases the sounds which have propelled the highly-rated artist into the consciousness of the public eye, with Yatez fusing a range of down-tempo chord patterns with a series of influences from afrobeat and dancehall genres.
“Some of the best songs I make come together quickly and naturally,” added Yatez. “I loved the beat as soon as I heard it and was vibing with it straight away. Then when Destiny laid her vocals that was the finishing touch.”
Developing his own style, blending rap with melody over eclectic production, Yatez prides himself on being involved in the production of his music, not just writing and singing, with his personally penned lyrics taking inspiration from elements found in soul, RnB, and hip-hop.
Citing artists such as Stevie Wonder, Tupac, J Cole, Drake, Skepta, Wretch 32, Sizzla and Oasis as his earliest idols, Yatez has received a wide range of backing so far in his career, dropping his 18 track ‘Local’ album in 2017; a gateway into support from BBC Radio 1Xtra’s Charlie Sloth, andJamal Edwards (SBTV).
A sweeping track tinged with all corners of Yatez’ signature sound, ‘Do For Your Love (feat Destiny)’ displays the precocious talent’s powerful production prowess and is set for release on Friday 5th October.
