Y U QT BABE? Limited Vinyl EP


Following their success in recent months with releases like ‘Let It Go’ and ‘Y’all Ready For Dis’ amongst their club-ready dubs, rising duo Y U QT now drop their highly anticipated ‘BABE?’ EP via LG105.

Growing exponentially in the past year, Y U QT have earned support from names like Interplanetary Criminal, Prozak, Daffy, Notion, and more whilst expanding their fanbase across radio airwaves as well as club floors on their headline, six date ALL NYTE LONG sold-out UK tour, and a debut Boiler Room performance alongside DJ EZ, Jyoty, and p-rallel. This year, Y U QT’s DJ expertise have seen them perform sold out shows across Nottingham’s Brickworks, Leeds’ Freedom Mills, and Manchester’s Hidden in addition to sets at El Dorado, Propyard, Boomtown, The Cause and more.

The rising duo now deliver their most enticing project yet, four tracks of pure unadulterated rave. Kicking off the genre bending journey, ‘The Way U’ pairs infectious high-pitched vocals paired with pearly melodies and crisp percussion before a descent into rave-fuelled euphoria. Whilst ‘Tiempo’ is a fast-paced joyride jumble of breezy synthesisers and stuttering grooves. Previous single ‘Let It Go’ swells with glistening breakdowns and upbeat samples before wrapping up with ‘Stuck On U’ that makes for a heavyweight banger with its racked up basslines and pumping percussion that makes for a next level release.

With a stellar catalogue of releases already on labels like Shall Not Fade, and South London Pressings along with tastemaker support from names like Bicep, Ben UFO, Disclosure, Or:la, Octo Octa, Eliza Rose and Eris Drew already under their belts, Y U QT have firmly established themselves in the scene as masters of a diverse array of genres across rave culture. Tracks such as Beatport no.1 You Belong To Me, a remix of easy life’s skeletons, plus a well-received array of bootlegs including Dave and Central Cee’s Sprinter have all catapulted the duo to the forefront of the scene amongst fans and peers alike as they gear up for their most poignant EP yet.

Elsewhere, demonstrating the genre versatility once more, this year’s Y’all Ready For Dis saw widespread support from going viral via Yung Singh’s Boiler Room set in Melbourne ahead of its release to BBC Radio 1 play from Danny Howard, Charlie Hedges, Jeremiah Asiamah, Jack Saunders’ Future Artists show, earring a Track Of The Week slot and more.

Continuing to exceed expectations with a collection of dancefloor weapons that tap into the most sublime corners of house, breaks, garage and beyond, BABE? makes for Y U QT’s most impressive work yet, demonstrating an evolution in sound and stand out versatility as they enter the next chapter of an already meteoric rise.
