Late 2016 saw YOH introduce a new format for the parties for which they’ve become so popular. The new format sees them bringing an eclectic international artist to South Africa and having them perform in a unique and secret location. November 2016 saw YOH bringing Olubenga, one of the members of hit indie band Metronomy, to perform at a house party. 28 January shall see YOH bringing LA-based Stone Throw Records artist MNDSGN to perform a pool party somewhere in Cape Town. The secret location shall be announced to ticket holders a few days prior to the event. Further details and the support acts shall be announced in the build-up to the event. Tickets are limited to 500 people and can only be bought via Quicket. Ticket prices start out at R150 for early bird tickets limited to 50 people. There shall be a limited 100 tickets being sold at R200 and a general ticket shall set you back R250. Join the event on Facebook for more details and to keep up with the various acts that shall be performing.
Who is MNDSGN? Mndsgn (born Ringgo Ancheta) grew up in south New Jersey, raised with Gospel music at church, and B-Boy culture at home. Experimenting with beat-making, he befriended fellow producer Knxwledge and the two formed the influential Klipmode collective (along with Devonwho and Suzi Analogue). Mndsgn’s music flourished when he moved to Los Angeles, catching the attention of Stones Throw who released Yawn Zen (2014) and Body Wash (2016).
