[Listen] Yellow Claw – Los Amsterdam Album Review

EDM DJ duo Yellow Claw has had massive success on many of their new singles from their new album “Los Amsterdam.” The album “Los Amsterdam” itself, is definitely something to behold, and a variety pack of EDM bangers. The older stuff put out by Yellow Claw is harkened back to frequently, and the newer sounds still maintain their style, so it’s a good mix overall.

The lead-off track, “Home featuring Sophie Simmons,” caps off the album with an ethereal blast. The vocals are wanting and passionate, something much more graceful than any other track in my opinion. These wondrous lyrics and pitches are complemented of course, by the ever-subtle, air-horn effects. If ever there was one thing that needs to die in EDM music, it’s that song-interrupting, Jersey Shore air-horn sound effect. I’m so over the air-horn man, and it’s everywhere on “Los Amsterdam.”

“Without You featuring The Galaxy & Gia Koka” has a very fast build and a super bass-heavy drop. There’s not much more one wants in a banger that isn’t present here. “Love & War featuring Yade Lauren” takes a more winding path in the rhythm forest, and oddly enough, the synth almost sounds like a banjo at points when in tune with the heavier vibrations. “Love & War” ends triumphantly with a hearty rhythm, and appropriately, trumpet-like effects amid the drop.

“City on Lockdown” has vocals that complement the beat well too. Everything comes together quick in terms of pace and uniformity, and the drop is just straight up epic. “Good Day ft. DJ Snake & Elliphant,” well, I already reviewed that, so you should just read about it below

Electronic dance music has always been my go-to genre for as long as I can remember. I particularly enjoy drum n bass, psychedelic trance, and deep house. I have an MFA in Creative Writing from California State University, Fresno and a BA in English from SUNY Fredonia. When I’m not listening to new EDM music, I’m probably either bowling, writing speculative fiction, or sleeping.
