About Yung Bae:
Throughout his extensive catalog, now spread across 6 albums and a collection of singles, EPs and B-Sides, Yung Bae heralds the rise of Future Funk, stewarding the sub-genre from its niche underground internet culture into a cult-like phenomena.
Yung Bae immediately grabs his listener with a distinctive blend of the traditional and modern; spanning between smooth jazz, funk, old school hip-hop, to Studio 54 disco. He credits this range of inspiration to chillwave acts like Neon Indian, rock bands like The Doobie Brothers, DJs like Madlib, 90s hip-hop, or really, “anybody who’s touched funk”. He still dedicates hours daily to combing the internet for obscure samples, always challenging himself to push the envelope creatively.
“To press play on any one of the 24-year old producer/DJ’s releases is to be transported to a parallel universe, one that’s full of beautiful impossibilities. No matter the age of his listeners, Yung Bae’s music tends to stir up fond memories of decades past” ~ Bandcamp Daily
After signing to Arista Records/Sony Music Entertainment, Yung Bae has released a string of buzzworthy singles, including a new version of his viral track “Bad Boy” featuring Wiz Khalifa, MAX and bbno$. The original “Bad Boy” featuring bbno$ and Billy Marchiafava has over 100 million streams, viewed with over 2 billion impressions across 1 million videos on TikTok. Most recently, Bae released “Revolving” featuring Marc E. Bassy and “Disco Body Parts” featuring AWOLNATION, alongside collaborations with Mike Posner, kenzie and others.

About Pink Sweat$:
Hailed by ROLLING STONE as “An artist you need to know,” Philadelphia-native singer-songwriter-producer Pink Sweat$ has drawn international applause for his utterly unique brand of genre-smashing contemporary soul, marked by lyrical complexity, melodic power, and true vocal majesty. He began making music at the age of 19, cutting demo vocals at Philly’s legendary Sigma Sounds Studios. There he began his career as a songwriter and producer, teaming with a wide range of artists spanning Tierra Whack to Florida Georgia Line. In 2018, Pink Sweat$ fully stepped into the spotlight with his extraordinary debut EP, VOLUME 1, which began accruing major attention in an array of top media outlets around the world. “(Pink Sweat$) is taking a new approach to creating genre-bending music,” declared Ones To Watch. “Though Pink’s music is rooted in R&B and soul, he carefully strips back the typical genre-specific production to leave room for his stunning melodies and memorable lyrics.” DJ Booth applauded VOLUME 1 as “tender, affecting, and plush,” while Billboard personally praised Pink Sweat$ for his “indomitable pen-skills and soothing vocals.” In 2019, the rising artist celebrated the release of VOLUME 1 with the Pink Beginnings Tour, which was later followed by the introduction of its highly-anticipated follow up, VOLUME 2. Shortly after the release of VOLUME 2, Pink Sweat$ went on to support the EP by headlining his Pink Beginnings Tour – Part 2 during the summer.
2019 saw a number of successes for the talented artist, including being named Apple Music’s “Up Next” artist, ranked among Billboard‘s “11 Hip-Hop & R&B Artists to Watch in 2019” and making his high profile network TV debut on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!. As if that weren’t enough, the break-through star was nominated for “Best New Artist” at the 2019 Soul Train Awards, in addition to having performed at the show in Las Vegas, NV. Pink Sweat$ was also named BET's Amplified Artist of the Month for January 2020. As if that weren’t enough, in 2020 Pink introduced a touching single, “Not Alright,” which heralded the release of his standout project, THE PRELUDE.
In 2021, Pink Sweat$ welcomes the year with a brand new remix to “At My Worst” featuring Kehlani, along with the release of his debut album, Pink Planet on February 12TH. Ultimately, Pink Sweat$ makes a statement by unapologetically bringing love to the forefront.
