“On the other end of that line is the introspective rapper who seems so beyond earthly inclinations they might have as well been birthed by Sun Ra on his native Saturn. I wouldn’t place Yoh as absolutely extraterrestrial, but his stories and struggles play out in a much more private world than one where simple social alienation is even worth bringing up”- Peter O’Neal of Artifact Magazine
Yoh is a Brooklyn born mixed-media artist and musician of the NY based band Poetic Thrust and hip-hop collective 99SUBLIME. His love for hip-hop, jazz and electronic music, coated in a deep appreciation for ambiance, has influenced his methods of creating music. Through wordplay, the stories he creates allows the listener to delve deep into a realm he defines as unearthly.
“Yoh’s tracks are true poetic works of art laced with wisdom. Each time I listen to his music I find myself thinking more philosophically about the world around me. His irresistible flow paired with soothing ambient beats will never fail to serenade you, and your higher self. Yoh has a one of a kind sound and his lyrical content is enough to bring tears to your eyes.”- Mackenzie Tucker of Nothing Original
