Straight outta Melbourne, Yeo is the electro songwriter punching out glorious, fuzzed out tunes you can’t help but get down to. He’s got game, and three years of top-shelf releases to prove it.

The man himself is about to groove through some of Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney’s most-loved live venues with dream pop heartbreakers SAATSUMA in tow.

Yeo proved he has an ear for damn fine electronica with his album Ganbaru, and today we find out just how deep his tastemaking talent goes.

We managed to catch Yeo between rehearsals for the upcoming shows to put his musical library to the harsh test of public scrutiny. He was confident, and after seeing his picks, we can see why.

Grab the headphones for this hot list of Yeo’s favourite tunes of 2016 so far, and see what he has to say about each pick below.

Jack GraceAll Lost

I’ve been waiting for Jack to put something out for ages, because he knows how to bring the feels.

Christopher PortBump

A fresh electronic production from a talented drummer, including stacks of cowbell.

Buoy Clouds & Rain

Charmian Kingston’s delicate vocal and nuanced writing grab me immediately on this.

Rainbow ChanNest

Rainbow’s got an incredible sense of melody and lyrical prose which brings the eccentric production of this song to life.

SaatsumaFloating

This track makes me want to dance with my eyes closed… turn it up!

MaribelleShout

Killer hooks, meaningful words; this is an uplifting heel shuffler, channeling R&B elements old and new.

Matt BlackRiot

Moody release from this little-known artist. One of the best vocals I’ve heard in a long time.

GLGrip

Ella and Graeme make a killer team. Faithful 80s production and skillful playing/programming make me want to jump around.

Emma LouiseColours

I’m a sucker for nostalgia, and Emma is literally my queen.

HermitudeVibration

I first heard this drop live side-stage at a huge festival. It’s just as killer blaring through my headphones.

 

Yeo’s tour kicks off in Sydney tomorrow, and if you get in quick you’ll also be able to catch this act in Melbourne on the 25th and Brisbane on the 30th. Tickets here.
