Before his Yung Bae project took off in 2014, Dallas Cotton went by his real name making more “mainstream” EDM music and remixing the likes of Kaskade and Pegboard Nerds. Since a debut full-length release, Bae, Cotton has tapped different influences such as disco, funk and Japanese city pop, giving his 80’s samples the nostalgic flavours vaporwave fans will be on board with while presenting them in futuristic frills and anime aesthetics.

Cotton is also known for collaborations with Asia’s hip-hop crew 88rising, Mura Masa, Josh Pan Louis The Child, or his remix of Kendrick Lamar’s “DNA.”.
