Born in Bristol, Yes Man Jellyfish is a brainchild that has come into being. Immersed in dance culture, it becomes second nature to analyse the intense spectrum of sounds. Years of DJing, producing and playing in bands have converged towards live dance music.
Their energetic show has toured all manner of stages, alongside acts such as Stanton Warriors and Dr Meaker. Everything is performed live, using an intricate combination of acoustic and electronic instruments.
Influences range from pioneers such as 808 State, Orbital and Laurent Garnier to electronic acts like Soulwax, Groove Armada and Massive Attack. As well as the disco/funk revival that includes Dimitri From Paris, Daft Punk and Todd Terje.
Driving the group is a classic formula of dynamic beats, swelling basslines and vibrant piano rhythms. Powerful vocal melodies, creative guitar hooks and vast synth parts add rich textures. Rooted in house, their unique sound also spans garage, breaks and electronica.
This year they are poised to release a special collection of music. Supporting this is a string of exciting live performances at venues, parties and festivals across the UK. Yes Man Jellyfish write and play alternative dance music completely live.
