YellowStraps was created by two Belgian self-taught brothers (Alban & Yvan Murenzi) drawing influences from their travels early on. Born in Rwanda, raised in Uganda, and living in the melting pot that is Brussels, ever since.


They have always been busy conjuring up a very particular sound mixing many styles like Jazz, Soul, Hip-hop & electronic music. In 2014 the band won the Award of Most Promising Artist at Redbull Elektropedia. 2016 is the year they dropped ‘MELLOW’, a first album in collaboration with famous producer Le Motel. In 2018 YellowStraps’ 3rd release, ‘BLAME’, came out on Majestic Casual Records. In 2020, the two brothers set up their own label “Haliblue Records” and release the “GOLDRESS” EP via Believe UK. From the first EP being picked up by Belgium's favourite Dj LEFTO, to gaining increasing support from global radios like BBC 1xtra, 6 music, Beats 1, Soulection, KCRW etc… the duo has now made a name for itself as one to watch closely in the coming years on the global scene, and is assuredly one of the revelations of the Neo-Soul/Electronic/Hip-Hop scene in Belgium. Top Youtube channels (Majestic Casual, The Sound You Need, College Music, etc.) and international press such as Complex, Vice, Earmilk, Les Inrocks, Paris Match, Fred Perry SubCulture, or Highclouds, have already picked up on the duo's releases to date.
