Yonkyd – DJ & Producer

Yonkyd is a Colombian DJ and producer based in Bogotá/Colombia. He makes analog and digital works using multiple hardware.

Astrid: How long have you been creating sounds?

Yonkyd: From 2007-2008 I learned how to use production programs.

Astrid: What would be the genre that identifies you both aesthetically and musically?

Yonkyd: Currently I lean more towards industrial techno, but more than techno is the industrial sound because I usually mix many genres such as hip hop, breakbeat, dubstep, trap but all focused on industrial sounds, noise and samples with distortions.

Astrid: What is the message you want to convey through music?

Yonkyd: No message, just trash beats for broken ears.

Astrid: What was your first time in front of the audience?

Yonkyd: As a DJ, in 2016 at a private party when I was starting to mix but before I already had experience on stages rapping.

Astrid: What tools do you use when creating?

Yonkyd: I work digitally and use different music production programs as I fit what I need to do but the one I use the most is Ableton live to make music and play it live. Controllers and instruments I use:
Akai mpk25, Numark mixtrack pro and a Casio CTK-3400SK keyboard.

Astrid: What other trades do you have outside of the musical craft?

Yonkyd: I do analog and digital collage, audiovisual production and graphic design.

Astrid: What was your first audiovisual material and how long ago did it premiere?

Yonkyd: A video for a clothing brand where I produced the music and did the video editing, it was about a year ago.

Astrid: How many collaborations have you made and with which artists?

Yonkyd: I have done collaborations with two clothing brands: (@cabronaindumentaria @avenegraclothes) and a collaboration with an artist from another world (@otherworld_xx) in the audiovisual part.

Astrid: Do you belong to any crew or artistic group?

Yonkyd: Yes, Molecular Records and Kydtrash Records.

Astrid: What is the main purpose of your craft? Any political or anti-systematic positions?

Yonkyd: I could tell you that Yonkyd is:
“the garbage that they throw away, used and recycled to transform it and give it a new meaning, a sound influenced by the samples that life gives, a beatmaker of the mutated electronics of the machines and the noise that makes the masses uncomfortable waking them up and making them alert to something they did not want to hear and end up enjoying it”. It could be said that this is the objective, I do not follow political or religious currents, always anti-police, pure vandalism.
