Shanghai-born, New York-based singer-songwriter turned DJ/producer YU-YA is a new face in the underground scene, but will quickly blow your mind with thought-provoking hypnotic industrial techno tracks. She released guest mixes on Diffuse Reality Records and 6AM Group. Being a shy person in real life, she uses music as an outlet to express and connect with human emotions while taking listeners on a profound trip through a rainbow of experiences and feelings.

Growing up in a strict Asian family where music wasn’t accepted to be a traditional career, she refused to let it stop her from following her dreams and moved from Shanghai to New York. During 2016-2018, she developed a live music event and blog series “INCHANT” highlighting local indie bands and singer-songwriters who came from her home country. Now she is also the founder of a comfy-first lingerie brand “Seamless Lingerie” which aims to create a “comfort zone” for women’s self-expression and self-care.

In this hypnotic techno mix, I put together many unusual unique sounds, explore the chemistry between those sounds and see how they react to each other (just like love). Most of the time, I like to make people "uncomfortable", because I believe you may find a different side of yourself in an uncomfortable environment. But this is a pretty soothing mix from me.
