We first heard from Yo-Blake in June of this year upon the release of his single “Don’t Need Me!” That track introduced readers of The Static Dive to an emerging singer, songwriter, rapper and producer from Mexico. The song was his sophomore release following his 2018 debut “Through the Darkness.”
The multi-instrumentalist writes and performs all of his music himself. Before branding himself as Yo-Blake, the young musician tried his hat at a number of genres. He eventually landed on a sound inspired by his heroes like P!NK, Drake and Iggy Azalea. It is a soulful and funky hip-hop-infused pop groove.
“Midnight Lover” is the brand new single from Yo-Blake, released worldwide via all major streaming services on August 19, 2022. A retro electro-pop synthwave vibe opens the track as the beat drops on a downtempo EDM groove. The singer steps to the mic with sexy dark pop seduction that brings to mind other genre-bending artists like Blood Orange or even some early Peter Gabriel.
