Song of the Day – i-D
2012 better be ready. YADi isn’t like other pop musicians. Poised, petite and powerful, she exploded onto the blogsphere last year with ‘Sahara Heart’, a love song set upon the knife-edge of defiance and defeat. It garnered support across the board and quickly became i-D’s ‘Track of the Day’. It’s included on her debut EP ‘Guillotine’ which is released on 14th May.
At just 24, she is a beautiful bundle of contradictions, the product of a genetic cocktail that mixes Algerian on her father’s side with Norwegian and Italian on her mother’s. For YADi – born in South London – her music is an aural kaleidoscope of influences, one that mixes the music of her heritage with the pop of the future, creating a forward-thinking sound that sets her apart from the crowd.
In the live arena, YADi stalks the stage with a slinky prowess – a feline with the roar of a tiger and a revolutionary zeal. Joining her on stage are Chris Hutchings and Max Taylor, both of whom she met on the thriving London music scene and who cut their teeth in Tom Vek’s band. Her performances, which resonate with a volcanic pulse, a cathartic outpouring of emotion and passion as if her very existence was dependent upon it, have won her many champions including Marina and the Diamonds and CSS, both of whom YADi has supported. Behind her flies the YADi flag, its four colours representing each country that encompasses part of her background.
