Yawdoesitall - 'Hold On'

Having spent recent years establishing himself as one of Sydney’s sharpest hip-hop voices and producers, Yawdoesitall brings the lessons learned in studio and on the road together in creating his most defining work yet – debut EP 'Life I Chose'. 

From it, the artist shares new single ‘Hold On’, a track that new and longtime fans alike can immerse themselves in, while gaining an insight into the sonic palette of the wider Yawdoesitall body of work. A track that lands with impact, ‘Hold On’ is an impassioned release that urges listeners to keep on going when things get tough – a reminder that we’re all here for a purpose, regardless of how different our individual paths appear.

Recording ‘Hold On’ at the Elefant Traks studio in Sydney, Yawdoesitall worked with Finbar Stuart (Nerve, Agung Mango) on mixing and Lewis Mitchel (Anderson .Paak, 6LACK, NAO) on final mastering. As he describes, the single is a personal one for him and revealed itself as a vehicle to pick himself up out of a dark place.

Speaking about the track, Yawdoesitall explained, "'Hold On’ was a letter to myself when I was down, in times of doubt. ‘Hold On' was a reminder to keep going and hold on one more day. It touches on depression, and being at low points in your life and reminding yourself of the ‘why’. Why you’re on this journey.”

The release of ‘Hold On' follows on from the hyped up power jam from Yawdoesitall, ‘G.Y.M.’, providing a great moment of contrast for the artist as he gears up for the release of 'Life I Chose' this November. Reflective of the choices Yaw has made in life that have set him on a path different to the one originally determined for him, the record is a statement of intent as it is a mark of arrival from the exciting artist.
