Today, Babygrande Records announces its latest signing of the Jamaican duo The Yutes. Hailing from Kingston, the brothers, Santris and ChrisNI, seamlessly combine their Jamaican dancehall and reggae influence and with trap.
The Yutes (Jamaican Patois Slang for “The Youth”) are both brothers and they are actually the sons of Jamaican dancehall legend Mr. Lexx. As teenagers, they moved to the US to pursue music full-time and have since gained notoriety with a handful of single releases including “Swervin” and “Push.” They also received traction with their track “Trap Don Dadas,” which was featured on the A3C Volume 7 Compilation. The Yutes are coming off of a massive performance at this year’s SXSW Festival, where they shared the stage with J.I.D., Flipp Dinero, DaBaby, Reason, Drako, Lightskin Keisha, and Valee, among other at Stubbs.
The announcement of The Yutes signing to Babygrande arrives simultaneous to the release of their debut video for “Don’t Blow My High.” The song, which features Operator and is produced by D-errick, meshes perfectly with the Cricket-directed visual inspired by the group’s Jamaican heritage. Look out for more new music from The Yutes this year.
