YUS is the sound of American singer-composer Youceff Yunque Kabal (Born March 20, 1990 in Brussels, Belgium).
Drawing from an eclectic set of influences, YUS creates emotive soundscapes that strike listeners with their depth and impactful lyrics.
Born and raised in the heart of Europe, he relocated to Phoenix, Arizona as a teenager in September 2004. Shortly thereafter, Youceff began to make mix CDs with his brother to listen to on the way to school. The CDs were heavily hip hop oriented, and his selections most notably featured Kanye West who remains a great influence. After seeing an Adidas commercial during the 2006 World Cup featuring the music of RJD2, and simultaneously being introduced to Fruity Loops by his neighbor, Youceff started making his own beats.
While a student at Metropolitan Arts Institute, Youceff dabbled in various disciplines including film, theatre, and mixed media visual art. After graduating, Youceff took a year off school and went on in 2009 to study music theory and piano performance at Phoenix College, eventually joining the school’s concert choir. Between the fall of 2009 and the summer of 2010, he recorded his debut album, “Palms”, in his bedroom. The album was digitally released on Bandcamp on November 21 of the same year.
