Su’s work is truly transportive, conveying a wonderful sense of place and atmosphere, while still working as music you can dance to.
Kaifeng-born, Vancouver based Yu Su works as a composer, DJ, and sound artist. Tapping into an expansive repertoire of “forth world” ambience and left-field dance music, Yu Su’s emotion-packed compositional punches are best described as organically groovy jazz-bient expeditions between coasts.
A proficient instrumentalist who conjures up moments of natural and synthetic beauty, her delicate, dub-inflected signature balances a variety of luminous and wistful downtempo textures. She is responsible for productions on DC’s People’s Potential Unlimited (2017), The Hague-based Wichelroede (2017), NYC’s RVNG Intl. & Arcane (2018), and Amsterdam based Second Circle (2019).
As a DJ, she holds a highly unique voice, crafting evocative musical narratives which touch on a wide-range of influences and personal introspections.
