Yu Su is a composer, DJ, and sound artist. Born in Kaifeng, Henan province of China, she currently lives in Vancouver, Canada. She started releasing music in 2014, and after a handful of EPs she released her debut album Yellow River Blue in January 2021.
Tapping into an expansive repertoire of fourth 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/Music From Memory (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.
