Born in 1993 in Tenerife, Canary Islands, Yegua (Jose Cascajo) grew up on a Scottish / Cuban family environment before relocating to London last year. After spending sometime in Madrid, Norway and Poland formed along Samuel Whitehouse (bloodvessel) the independent experimental label Perth Records in early 2017.
Later that year he was chosen by the fashion duo Fecal Matter to work as part of the Race War Collection presentation at Nick Knight’s SHOWstudio as both model and creator of the soundtrack (Later released on Perth Records). Fecal Matter and Yegua continue to work together on a range of projects including the duos upcoming single ‘Victim'.
He considers Ambient to be the new punk as we live in a society obsessed with social networks, receiving love from random people online, self-obsession .. this has taken music to be made for ‘pleasing the listener’ instead of actually experimenting and pushing art forward. Yegua’s music is not an easy-first-listen type of music and that’s where the punkness relays: the power of shocking in an industry where the familiar and obvious seems to rule our lives.
In this genre he feels rage and fury are not as portrayed as the glossy, overly romantic type of ambient we are accustomed to. 'Heridas' Released on Perth Records early 2018 portrays this view of never-healing-wounds through metallic soundscapes and sub-desconstruction of both Ambient and heavy electronic club music.
