Yah Supreme & Brohemian is an atmospheric hip-hop quartet featuring Brooklyn master of ceremonies Yah Supreme. It’s a 21st century mash-up of Gil Scott Heron, Marvin Gaye and Guru fused together over funky rhythms. Their simple, yet cinematic songs have attracted an enthusiastic audience to date. Yah Supreme (lead vocals/production) and Tommaso Cappellato (drums/production) formed the project in Brooklyn back in 2004 and independently released their debut album Post Modern Garden in 2006. Prior to forming Brohemian, Yah Supreme has released 5 12-inch singles on vinyl, an EP and a compilation album on compact disc through the labels Son Doo Recordings and Underground Academy. He has also appeared on albums as a guest with Tiffany Pfeiffer and the Discarnate Band, Jimmy Lopez, Spier 1200, DJ Cam and Fare Soldi.
Yah Supreme & Brohemian are fun and free, yet grown and sexy. Their sound is a unique meshing of bouncy grooves with driving melodies around social experiences, improvisation and stand-up comedy. Brohemian is an international, multi-ethnic movement that reflects “21st century togetherness.” Each of the band members boast high-profile collaborations and diverse musical backgrounds. They layer their many influences over a backdrop of hip-hop style, then expand the form.
After years of laying down a foundation of independent yet empathetic thinking through their music, Yah Supreme & Brohemian’s sophomore CD Naked City is now in production. Yah is also currently composing songs with producer Phil Money on the album “The 40-Year-Old Version” and is the co-producer and vocalist for the duo Moonset Juice under the pseudonym “Bruce Gladstones.”
