The return of Sweden’s pioneering hip-hop star

Swedish hip-hop phenomenon Yung Lean returns to Australia for his debut performance at Vivid LIVE, presented by Sydney legend and underground prophet 3NDLES5.

Yung Lean

From viral internet star to pioneering cloud rapper and pop experimentalist, the Swedish rapper, producer and singer-songwriter Yung Lean has captured the sound and spirit of an era. 

He first came to attention – and notoriety – in 2013 with his breakout track “Ginseng Strip 2002”, a viral smash that blew up on YouTube. While critics suspected the track to be a novelty hit, Yung Lean not only endured, he thrived. As an innovator in the world of SoundCloud rap, he released a string of acclaimed albums and mixtapes – including Unknown Memory (2014) and Warlord, (2016), and Stranger (2017) – that defined a buzzy new wave of dissociative hip-hop. 

Yung Lean expanded his dream-trap sound on 2020’s Starz, and leaned into pop experimentalism on 2022’s mixtape Stardust, which featured ambitious takes on rap, post-punk and electro, and featured high-profile collaborations with fka twigs (“Bliss”) and Skrillex (“SummerTime Blood”). Later that year, “Ginseng Strip 2002” experienced a massive viral resurgence on TikTok, captivating a whole new generation of kids.

Don’t miss one of the most creative young artists in the game.

3NDLES5

Channelling the chaos and beauty of the deep, dank Sydney underground, 3NDLES5 is the off-kilter electronic music project from Mitch Tolman, a former member of local post-punk legends Low Life. In 2023, 3NDLES5 curated the Posh isolation event for Vivid LIVE.
