Starting as a member of the world-famous 360 Sounds team, YT THE BEST (aka DJ YTst) has recently set off movements as the leader of the OVRTHS collective – a sonically diverse unit of producers and DJs who specialize in hip-hop, trap, and footwork.
Since the late aughts, YTst has been at the forefront of the new Korean club sound, renown and appreciated for his capability to play and blend all genres. He has performed alongside legendary hip-hop artists such as DJ Premier, DJ Jazzy Jeff, J. Rocc, DJ Craze, Large Professor, and Just Blaze. He has also shared the booth with some of underground's hottest new talents including Esta. of Soulection, Falcons, Nick Hook of Fool's Gold, Mike Gao, and starRo.
Some of YTst's most recognized musical projects include the Notorious B.I.G. Tribute Mix, which garnered coverage on multiple international outlets including XXL and Ego Trip. His remix of Jay-Z's "Public Service Announcement" also landed on Just Blaze's Wig Splitters 1 mixtape. In addition,
he has crafted soundtracks for international fashion house Juun.J, sportswear brand Nike, and K-pop label YG Entertainment. Along with fellow beatmaker J. Sin, he's part of a production duo known as Phatboy Phatt, and together they have released an EP titled, Chronicle.
Within Korea's genre-specific DJ scene, which often lacks musical diversity, YTst is a true standout, who's capable of delivering all sounds on the highest level. For that, he's been acknowledged and respected not only by his peers, but also by legends.
