JOON Dream Again

JOON is the artist formally known as YEWS and the musical vehicle of Maltese producer Yasmin Kuymizakis.

Following her acclaimed 2019 debut album ‘Polarlichter’ which was released on Happy Robots Records and gained the support of BBC 6Music, synth earth mother Alice Hubble will issue its follow up ‘Hexentanzplatz’ this Autumn.
