Native Tongues with Yannika and special guests ‘Siiimba’ and ‘Chris RL’

Written by on May 26, 2021

This week on Native Tongues, Yannika chats to ‘Siiimba‘ about his latest EP ‘Tabula Rasa’, why he has three i’s in his name and more. Also featured this week, new tracks from CHAII, Kings, Uts, NOÈ, Dallas Harvey and Chris RL. Throw in some old tracks from local legends SWIDT and established artist JessB and it’s the perfect concoction of a typical Native Tongues show.

Chris RL is super late to his interview cause the Trains were down so instead of cancelling it, Yannika waits for him to turn up and then highjacks a quick spot on ‘For The Ville’ radio (Mondays 4pm-6pm with Bass, Poetik and JustRenzo) so we can still have a chat with him. Find out about his new EP ‘STILL’, all the amazing producers on the project plus a limited edition cassette player and cassette he’s put out!
