Yung Saber stormed the UK Dancehall scene with his track ‘Tump & Kick’, which became an international hit and earned radio plays across the globe in 2021. Saber went on to do two remixes, the first one featuring Stylo G followed by an All-star remix featuring UK Dancehall trailblazers Big Zeeks, Shanti Force, The Rara, Doktor & Irah. Saber has performed at MADE Festival, Brighton Harbour Festival, Glastonbury, Notting Hill Carnival with Amazon, +44, and many other venues throughout the UK. He has appeared on several BBC radio shows such as Rampage, Seani B and BBC 1Xtra. In February 2023, he attended BBC Maida Vale Session with Seani B and performed his hit single ‘Karl Kani’ with a live band for BBC dancehall weekender.
As an actor, Saber has been featured in Noel Clarke’s film trilogy Brotherhood, the Boiler Room documentary Migrant Sound (which explored the music and culture brought to the UK from the Wind-rush generation), and most recently featured in Rapman’s 2019 blockbuster Blue Story. He has also been involved in various modeling campaigns for the sportswear brand Ellesse.
Born and based in South London, Yung Saber is a recording artist, actor and entertainer who seems to have been fated to become so. With both of his parents being reggae DJs, his dad a producer related to the late reggae legend Dennis Brown, and his cousin Dennis Rowe being one of the founders of the great Legendary Saxon Sound, his rich musical upbringing certainly paved the way for musical success. Influenced by the likes of Super Cat and Vybz Kartel, Yung Saber’s sound can be compared to J Hus, Govana, MoStack, Not3s, Krept & Konan and Yxng Bane.
‘Gucci Prada’ is a dancehall banger that is impossible not to move to. An infectious afroswing beat and minimal instrumental carry Yung Saber’s jivey, smooth vocals - he’s effortless, he’s suave, and he’s having a good time. ‘Gucci Prada’ is a bop to lift your mood and make you feel carefree on any occasion.
Yung Saber shared: “The inspiration behind ‘Gucci Prada’ was about having a good time and living my best life. With all the stresses that come with life itself the song celebrates the times when we are having fun and living that YOLO life, and high end fashion/designer fits being a big part of the dancehall culture we all want to step out looking our best surrounded by good vibes.”
