Last September, Yonas inked a label deal with independent imprint 1st Round Records. Four months and change later, the Big Apple repper and longtime DJBooth favorite makes things official with the release of his debut video single as part of their roster. On Clockwork, Teddy Roxpin‘s compulsively head-noddable, keyboard-driven production bangs in the back as Yonas expresses his exhilaration at having made it this far, and his high hopes for the latest phase in his career. Jakob Owen complements the cut with some official visuals set amidst the bright lights of NYC at night. Featuring Clockwork, the reader-approved Temptation and much more, new EP The Black Canvas is slated to hit iTunes February 4.
