Yen Sung is a pioneer of Portuguese dance music and has been a vital presence in Lisbon’s house scene since the early 90s. At a time when it was still uncommon for women to command the dancefloor behind the decks, Yen became a symbol of fierce determination and undeniable taste for a new generation of Lisbon clubbers and DJs.
Since her start at the legendary Frágil club, and later on Lux Frágil, where she’s still one of the main residents, Yen Sung has toured internationally and locally, cementing her reputation with stone-cold house music sets, as well as with more eclectic sets that draw from a wide-ranging history of Black music.
Her earliest studio efforts landed her releases on Basement Jaxx’s Atlantic Jaxx and Compost Records, where she remixed OST legend Ennio Morricone. After a break from producing, Yen launched her own label Alphabet Street together with Photonz in 2021, dropping the infectious single “Still.” Since, she has released her own music on Paraiso and also welcomed artists like Violet and KAKAF to the label.
