Yabujin is a Lithuanian rapper, singer and producer known for making bitcrushed, ambient and hardstyle EDM music. Yabujin released their first EP in late 2016 and gained considerable listenership in late 2022. The samples used in the artist's songs and the visual art accompanying Yabujin's music are inspired by 2000s culture and video games. The artist also goes by various other usernames, including DJ GYROTTA ZAO, YABHIEL, Elixir Nomad and tailandietis85, among others. The artist is often compared to other cloud rappers such as Bladee.


Yabujin first began releasing music in 2016, posting an instrumental track named "gal games" under the alias "naga" on September 1st, 2016.[1] The song has since been removed from the artist's official SoundCloud, but can be accessed via a September 15th, 2021, upload to YouTube by karma archives (seen below).[2]

The artist went on to release their first EP under the same alias on December 31st, 2016.[3] The EP was titled fezome and can be accessed via upload to the SoundCloud page 53:00 gram (seen below).[4]


On December 21st, 2019, Yabujin released their mixtape FLASH DESIRE, which can be accessed via reupload to the SoundCloud page "YABUJIN ARCHIVE."[5]

On November 18th, 2020, the subreddit /r/YABUJIN was formed.[6] In early 2021, the artist erased their discography off their SoundCloud page and took a hiatus to release hardstyle jump music under the alias DJ GYROTTA ZAO, stylized as "𝔇𝔍 6YRథ్‌٣٣A ЗАО" on SoundCloud.[7]

Yabujin also became a prevalent topic of conversation on TikTok in the fall of 2022, with TikToker[8] @ripsquaddfanatic making a video covering the artist's discography and bitcrushed video game music style in an August 3rd, 2022, video that gathered over 180,000 plays and 25,000 likes in roughly three months (seen below, left). The DJ GYROTTA SAO also became a prominent backing track for various Roblox edits, including one posted on November 20th, by TikToker @taurvs[9] in a post that gathered over 340,000 plays and 50,000 likes in three weeks (seen below, right).
