Princeton Von Coleman, better known as Yuni Wa is a multi-genre producer, lyrist, and DJ from Little Rock, Arkansas. Yuni Wa fuses aspects of existence with music to create one frequency meant to strike deep and stick with people eternally. His music is a manifestation of many emotions– pain, love, joy, despair. Through his music and lyrics, Yuni Wa paints vivid pictures that every living being can relate to.
Yuni Wa is short for the Japanese word “yunibasaru” which means universal. Princeton heard this word on his search to discover a new artist name that explained him artistically and had a strong meaning behind it. Yuni Wa felt a connection to the word as he is universal to music, and music is universal to him.
Inspiration is constantly derived from Yuni Wa’s immediate environment, collectively shaping a waveform that is completely personal and impersonal at the same time. Yuni Wa serves as a reservoir where the daily human experience is translated from one wave to another able to be interpreted and absorbed in a concentrated form and re-lived at will through pressing a play button. Listening to Yuni Wa’s music is hearing the blueprint of human emotion.
Yuni Wa has been experimenting with music since the age of 13. In seven years, Yuni Wa put himself and Little Rock on the map in the music industry. Since 2012, Yuni Wa has: performed over 80 times on 15 different stages in his hometown including at the first ever Central Arkansas Music Awards where he was nominated for Best Electronic Artist/DJ; released 48 albums including a total of 477 original songs across genres including hip-hop, trap, electronic, pop and rock; collaborated with artists including Cuz LightYear, Bexey, Chris Travis and Goon des Garcons – Out The Flames, one of his productions in collaboration with Goon des Garcons was used for an Adidas Originals draft commercial in late 2018, and; he was nominated for Best Electronic Artist/DJ in the 2017 Black Apple Awards, and named one of the Visionary Arkansans of 2017 by the Arkansas Times. In 2018, Yuni Wa had 1M streams on Spotify, 636,000 listens on SoundCloud and 89,402 views on YouTube.
