BORN: Her­zliya, Tel Aviv, in 1979 CA­REER: Aged 19, one of his early de­mos fell into the hands of a US record exec and he was in­vited to New York to de­velop his mu­sic. But fear­ful of be­com­ing a pop pup­pet, he moved to Lon­don, where he was snapped up by Rollo Arm­strong for his new im­print, Field Record­ings. Arm­strong al­lowed Yoav the free­dom to ex­plore com­bin­ing dance rhythms with con­ven­tional song­writ­ing ON BE­ING JEWISH: “Peo­ple in Is­rael are staunchly Zion­ist, but as far as the re­li­gion goes, you of­ten find more ‘Jewish’ peo­ple out­side Is­rael. Lon­don is the most Jewish place I’ve lived”
