YOLANDA BE COOL is an Australian band made up of Andrew Stanley and Matthew Handley. The band name is a reference to a scene in Quentin Tarantino's movie “Pulp Fiction”.
In 2010, they collaborated with Australian producer DCUP (real name Duncan MacLennan) to release an international single "We No Speak Americano", sampling on a 1956 Neapolitan language hit "Tu Vuò Fà L'Americano" by Renato Carosone. It sold over 5 million copies and amassed over 200 million ‘YouTube’ views worldwide. It topped the British, Spanish, German, Mexican, Argentinean, Swedish, Danish, Swiss, and Ecuadorian charts, and reached the Top 5 in Australia, France, Italy, Spain and Norway, and was also a chart hit in Colombia, New Zealand, Mexico, Peru, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Venezuela, Honduras, Costa Rica and several other countries around the world.
In 2011 YOLANDA BE COOL collaborated with Crystal Waters on a track called “Le Bump” which then made it onto their debut album "Ladies and Mentalmen" released in 2013. They also notably remixed Cyndi Lauper's song "Girls Just Want To Have Fun", taken from the 30th anniversary reissue of her album “She's So Unusual”.
In 2015 YOLANDA BE COOL released "Sugar Man", an edit of a song by Rodriguez that went on to go platinum in Australia before writing “Soul Makossa”, which samples Manu Dibango's saxophone. The song currently has over 1 million plays on ‘YouTube’ and claimed number 2 on Beatport's Top Ten in addition to be the sixth most sold House record of the year.
In 2016 YOLANDA BE COOL released their latest hit "From Me To You".
