“ my room ” , an ep from los angeles based artist and creative yungdurr

q.         what was your primary inspiration for the production of this project ?

a.      to define one specific location of inspiration would be tricky, but I can definitely think of a few key sources. mainly, the concept of a person’s room or perhaps more specifically, my own room; is what is really at the center of this whole piece. I think that a person’s room is an extension of their psyche; maybe a reflection or even personification of the subconscious. In my case, this means cramming my marshall 4x4 stack and other miscellaneous speakers and recording equipment, plastering my wall with a chaotic array of newspaper clippings, notebook sketches, hot Italian models and basically anything that masking tape can hold onto a wall. Unorthodox, to say the least, but this has been a recording style that has absolutely changed my perspective on independent creativity and productivity, as well as on audio recording in general.

q.         what is your favorite song off of the project ?

a.       that’s a tough one, I really enjoyed the whole creative process on this project. I think the songs work well with each other, and I especially enjoy the project more as a full work rather focusing on the individual songs. But, if I had to choose, I’d say that “ counting clouds (my favorite dream “ ), is the song that I connect with the most on an emotional level. It’s a song I love to play even when I’m just sitting at home messing with guitar. I also think it’s a song that listeners can really appreciate and connect with as well.

q.         is there anything you’d like to say to your listeners about this new ep ?  


first and foremost, I would just like to personally thank every single person in my life who has      supported this crazy dream of mine, as well as all the amazing people who take the time out of their busy lives to listen to my music and support me at my shows. I love you all. Hopefully you can relate to what I’m saying in these songs, and I promise I’ll never stop going :)
