Hiphop has become the lifestyle of many young people in the world. YunB naturally came into contact with the hiphop culture in New York and grew up alongside hiphop fans. Maybe that is why his music is so straightforward and organicly vivid. As he raps in ‘New York II’ and ’50K’, to him music is not something that was intentionally made by imitating someone else but a natural by-product of the process of accepting and learning the hiphop music and culture.
In the heartless, fierce city life of chasing success, the track ‘산인’ (lit.: mountain folks) opens the eyes to the importance and beauty of nature. This remarkable topic of the title track is continued similarly in ‘Ritalin’. The track mixes the life of constantly seeking something new and the true inner feelings that deny this. YunB’s English and YonYon‘s Japanese rap make for a profound and mysterious combination that creates a dreamy atmosphere. This unique atmosphere that can be called YunB’s signature sound can be heard in the whole album, including ‘Skrt’ and ‘U’. A dreamy progress of chords topped by a strong beat and rapping seems to represent the life of the young generation that grows up in the busy city, bearing dreams and love.
YunB produced and mixed this EP himself, including as much of his style as possible. Last year he debuted with the single ‘Runaway, Pt. 1‘, then continuously released several more singles and music videos. With his first EP in his name ‘YunB‘, he keeps reinforcing his own philosophy and creativity.
