Jung Youth ‘Some Dreams I Won’t Remember’ (premiere)
I was on a conference call once with DJ Envy who said to the group, “Good music will market itself.” It was a point in the conversation where marketing and budget were brought up and his comment cut in at just the right time. There exist quite a few artists/creatives, making an impact with their art who aren’t household names but are successfully moving their way to the top with major synch placements. Jung (pronounced Young) Youth is just such a story and as such, worth watching to see how he grows.
Why? How about having a song picked up by the NFL for the 2017/2018 season as part of the music bed for Thursday Night Football promos?! I’ll also have to point out favorable reviews from music maniac outlets like Earmilk.com and onestowatch.com, who’ve also taken notice of the “Jung” dynamo (yeah I know I’m corny…so what it’s my story!)
The subject of our premiere, Jung’s newest single Some Dreams I Won’t Remember, presents a different aspect of his artistry with a celebration of Hip Hop form showcased in this introspective. No, it’s not straight Hip Hop which is the keystone of the joint; The song enjoys some dope vocal accents as well.
Overall the new single hits on all cylinders and is a well laid out invite to explore more of his music. 4/5 for me.
Jung Youth discusses Some Dreams I Won’t Remember (Dropping independently tomorrow Friday September 8th) and how it came to be saying:
Once upon a time it was a Saturday in September. Saturdays were always some of my favorite days to make music since at the time most of our friends were off work and our house, which we called the Snaphouse, was always jamming. My bro Danny Melonz started working on a beat and our main dude Nephew showed up ready to rock–the vibes were impeccable and I could already tell this was shaping up to be a banger. I was lowkey bummed because I had to leave and go to a wedding reception for someone I didn’t really know…the whole time all I could think about was how my friends at home were probably cooking up something awesome. About halfway through the wedding reception, Nephew called me and said that they needed to get me on the track, pronto. I decided that making this music with my friends was way more important than schmoozing with people I didn’t know, and my crew came and picked me up with the windows down, blasting the new instrumental the whole way home. It was one of those moments I will never forget.
As soon as we got home we started tracking rough vocals in the living room with a mattress propped up against the wall behind the mic and the rest is history. This song is so important to me because it reminds me of a couple things: first, that I might not be here today talking about and making music if not for the help and support of my friends. And second, that life is short and it’s up to us to make these moments count, for better or for worse. Most of the stuff that we stress or worry about will probably be forgotten anyways, just like the dreams we won’t remember after waking up from a deep slumber. ~ Jung Youth
Looks like we’ll all be getting familiar as Jung as he continues to grow…he’s already made an eternal song with his NFL selection Only One King…personally, I’m confident NFL Films will have cause to use it as well…the song is well…football!
