Yuzima has been labeled a “Prince of Noize” in a scene of on-the-edge New York City singer-songwriters — artists who dabble in various elements from folk to industrial and synthesizer based music. Yuzima channels inspiration from his unlikely childhood in Gun Hill Projects in the Bronx, a new recording format (the Insta-Album), current social issues and even mysticism — for a big ambitious sound. Yuzima’s music can easily be described as if Nirvana collaborated with Prince and Metz in a cave of Ty Segall lo-fi genius.

When I was in high-school I had a part time job at a TJ maxx. They used to play this song on the classic rock station that blasted on the intercom. So i’ve always appreciated this song and his vocal performance.
I was hanging at a cafe when this came on, I went on to Tidal and dug it up. A lot of my friends growing up were into Slayer. So it’s interesting that I’m paying them a second look now.
This song gave me nightmares when I was a kid. My mom used to play it. It’s so theatrical and has a seventies sensibility.
I love Future and 2 Chainz it’s influencing my music at the moment. It’s on a different lane than other stuff but there’s an honesty to it.
The 80’s wear the crown when it comes to pop songs; folks had just mastered the drum machine and it was all about mood and melody. These women just had that thing down to a T.
When I recorded my 2013 LP “The Machine” I had no idea that Pink Floyd had this. I heard it on Netflix show “Person of Interest’ went back and dug it up; now I’m rocking this on a daily basis. Ironic.
This song is a nuclear bomb of songwriting. I think it’s about a girl with low prospects living in a war zone. It may also be about the sex trade. But Seal is insane at writing these kinds of songs and matching the arrangement and performance to the theme.
I basically live on the set for this music video in Greenwich Village; so I can point out where she’s walking in different scenes. It’s probably the best video and I pick off stuff from it like I did for my latest music video “Say What You Mean” – some of the walking scenes and the barges in the east river.
When I met Patti I had no idea about this tune – but after hearing it, I have three times more respect for her than I did and already thought she was a god.
Santigold really laid the ground work for the current popscape and her first record affected me right up to my first release. I would love to meet her and hang.
