Funk Pop: MillionYoung
Blasting out of every speaker in my house is my new obsession Million Young.
Mike Diaz of MillionYoung lives in Miami Florida. MillionYoung is a fresh new sound that combines traditional instruments like guitar and fuses them with funk and electronica into one tropical soundscape masterpiece. When you listen to MillionYoung you are transported to downtown Miami Cruising with the top down listening to the sounds of the city. Honestly ,I get the feeling of being in Miami when I listen to the song hammock. You can tell that his environment influences his music. Which is great, because who doesn’t love Miami?
Vocally , MillionYoung reminds me of indie rock bands from the early 2000 which is slightly nostalgic. However it’s funky dance, up beat rhythm, gives it a fresh contemporary feel which truly in compasses what Miami is all about. No surprise that MillionYoung has been described as chillwave the sound that is trending right now.
Another favorite song is “Cynthia”. The beat of this song is reminiscent of trance music which gives it a cool dreamlike quality. MillionYoung sounds like it should be playing in a high-end Fashion Boutique. If you listen closely you can hear what sounds like a xylophone giving it almost innocent quality that’s clear and refreshing.
MillionYoung is no rookie when it comes to performing since his EP album in 2009 entitled, “SunnDreamm” he is had a wide variety of performances. His experience includes touring internationally, and performing at live music festivals.
Currently, MillionYoung is working on his fourth album entitled,” Rare form”
