Bay Area wordsmith ymtk has been consistent with releases leading up to his new album, All The Right Places. The album hosts 12-tracks featuring fellow Bay area artists like IAMSU!, Marc E Bassy, Too $hort, & many others.
ymtk sheds light on his new collective:
This is my best body of work to date. I’m not only hella excited for people to hear it but excited to contribute a slightly .different/eclectically fresh sound that’s true to myself & the Bay Area. I think it’s important that we’re recognized for just how versatile we really are as a community of artists, creators, & tastemakers. As much love as we get, sometimes I feel like being a young Oakland artist such as myself comes with a stigma of only being able to do one thing & sound one way. Me & Zach (Ekzakt) really put a lot of ourselves in it & I think people will be able to feel that when they have a listen & catch the vibe. Hopefully we can damn near really bubble of this jawn, haha. As well as inspire others to explore their creativity & not be afraid to do something a little outside the box.
