Having started experimenting with music in an early age, JYT first fell in love with trance music but later discovered The Used
and picked up playing the guitar. His musical tastes kept on evolving, and he now cites Trentemøller
, Max Martin and Hank Solo
as the three producers who have most influenced his sounds, while considering Panic! At The Disco
his favorite band of all time. The influences can be easily heard in JYT’s music: massive electronic soundscapes melt with beats that stem distinctively from modern rap, while his lyrics nod heavily to commercial pop and alternative rock. The more organic vibes can be attributed to his older siblings’ work in classical music. Considering JYT’s chops in songwriting and production, as well as his roots in deejaying and keen ear for fresh beats, he truly might be the next luminary to blow up.
