For Point of View Interview #13, I've had the pleasure to interview producer Yung Wall Street. From Austin, Texas, Yung Wall Street has been pushing a break through with some of the most impressive music lately. From "Baby" via Fool's Gold Records to one of my personal favorites "Onesie," Yung Wall Street has a knack for developing a style where he can produce diverse tunes that move souls. Being a part of the Moving Castle Collective for almost two years now, Yung Wall Street will be making big moves such as touring with Jai Wolf for his NYC dates and also premiering on the lineup of this year's Sunset  Music Fest, taking place in Tampa, Florida. Not only does he have shows for your near future but Yung Wall Street is also dropping a new remix of Manila Killa's "All That's Left," very soon. To get a feel of Yung Wall Street and his music, check out the interview I did with him below!

Question 1: What got you into making music?
I began playing the piano and trombone around age 11. Around 14 I began composing my own music just for fun, but didn't download my first DAW (digital audio workstation) until my senior year of high school. I didn't really get into making music until I was in college when EDM was beginning to pick up steam. 

Question 2: What people intrigue you or inspire you to pursue music? (Can be in any field i.e. music, writers, etc.) 
As cliché as it sounds, my other friends that are also young producers inspire me most to pursue music. Hearing what they're working on always sparks new ideas for me. It's truly amazing to see all of the friends I've made around the country playing festivals and shows on a regular basis.

Question 3: How would you define your style of music?
I always struggle to define my style of music. Every time I sit down to work on a track I honestly have no idea what direction it's going to go in. No matter what direction it goes in I always make sure I love the chord progression.

Question 4: What influences your style of work?
A lot of R&B and hip hop. Although I have more electronic influence now, R&B and hip hop is what I listened to most before I began producing.

Question 5: What is your favorite track that you have produced so far?
I would have to say "Moonlight Tower". When I was writing it I remember looking out at the skyline of my hometown, Austin, TX. Even though I've heard it hundreds of times the intro still gives me the chills. 

Question 6: How far do you plan to take your music, any plans? Who would you like to work with in the future?
Right now I'm just going with the flow! I have a few other entrepreneurial endeavors I'm working on so I haven't been able to fully devote my time to music just yet. I would really love to work with Jeremih and Tory Lanez one day!
