Yung Hurn (* 1995;[1] bourgeois Julian Sellmeister) [2] is an Austrian Hip-Hop-Musician from Viennese district Donaustadt.[3] Since 2016 he has also appeared under the name of K. Ronaldo as a fictitious older brother of himself, with the K. standing either for Kristallo or for Kristus.[4][5][6] He is part of the Berlin-based artist collective Live From Eart.[7] He released his album "Y" on November 8, 2019.

Life

Yung Hurn originates from the Viennese district Hirschstetten in the 22nd district Donaustadt.[8] In his youth (up to U15) he played football for SV Hirschstetten. In 2014, the early school leaver[9] got to know the Viennese rapper Rap4Fikk and shortly thereafter began rapping himself.[10] Together with the Producer Lex Lugner Yung Hurn recorded the EP Wiener Linien in 2015. In July, he released his debut Mixtape 22, whose track Nein was voted one of the top 10 best national music tracks of the year by readers of the German hip-hop magazine Juice.

2016 followed the Krocha Tape and under the name K. Ronaldo the mixtape I Wanted to Kill Myself but Today is my Mothers Birthday.[11] Furthermore Yung Hurn released together with the german rapper RIN the independent Single Bianco.[12][13] This was intended for the joint album Mafia of Love, the release of which is uncertain after RIN's retirement, and was voted single of the year in the Juice annual charts.[14][15]

On December 23, 2016, the compilation In Memory of Yung Hurn – Classic Compilation was released, the first release of which could only be purchased digitally and streamed on popular portals.[16] The album also received a limited vinyl edition in June 2017.[17] In 2015, Yung Hurn had declared that his music would always be available for free download.[18] In 2017, the EP Love Hotel and the two Singles Popo and Ok Cool were released. In June of the same year, Yung Hurn announced via Twitter that he no longer wanted to do rap after 2017.[19] In December 2017, at the same time as releasing the single GGGut, he announced that he wanted to release a first album with the title 1220 in spring 2018, which was officially released on 4 May 2018 and DJ Stickle.[20]

With the release of the single Cabrio, shortly before his appearance at the Donauinselfest 2019, he announced a new album Y for the same year.[21] He also announced in an interview with the radio station FM4 that he was working on an album with the Love Hotel Band.[22]

Style and Influence

Yung Hurn's early music was soon assigned by journalists to the cloud rap that was originally born in USA at the end of the 2000s.[23] In fact, in his first tracks, according to his own statements, he was inspired not only by the Horrorcore representatives and trap pioneers Three 6 Mafia, but also by the Californian rapper Lil B, who is often referred to as the founder of cloud rap.[24][10] In a show of the music magazine Tracks by the TV station Arte about him and the Cologne cloud rapper LGoony, Yung Hurn also said regarding his musical influences that he listens to indie as well as "deep dirty techno" and psychedelic rock. Thus, Tame Impala or Falco, but especially the Beatles, had strongly influenced him. He can also be seen on the show with a record by Jimi Hendrix.[23][18]

Yung Hurn took a path away from pure hip-hop with the Love Hotel-EP, which had been produced by DJ Stickle and announced in the context of the video premiere of the associated R&B track Rot.[25][26] On Valentine's Day the second track Diamant was released, a retro pop song atypical for Yung Hurn without any rap interludes. The video in the style of the 80s shows the song interpreted by the Love Hotel Band, which includes Yung Hurn and the Berlin actor Lars Eidinger.[27] The band now also performs live.[28]
