T-Mass & Krysta Youngs Put A Fresh Spin On “Somebody’s Watching Me”

Published

on

T-Mass returns to Dim Mak with a spooky phonk remake of Rockwell’s 1984 classic “Somebody’s Watching Me” in collaboration with Krysta Youngs. After “Somebody To Love” with Staarz from last month, the experienced producer teams up with a singer-songwriter who has a long list of credits as a writer/co-writer and previous releases on such labels as Armada Music, Spinnin’ Records, Dim Mak, and more.

The fresh and bold phonk touch of T-Mass makes it a perfect blend of past and present. Krysta Youngs has several all-star songwriting credentials on her resume, including Billboard #1 hit for Tomorrow X Together’s album, for which she wrote the title track, and BTS’ track “On” featuring Sia, as well as Dim Mak’s release “Habit” with Rain Man.

T-Mass recently released another remake of “Somebody to Love” with Staarz, also on Steve Aoki’s imprint.

T-Mass

T-Mass is an EDM trap legend and a real-deal FL studio wizard from California. He first started off as a Discovery Project winner for Insomniac but has come very far since. Some songs, including multiple official remixes for the Chainsmokers and Illenium, have multi-millions of plays. His extensive catalog across the internet has accumulated over a billion views. In recent times, T-Mass has returned in full force, stepping into new slices of EDM, creating phonk and house rhythms. Within a couple of months of his return, he’s already releasing music on some of the most prestigious labels, including Trap Nation, No Copyright Sounds (NCS), Dim Mak, Trap City, Tribal Trap and more to come. T-Mass is known for making entire songs in single sessions. He’s played shows all over the world, including Australia, China, Canada, USA, Italy, India, and at festivals, including Global Dance and Beyond Wonderland, to name a few. Although T-Mass has an interest in multiple genres of EDM and has a current phonk focus, heavy bass, and a wild show are guaranteed.

Krysta Youngs

She is an artist with a true voice and a Billboard #1 & Platinum songwriter. Her “out the box” approach to songwriting has kept her songs honest, autobiographical, and sonically hers whether she’s singing them or not. Her single “Habit,” released on Dim Mak with Rain Man has over 25 million streams across all platforms and charted on the Billboard Dance Charts. In addition to her features on Spinnin’, Armada, Lowly, Sony, Trap City, and Dim Mak, her release with Parov Stelar, one of the pioneers of electro swing, has earned her accolades in the dance world. Krysta’s songs can be heard on hit television shows like MTV’s The Real World, Lalaloopsy, ESPN, Selling Sunset, and Keeping Up with the Kardashians, where her emotional, unique vocals have captivated audiences. As a songwriter she has co-written for and collaborated with other creatives and artists such as Philip Lawrence, Evan Bogart, JR Rotem, Melanie Fontana, Marty James, JQue Smith, Marshmello, Anthony Evans, LAGANJA Estranja, Danielle Cohn, Netta, Jones Jeberg, Stray Kids, Wengie, Disco Fries, Loren, Boa, Taeyeon, Oh My Girl, Rania, Navi, Luna Snow, SUHO, TXT, Twice, Busters, Girlkind, and BTS. In 2022, BTS’ album “Proof” went to #1 on the Billboard Charts and included “On” a song she co-wrote in 2020, which was their lead single featuring SIA. That album, Map of the Soul 7, went Platinum and shot to #1 on the Billboard Charts. “Up No More” & “Scorpion” with Twice, “The View” with Stray Kids, and “Cuckoo” with Netta are some more examples of Krysta’s songwriting credits. Recently, she snagged another Billboard #1 with the latest Tomorrow X Together album, which she wrote the title track. She also has another BTS single called “The Planet,” which is the title track to their latest album, “The Planet.”
