Santa Ana is quickly becoming a well-known hub for all things art and music in Orange County, with Downtown Santa Ana being the heart of all the action. And what makes us so special are the collaborations that come from such a close-knit community. One, in particular, has grown a massive following among locals.
Meet Daniel Jamezzz and Erick Yung; two longtime friends who are both seasoned contributors to the growing music scene in downtown. In 2019, this dynamic duo created the summer anthem “Mariposa” which marked the beginning of their musical journey together. And just two days ago, Daniel & Erick released their first collaborative album comprised of eight songs (and a whole lot of hype). The album is called “The Experience” which is different for every listener. Whether your body is moved by the intricately detailed production from Daniel, or your heart is swooned by the rich melodies and vulnerable lyrics sung by Erick, this album takes you on a journey of sound waves and heartbreak. But what sticks out the most is the clear collaboration between the two. Their friendship can be heard sonically throughout the entire album, easily identifying their contributions.
Follow Daniel Jamezzz & Erick Yung on Instagram and listen to their new album, “The Experience”, on all streaming platforms!
