Zoom interview has been edited for clarity.
Long time friends Lucas Kozinski & Jameel Farruk have been making music and working on each others’ solo work for years. Now the Philadelphia natives have come together coalescing their combined strengths as the artist duo Fried Monk x Beautiful-Fortune. Earlier this May the duo dropped a new EP titled ‘Here As One’ featuring lead single ‘Planet B’. The EP is a curious mix of groove laden genres like Electro Pop, Indie, & Hip Hop, while lyrically focusing on more abstract themes like the passage of time, outer space, empathy, and isolation. I talked with the duo on a Zoom call to discuss their EP, music influences, nostalgia, Lucas‘ Sleepless Sound studio, their creative process, and lots more!
