Sad Boys Producer Gud FKA Yung Gud Returns With Obfuscated R&B Single

Stockholm producer and noted Yung Lean/Sad Boys affiliate, Yung Gud, has abbreviated his name to simply Gud, and today THUMP is excited to premiere his debut track under the abbreviated moniker. “Body Horror” finds Micke Berlander running obfuscated, hazy R&B through a grab bag of blemishing distortion techniques, decorating it with light discordance and snippets of ravey synth patches for texture. Fittingly, it shares its name with a style of fiction known for its gut-churning corporeal thrills.

“My first original in almost two years,” he said to THUMP via email. “Receive it with love and respect.”

When Noisey interviewed Yung Lean in 2014, he said: “The best thing about music is that it’s invisible.”
