Junior mass media major Taylor Ashworth is one half of $unday $ervice, an EDM duo who plan to release their first EP titled “The Beat Don’t Stop” in the coming month. The album is filled with trap and dubstep music.
“Overall, I make EDM music, which naturally has a lot of subgenres and different elements,” Ashworth said. “My creativity tends to lean more toward dubstep and trap as the main genres I create.”
21-year old Ashworth first delved into creating EDM – electronic dance music, for the uninitiated – in the summer of 2012. He became interested after seeing his friend and roommate, Hunter Auld, working with the music.
Together, the friends work under the moniker $unday $ervice, a name that Auld came up with on the spot only a few months after the two friends began working together.
Ashworth cites Flosstradamus, Chicago-based trap music DJs, as his favorite musical duo, though he said he is often inspired by classic rock as well.
“I do like the recent influx of EDM in pop music because I couldn’t stand pop music until recently, and it’s cool seeing it go a bit more mainstream,” Ashworth said.
Ashworth signed with the label about a year ago after being contacted online by a manager who had come across his work on Ashworth’s Soundcloud account.
Having been an avid piano and guitar player all his life, Ashworth said he possesses the essential groundwork for any musician of understanding melodies and concepts of music.
Though Ashworth has been offered to play over ten shows at festivals, he is currently keeping his options open. He wants to complete his education and graduate next December before figuring out where his music will take him next.
