Autumn 2014, and Electronic Youth are 10 months into a hectic release and gig schedule for the year.
They’ve followed 2013’s UK No.2 club hit take on the Angie Stone classic “Wish I Didn’t Miss You” featuring Alex Hart, with own label releases including “I Would Leave” and “Diver” (both featuring Shanaz), “Orange Van” with Alex Hart, a storming cover of Fallout’s early deep house classic “The Morning After”, alongside side productions for the Shapeshifters new label Love Inc. as The EY Project, and a full release for Electronic Youth Feat. Rita Campbell “Took My Love” on CR2.
Add to these singles a compilation of productions to date “Was, Is & Now”, and a just released Summer 2014 compilation and its “busy busy” for the output on Sexy Trash Digital; the imprint started by Electronic Youth to showcase their take on “house” with 80’s electro and early house influences, deep bass lines and tuff beats, all aligned with a veneer of urban vocal.
Mixmag commented on “I Would Leave” in their magazine review.
“Their classic house sound touches on the 90s, but merges it with the current bass house sound of Disclosure or Cyril Hahn. This is a brilliant vocal track that has the ability to cross over. Electronic Youth just get better and better!”
Robert Owens commented on “Diver” “cool track…”
Fat Boy Slim commented on “The Morning After” “Old skool as fuck!”
Chicken Lips said… “Great track! What’s good is the mix dynamic is spot on” and Spoony got excited… “Another Banger guys… love it!”
Tastemaker support for their sound from the likes of Pete Tong, Steve Smart, Soul Avengerz, Artful Dodger, Skream, Jamie Jones, Maceo Plex, Claude Von Stroke, Luca C, DJ Spoony, Mark Knight, Fat Boy Slim, Robert Owens, Andre Crom, KORT, Dave Seamen, Nightmares on Wax, Miguel Migs, Hoxton Whores, Seamus Haji.
Oh… did we mention the remixes? Come end of 2014, dancefloors will be reverberating to the slightly large EY remix of Sam Skillz & Roland Clarke’s “Resist” on Conkrete, and hazy but happy memories of summers remixes of Guru Josh “My Burning Bush” and Solange’s “Tick Tock” both of which cracked the UK Club Chart.
2014’s live sets to date include “We Are Fstvl” & Loco Dice’s “Used & Abused” at Brixton O2 Academy (second year running). Supporting Faithless at Electric Brixton, their residency for ‘Random’, headlining Data Transmission’s 6th birthday at Ministry of Sound London, and regular Pacha London appearances.
