Electronic Youth


Spring 2013, and Electronic Youth stand poised to cement less than two years of hard graft and critical acclaim into commercial success. A summer smash is in the offing with their take on the Angie Stone classic “Wish I Didn’t Miss You” featuring Alex Hart now signed to New State Recordings and awaiting launch.Tastemaker support for their sound from the likes of Skream and Benga, Jamie Jones, Maceo Plex, Claude Von Stroke, Luca C, & Mark Knight compounds the output of their own productions released 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.Topping things off are their DJ performances, with recent UK sets for Loco Dice @ Electric Brixton, Def Mix 25th Anniversary & Stealth (both Ministry of Sound) along with their long standing “Random” residency, and a calendar about to populate with summer gigs including UK’s High Definition Festival (pre party), soon to be announced Ibiza action, and a return to Stealth @ Ministry of Sound.T hat’s now, but how about “then”...
