“The Fuji EP” – Young David (Universal Vibes) [SINGLE] September 25, 2008Posted by rocketsciencemedia in Press Releases.
TITLE: The Fuji EP / ARTIST: Young David / LABEL: Universal Vibes
Young David, aka Dave Young, chose his artist name as a reminder of what it said on his office door before he took some ‘time out’ in the summer of 2006. Swapping the office for what an estate agent might describe as a ‘cosy’ basement studio in Stockholm, he now sits around making beats all day as well as producing for other artists and composing for TV and cinema to help pay the bills.
Music has been a way of life ever since the young Young David picked up a violin, aged six, and has taken up most of his spare time since then. Having played piano, keyboards and guitar in various groups, including a jazz orchestra and a 10-piece soul band, Dave might have continued along the semi-professional path if it weren’t for computers. But after the ups and downs of making studio demo tapes in the early 1990s, the feeling of liberation that came with being able to make it sound like a record at home was too good not to hold on to.
With endless evenings and weekends spent honing production skills, one of the best things about going full-time has been the freedom to work with other artists and musicians, even at 3 o’clock on a dark Tuesday afternoon. And the long Swedish winters have certainly been put to good effect. Breaking through in 2007 with remixes for Prima Donna on Dave Seaman‘s Audio Therapy label and (out soon in 2008) Butti 49 on Exceptional Records, Young David has gathered support for his own tracks from Simon Harrison (Basic Soul), Beyond Jazz and Paddy Freeform who snapped up four of them for his trail-blazing Universal Vibes label.
About the upcoming EP: it’s house but not as we know it, bridging the gap between soulful and minimal and blending crunchy mid-tempo party beats with intoxicating two-tone, jazz and dub flavours. Equally at home on the dance floor, iPod or lounge stereo, the tracks have a sense of space and depth and, above all, a real musicality which comes not (only) from the pushing of a few buttons, but from a lifelong quest. To be continued.
