Born and raised in Hong Kong, Scott Young‘s music traverses a wide sonic palette, encapsulating leftfield dance music, musique concrete, experimental film soundtracks and lush ambient excursions.
Following a noteworthy appearance on Samo DJ’s Born Free imprint, a series of accomplished releases on Discos Capablanca and a mesmeric contribution to the 2019 Opal Tapes compilation ‘Amateur Vampires’, Young returns with his most significant output to date.
Comprised of five tracks that work towards different styles, Ket City is intended as an intimate ode to the United Kingdom, and a response to the oppression of algorithmically filtered modernity and the drudgery of work. Diving into hypnotic, artfully fractured dancefloor movements, dub-dilated drum workouts & heavy-lidded ambient zones, Ket City is a diverse prospect that nevertheless reveals the execution of a unique signature.
A cerebral, tranquilised, escapist trip that channels ambiguity and positivity in equal measure, and evokes the influence of Mille Plateaux, Wordsound, Mark Fell and Matt Steel’s SND project as well as contemporary operators like Huerco S and Madteo.
Release date: April 13th, 2020.
