Scott Young

« Back to Glossary Index

Satin Doll, Dopamine Rider, Scott Young, Human. Multiple avenues of work coalesce around an artist whose time spent between Hong Kong, Berlin and Bristol has seen techno, dub and house experiments grace a variety of labels worldwide, most recently with ‘Post Peace’ on Italy’s Over Our Heads.

Young’s sound is often accompanied with hints of humour, futurism and digital paranoia amidst fragmented narrative clues of failed hard-drives, late nights and cheap hostels. Piece it all together and the duality of dancefloor convention vs playful, off the grid sound abstractions results in constant battle. One that ebbs and flows with regularity but also with surprise.

Having begun the journey between a tough choice in 2011, picking up an one-string guitar or a cracked copy of Ableton. After a slew of demos were sent to Samo DJ over many emails, Scott released his debut EP on Born Free Records. His tunes also appear on various labels such as Opal Tapes, Discos Capablanca, and guest vocal appearances on Samo DJ’s The Trilogy Tapes LKF & CAVEMPT mixtape. Scott’s music has been played by Breach and Steve Barker on BBC Radio while also having mixes featured on many online radio stations, such as NTS, Berlin Community Radio (R.I.P), LYL Radio, Noods Radio.
