This rad little gem just appeared in my inbox today – finally a golden album of luscious, super interesting and eclectic originals and remixes to pique my interest. Who thought someone could rejig Memoryhouse into a fresh new song that retained its dreaminess but adds dizzying loops and hypnotic euphorics into the mix? Luminary Youth is the fresh talent behind this exciting material. A producer inspired by J Dilla, Madlib and Star Slinger, his honed and sharp compositions are excitingly succinct and polished, never relying on one sound or sample for too long, it cuts in and out of rational and warped states on a bender of beautiful melodies and rare symphonies. His second EP, Weekend Dreams (released a couple of months ago with Astral Tourism) features remixes of Memoryhouse, Cults and Warpaint, and he’s also done a magnetic rework of Grouper‘s ‘Alien Observor’.
