Le Youth Drops his Emotive Debut Album, ‘Reminders’
Le Youth Drops his Emotive Debut Album, ‘Reminders’May 27, 2022
Los Angeles-based DJ and producer Le Youth‘s debut album has arrived.
First making a name for himself by pumping out jaunty and carefree house tracks for labels like Ultra, SPINNIN’ DEEP, and Homewerk, the last three years have seen the US artist take a radical turn in his musical output. This sonic rediscovery came after collecting vintage studio gear and obsessing over the history behind each piece of equipment, finding a new dance floor calling in their analog essence.
Following a deluge of melodic and progressive releases on Anjunabeats, Armada, and his PRGRSSN Records imprint, this culmination of three years of synth experimentation now comes to a head with the arrival of his Reminders LP on Lane 8’s celebrated label, This Never Happened. Featuring top-notch collaborations with acts like Sultan + Shepard, Gordi, LeyeT, RBBTS, and more, the 14-track album is a euphoric rollercoaster packed with radiant melodies and soul-stirring arrangements. Listen below.
“The theme behind this album and the title ‘Reminders’ may seem obvious, but for me, it’s more nuanced,” says Le Youth. “Reminders are feelings of nostalgia and unexpected memories. Like remembering a past life when I turn down that street we used to live on or hearing that album that we stayed up all night listening to.”
Le Youth’s debut album Reminders is out now via This Never Happened. Check it out on Beatport.
