We've got a little exclusive for you here today. Upcoming producer/remixer/artist, friend of the blog and all round good egg, Tronik Youth has kindly given Yer Mam! readers first dibs on his debut single proper, 'We Are...' (gotta love the ellipses) for your listening pleasure.
According to his MySpace, TY describes his sound as "Patrick Cowley fighting the Sex Pistols" and I have to agree. There's a mirrorball glitz to the track, but it's a mirrorball that's seen a few back alley rucks in its time and has the scuff-marks and the bloodstains to prove it. An arresting mix of grit and glitter, it's both retro and modern, old school and new, recalling the bleepiness of early Warp, with touches of Kraftwerk austerity, but re-tooled for the 21st Century dancefloor. We really like it and we reckon you will too...
Tronik Youth - We Are... (mp3)
'We Are...' comes out on Back Yard on October 1st and is backed by remixes from Punks Jump Up, Franz And Shape and Dolby-Anol. You can catch Tronik Youth at Kill 'Em All at Camden Barfly this Saturday (25th). He'll also be appearing at the Vice parties in Manchester and Birmingham on the 13th and 21st September respectively, not to mention he'll be tearing the roof off The Roadhouse on October 5th as part of the line-up for Yer Mam!'s favourite monthly hoedown, Get Girl. Kill Baddies. Save Planet.
Here's a bonus for you too; Tronik Youth's remix of Chromeo's 'Bonafied Lovin''.
