Introducing: Young & Sick

Read my recent interview with my talented pal, Young & Sick. He’s on tour all summer, so be sure to catch him!

There’s something really special about making the music you want to make, exactly the way you want to make it. In 2014, it’s not just about defining your sound, it’s about defining your image and “brand,” and all the while working to maintain a sense of artistic freedom (and dignity). Some artists are better at it than others, and for the true masters, the idea of compromise never even crosses their mind.

For singer, producer and visual artist Nick Van Hofwegen aka Young & Sick, his story begins with a big of luck and a lot of talent. But isn’t that how these stories are supposed to start out? Worldly travels and chance encounters afforded him the ability to develop and nurture a sound he can truly call all his own. From glossy pop ballads to soulful, hazy love songs drifting out from underneath a stack of vintage records, Young & Sick’s sound is one that strikes a chord in music fans of every variety.

Earlier this year, Van Hofwegen released his debut self-titled LP on Harvest Records. A beautifully produced menagerie of love songs covering every emotion that goes along with it. Worn and grazed in all the right places after trips to SXSW and Coachella, Young & Sick now readies his Continuum EP, as well as several European dates.

Join us as we uncover the mystery and peel back the layers behind multi-faceted artist Young & Sick.

Whendays Untru Love II (The Whendays Nu Love Remix)

I’ve got to hand it to tha homie Glenn at XLR8R on this one. I’ve been getting into a lot of this dancey disco shit as of late, and this remix is right up my alley. Like an Al Greene-infused, slowed the fuck down version of an Azari & III track, the Whendays speak right to my ecstacy-loving 18 year old, acid house was still cool, self. Makes me yearn for a roller rink, some booty shorts and a shiny disco ball reflecting above me.

P.S. Now that SXSW 2012 is over, posts will be back in full swing. I also write for Shuffler.fm, Subrewind, and some other dope places I will be announcing soon. Thanks so much for all the support thus far, and I hope you dig all the goodies I have in store for the rest of 2012.

Teenhaze My Girl

If Bright Eyes decided to write a love song that didn’t involve tragic heartbreak or him wanting to kill himself, this is what it would sound like. Teenhaze is an optimistic facade drenched in sultry haze.

The Swedish solo project of whom I’ll just refer to as “T” for now, has a full length record on the horizon, in addition to his London band’s debut album which drops in early 2012. It’s safe to say you’ll be hearing a lot more from Teenhaze in the months to come. Bring on the reverb.
