The DJ: Alex Young
Props: This adolescent music man from Washington D.C. only started making music in 2011, and in two years has made it onto arguably the year’s biggest festival lineup: EDC Las Vegas. He cites hip-hop as his go-to genre, though his melodic mischief is definitely bass-fueled with deep synths, sprinkled generously with upbeat elements of cartoonish whimsy. From heavy trap to light-hearted chillout tunes, Young’s range is remarkable, and will assuredly grow more complex with age. We’re excited for a new EP coming out this year, but until then check the mad skillz on display in “Relapse”.
