Mikey Young - Your Move Vol. 1
For Your Move Vol. 1, Young becomes an electronic producer, creating five spacious instrumental tracks that are upbeat, sunny and cinematic, with a solid core of pop smarts. Young is a Jedi master of aural seduction -- catching your ear and rubbing it where it produces the most pleasure. And if we weren't all consenting adults here, there could be some codes violated. But happily, we are adults and can sit back and enjoy one of the premier left-field standouts of the year.
Your Move Vol. 1 is out now in digital, vinyl and cassette formats. It is the first of a series of synth pop albums by different artists that will be released by Moniker Records in the ensuing months. The unusual name has an interesting explanation. Each artist will make a move on a chess board when the artist's album is released. Then Moniker will make a move, followed by the next artist, and so on.
