You can be pretty sure that when the gatekeepers of new music at the BBC, Zane Lowe and Mistajam play your records, you’re onto a winner; even more impressive when it’s your debut. The ‘Girl’ EP, released in early 2013 by 23 year old Youan, is one such record.

A master class in club music with a rare honest, human edge, ‘Girl’ – and Youan’s forthcoming EP ‘Your Trust’ – demonstrate a knack for a distinctly fresh blend of electronic melodies and layered vocals, something the Midlands man has honed from the tender age of 16 when he started out with a drum machine and old Korg Groove Box.

Supported by further names such as A Trak, Rudimental, DJ Zinc and Kidnap Kid, Youan has already produced stand-out remixes for the likes of Empire Of The Sun, Symbols bass Kastle and Mikil Pane. With a slot at Londons Fabric supporting Zane Lowe under his belt file Youan somewhere between Hot Chip and Disclosure in that folder marked ‘Classy, Effortless, Emotive and Modern’.
