Listen to 'Young Wild Free' :
As always with a Self Tape release there are the unique sounds of intricate future garage melodies combined with “Burial” style transposed vocals and introspective downtempo reverb heavy ambience. Feeling as if you’ve walked into an underground rave already at full swing with “87 Parade” and moving on to other club bangers such as “Where I Go”, the emotional soundscape of “Holding On to You” and the mouth-watering title track “Young Wild Free”, you are taken on a contemplative journey, requiring you to look inside and collect the individual pieces of beauty that each of the ten extraordinary tracks has to offer.
‘Young Wild Free’ provides a profound exploration into contemporary dance music, what can be achieved and the boundaries that can be pushed within the medium. Drawing comparisons to artists such as Bonobo, Mount Kimbie and, Jamie XX, Self Tape finds himself in immaculate company as the world listens, watches and anticipates his further success.
