If-Only Mag Mix

Mix for Concept In Practice series

An undeniable sense dissonance permeates Scott Young‘s last EP. Released on Discos Capablanca, Ket City‘s dissociative abstraction of house tropes made for a disorientating listen, but this was far from the first foray into dizzying territory. In fact, Young has made this something of a trend. Trawl through the Hong Kong native’s back catalogue, and you’ll find similarly off-kilter releases under aliases like Satin Doll and Dopamine Rider.

Since its release, Young has gone from taking a step back to readying new material, possibly under a different alias. Emerging from a much-needed break galvanised and rejuvenated, he continues to confound and beguile with a mix centred around the theme of ‘hyper-mentalism’.
