If-Only Mag Mix

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’.
