Young N Based: Alex Young
Lean, mean, and under 18, Young N Based is a spotlight on talented underage producers from various genres and cultures.
Our debut YnB artist is none other than 15-year old Washington, DC producer ▲lex Young. Alex first came to my attention when he sent me his first public production, Burnt, under the alias Pete Bort. It was a simple moombahton track sampling Richie Spice’s Marijuana and had really great energy; the production was clean so I told him to keep in touch… and thank God that I did. Since then he’s moved on from moombahton and released 5 new tracks, each one better than the next. Coming in at the top of the list is Relapse, a powerful trap tune with that stadium-vibe level of intensity to give Flosstradamus a run for their money. My next favourite isn’t for everyone, I warn ya. Palm Trees re-purposes Katy Perry in ways I didn’t think possible and despite being separated into very distinct, different breakdowns it progresses in a logical way (for me at least). If you like any of these tunes and want a free download, just hit “Buy” to be taken to its respective Mediafire link. Last, but not least, be sure to show Alex some love of Facebook, SoundCloud, and Twitter if you dig his stuff.
