ABOUT CLAUDE YOUNG:
One of the leading DJs and producers from Detroit’s Third Wave, Claude Young combed the Motor City’s softer, melodic side with the minimalist filter of Robert Hood and Jeff Mills to create functional dance music with emotion. After joining Jeff Mills on his radio show during the early ’90s, Young debuted with the One Complete Revolution EP on his own Utensil label. He also recorded as Project 625 for another of his own labels (DOW) and with Anthony “Shake” Shakir on his third label, Frictional. Besides other tracks for Acacia (as Rhythm Formation) and 7th City (with Dan Bell as Brother From Another Planet), Young began making the transition to the global techno scene with a single for Andrew Weatherhall’s Emissions Audio Output Recordings (as Being) and DJAX-Up-Beats (as Claude Young). He followed with several high-profile remixes during 1995, including tracks by Inner City, Astral Pilot, Innerzone Orchestra, Joey Beltram and Slam (with the help of Ian O’Brien). Young’s first full-length, the 1996 DJ Kicks compilation, showed him in fine form, perhaps the best DJ to come out of Detroit since Jeff Mills. One year later, his debut album, Soft Thru for Dutch Elypsia Records, earned him much praise for its sensibilities, uniting the minimalist with the melodic to great effect. Claude Young has continued to release music with a focus on quality and innovation. Touring both solo and with Takasi Nakajima as “Different World,” Young stole the show at this year’s DEMF with a hard-mixed set that left attendees buzzing. After all the fanfare and years of appreciation we decided to bring him to LA for PRIME.
