I’m surprised that Millionyoung isn’t bigger than he already is: the solo project of Mike Diaz employs the perfect mesh of chillwave and synth pop, taking the bests of the two subgenres and creating some glorious synth-soaked music.
Anyways, the South Florida-native’s forthcoming full length, Variable, will be released this time next week (February 12th) via Rix/Old Flame Records, and we’re lucky enough to be premiering the record’s title track!
As mentioned above, Millionyoung‘s synth-tastic sound is absolutely fresh, further illustrated in “Variable”, as Diaz creates something you would expect if Cut Copy hopped aboard the chillwave train, all over a massive, funky beat. The vocals are drenched in reverb; the overlying beat, hinted with some disco-influenced undertones; with some fresh synth-lines that will get you off your chair. What more could you want?
