Russ Young (b.1988, Lincoln UK) is a UK based producer. His work is an exploration of sound design and electro acoustic composition. Drawn towards detailed textures, drones and simple melodies, Russ Young’s music is a dynamic collage of assembled audio.
I made this short collection of microsound collages in the early hours of the morning before work. They began to take on a restful dream-like quality which I enhanced by imagining nocturnal scenes, cave systems, caverns, islands, and night skies. The title of the EP makes a tentative reference to Aldous Huxley’s Utopian classic ‘The Island’. I hope that the listener, too is transported to imaginary places of their own and feels rested by this music.
