Claude Young wants to live in a world where every artist is free to express themselves without being boxed into genre specific categories.
As a composer, his work has been used by BBC Radio 4 & Sony Playstation. As a DJ he has mixed compilations for !K7 (Germany), Sony Music Entertainment Japan & Jeff Mills Axis Records (USA) to name just a few. He’s remixed records for Kevin Saunderson/Inner City, Carl Craig, 4Hero, Sven Vath & many others. He’s one half of the techno live / DJ act Different World with his good friend Takasi Nakajima.
he’s not writing music or touring, you can find him enjoying everything his newly adopted home town of Portland, Oregon (PDX) has to offer, from live music to independent cinema, hanging with close friends, or taking in dinner and a movie with his partner / collaborator Trisha.
His last full length solo album entitled “Celestial Bodies” (physical copies available in Japan only / digital world wide) was praised by media outlets including a rather fine review up by UK magazine Data Transmission.
His main focus in 2015 and beyond is to release more music independently through his website & to collaborate with live musicians & visual artist on a regular basis.
