Kicking off Summer 2018 as he means to go on, Youngr continues to bring the heat and announces the release of ‘Drive,’ his newest single following ‘This Is Not An Album’ (a collection of his releases to date) which was led by recent single ‘Ooh Lordy.’
‘Drive’ is the undeniable sleek Summer anthem we’re all yearning for, with its slapping bass and punchy beats, combining aspects of EDM and Pop to create a sound that will most certainly stick in the heads of current and new fans alike. Youngr has proven once again his ability to combine multiple genres and sounds, whilst still maintaining his signature aesthetic.
On ‘Drive’, Youngr explains: “Have you ever had that feeling of wanting to just get in your car with your partner/best friend/brother/sister/kids/mum/dog/cat and just drive somewhere? Well this song is about that feeling. Sugar coated in a nice bite-sized tale of romance”.
2018 is already proving to be an unstoppable year for the multi-instrumentalist, having recently released ‘Remember’(the Michael McDonald / Warren G re-work), as well the ‘Ooh Lordy’ Blinkie remix. Returning with ‘Drive’, he continues to prove and further his creativity whilst creating a consistent and familiar sound, which has helped him spend the past 12 months performing in front of some of his biggest audiences to date on a global scale, whichincluded key support slots with tropical house commander Matoma, in the US.
2017 saw Youngr release a string of triumphant singles and bootlegs (including funk-filled bootleg ‘Give It Up’, a Lee Dorsey reworking with rising UK House producer Endor), his viral take on Temper Trap’s ‘Sweet Disposition’ (surpassing 45M views) and the incredible ‘93’ video (a collaboration with award-winning Valentine Reinhardt – Tame Impala, Nike – and Manu Cossu – Drake, A$AP Rocky).
This has accelerated Youngr’s accolades to over 40 million streams, 30 million video views, performances at over 50 festivals, sold-out tours across Europe and NorthAmerica, an Indiantour and a momentous headlineshow at packed London venue Heaven.
