The electronic scene in Vancouver is heavily underrated, with a growing number of huge rising names in the city including Haywyre, Ekali, Pat Lok, Sleepy Tom, Pomo and so many more. The Canadian west coast city is booming with raw talents and is on the verge of making waves on a global scale. The scene is boosted by a substantial fan following, with constant events attracting electronic music suckers and community shaping collectives such as Groundwerk. It's the proud home of renown Monstercat label, which heavily focuses on new and innovative music and loyal engagement with the fan community. Vancouver is flourishing in not only scenic treasures, but also boasts an eclectic array of electronic game-changers, each with distinctive approaches and sounds to contribute to the electronic world.
Young Bombs adds to this list of talents, with each remix sporting an uplifting luminous energy in it's production. The duo made up of Martin and Tristan, have a spectacular flair and taste in terms of curating vocals for their tracks. Each track's sound is significantly organic and listeners may be surprised to realize that majority of their tracks are remixes. Their atmospheric nature and warm overcoat creates an authenticity in each track, making it appear as if vocals chosen were fatefully paired with their sound designs. In their latest remix of LA-based Billie Ellish, "Ocean Eyes", they beautifully pair her angelic vocals with explosive synth work. The remix is a beautiful tribute to Martin's late father who had recently battled cancer. A stark contrast from the original's more sombre tones, the duo have shifted the vibe, giving it a euphoric lift complete with cinematic drum work. This hopeful sensation evoked by the remix's uplifting tendencies create for an unexpected flip of the original. Young Bombs is a prime example of Vancouver's rising artists in the electronic scene with their remixes. Young Bombs have mastered a solid blend of pop and electronic while still maintaining integrity in their craft as it's doused in their rawest emotions.
