Yousef's newest will leave you 'Begging' for more.
Yousef enters his second decade of dance and remains one of the most prolific talents in the game. Even though his career has evolved he’s stayed true to every-changing musical landscape. His amazing technical abilities have continued to progress over the years and he now functions as a promoter, label owner, as well as producer.
His new 2nd full studio album ‘A Product of Your Environment’ represents an aural snapshot of his journey to date. It’s Yousef distilling the emotions, experiences and excitement that have been a part of his career so far, representative not only of his artistic growth but also what he has undertaken as a man.
‘Beg’ is one of the finest cuts taken from the new LP; a powerful, driving, groove-led club excursion which harnesses the passion and energy that Yousef injects into both his live sets and productions. Sleek and frenetic with delicate touches of melody and husky vocal interjections, ‘Beg’ has been a staple record for Yousef over the last few months and continues to do serious damage on the dancefloor.
On the remix front, burgeoning UK producer Hot Since 82 delivers a truly exceptional reworking. Since breaking onto the scene with his Hot James Vol.1 on Noir Music earlier on the year he has continued to impress, and this remix is typical of his production style. Creepingly enticing atmospherics are backed up with hefty amounts of low-end thump for an effortlessly chic reinterpretation of the original record.
‘Beg’ is out now on Defected.
