Young-Motion Remix Colab not to be Erased
Erase, an emotional single about letting go of past love, is a powerful release from Native Young. The release of the single includes an uplifting house remix by DJ duo Black Motion, the original version of the track, along with a heart-breaking acoustic version of the song – a strong statement for a dynamic project that’s ready to be shown to the world.
Yannick Wilde, the creator behind Native Young, comments on the song, saying that Erase is a song of lament and yearning, which sings about letting go of the past lover, but also simultaneously wishing to go back to the beginning and experience the love all over again.
Teaming up with Black Motion for the remix of the single, was a genius move on Wilde’s part. The song could not have asked for a better team to compliment Native Young’s sound. When asked how he would describe Native Young – South African producer and front man of the project, Yannick Wilde commented that is still is a constantly evolving tapestry of culture, its emotions and of course the melody.
Beginning as a home recording experiment for Yannick in 2015 – the live Native Young collective now hosts a menagerie of rotating talent in Africa and Europe. His music itself is focused on emotional storytelling, raw African rhythm and the fusion of electronic and acoustic instruments – a combination which has carved out a space that’s completely his own in the musical landscape both locally and abroad for this young independent artist.
