Trevor Powers is the genius behind the recent independent electro-pop sensation Youth Lagoon. The more recent hit “Cannons” is nothing short of the word, ‘genius’, as he quickly captures you with a familiarly beautiful keyboard riff. Having released this track about 3 months ago it is hardly new this age of music, but it’s definitely new to me and I’m sure many more. Currently Trevor hosts the Youth Lagoon name on a number of music and social networks for his fans to interact and share his growing music catalogue.

This Boise, Idaho native has made his mark in the European circuit, and with that growing fan base he has sparked the interest of Youth Lagoon’s current independent label Fat Possum Records. With only 3 tracks on soundcloud, it is only the beginning for this modern day composer, with a sure-to-be bright future in store for Youth Lagoon and Trevor Powers altogether. As I’m sure you noticed the “Free Download” mention at the top, simply visit Youth Lagoon’s bandcamp site for 2 free downloads including “Cannons”.

Meet Max Kline, a London-based electro producer who goes by the stage name MaXXXimum. Recently, he released a new track entitled “Destroy the Dancefloor” which I have taken a serious liking to. It has even supplanted The Shrugs‘ nearly two week hold of my cell phone’s ringtone. I once read, of MaXXXimum’s basslines, that the “XXX” in his name was appropriate because his basslines were so dirty.
Klein has been garnering local attention and has been featured on BBC’s “Introducing…,” which strives to support unsigned, undiscovered, and under the radar artists. You can hear a portion of that segment here. For you viewing pleasure, Klein has also created a video, a video mashup of sorts, for “Destroy the Dancefloor.” Set to the backdrop of the vampiric thriller The Lost Boys, Kline creates an audial thriller of his own, which you can download here free of charge.
