Claude Young [ Surface, !K7, 7th City, Frictional Records ]
Electronic composer, web designer, videographer, sci-fi junkie, apple computer expert & world class DJ, these are but a few of the hats worn by the anomaly that is Claude Young Jr. This Detroit native who now resides in Tokyo (Japan) was born the son of legendary WJLB (Detroit) radio personality, station founding member and production wizard Claude Young Sr.
After early interest in television production and some experience working as an intern (and later mix show DJ) for several radio programs in the early 90's, CYJ intensified his interest in what he refers to as the art of the DJ. Coached by close friend and mentor Anthony "Shake" Shakir he became a natural almost literally overnight.
His editing & production skills in studio (taught to him by his father & years of experimentation alone) saw him work on a string of records for both independent and major record labels. Musto & Bones, Technasia, Gary Numan, Carl Craig, Joey Beltram, Inner City and 4Hero are but a few of the artist either remixed or edited by Young.
He was also cofounder of two of Detroit electronic music's most respected record imprints: Frictional Records (with Anthony "Shake" Shakir) and 7th City Records (with Dan "DBX" Bell).
For those that were in Detroit for Movement 2011, you know why this man's coming to town. Please help us give him a warm Honey welcome.
