‘Heavy Crown’ is the first official release from Manchester artist Y.O.U (Your Own Universe), out soon on Tigersushi.
Elliott Williams aka Y.O.U, was brought to the attention of Parisian tastemaker and Tigersushi founder; Joakim Bouaziz, who immediately invited him over to his Paris studios to record a few tracks that would form the basis of Y.O.U’s forthcoming album out later this year. Both artists bonded over a love of hardware synths and 80s New Wave pop records. It was deemed a logical succession of events for Y.O.U’s first outing to be released on the cult label.
The track is a mix of 80s synth pop, nu disco, and house, with a nod to the legendary ‘French Touch’. This eclectic, forward thinking approach has placed Y.O.U in an esteemed class of artists, with Elliot’s ethos mirroring that of Tigersushi’s varied roster.
The release has even attracted attention from Junior Boys’ Jeremy Greenspan, who has remixed ‘Heavy Crown’
