Youngsie sounds like a back-in-the-day jungle deejay or MC. A proper nuum name.

But it's actually Wire-beloved avant musician Richard Youngs, who's become infatuated with manic breakbeat edits and is combining that with what he usually does

Release rationale for the first in this direction,"Ha Hey": 

Two months away from instruments and microphones. Two months with just a laptop. I had a jungle epiphany. The world of sound was wild again. So many possibilities. Discovering the joys of sample packs and raiding my own multi-tracks. How had I never known about tracker software?

This came together over a weekend. On the Monday I sent it to Sappo for that little extra. Red-hot master, everything through the rack, pushing decibels. Tuesday, act fast. Here it is.

Quite exciting, if too frenetic and chopped to get anyone to wind-their-waist (definitely more Third Eye Foundation or Shitmat than, say, Levicitus "The Burial").

Bonus points for putting "V.I.P." in a couple of titles. 

Rather different from what he's known for
