The Sound of Young New York
"The Sound of Young New York represents a time and place in New York's vibrant music scene. Compiled and mixed by Dominique Keegan, owner of Plant Music and Plant Bar, The Sound of Young New York attempts to compile music from a variety of New York producers and artists that have surfaced over the past year. The ever so publicized DFA production duo of James Murphy & Tim Goldsworthy can be found in their remixes of Metro Area's 'Orange Alert' and Radio 4's 'Dance To The Underground'. DFA label favorites The Rapture are featured on a rework of <> 'Music Kills Me'. Much of the sound being represented comes from the mix of indie kids being exposed to dance music in Plant Bar and at Plant parties, such as Plant's three year residency at New York's Centro-Fly. All of these crews have solid New York followings that have defined underground New York nightlife in Williamsburg and Downtown Manhattan."
