Young Male is a techno project begun in 2008 by Quinn Taylor, a producer and dj based in Brooklyn, New York. He is the co-founder of the New York crew/record label White Material, a group of techno, house and noise musicians. His live performances utilise a Roland TR909 drum machine, mixer, guitar fx pedals, and eerie sound textures. His first record was self-released in August of 2012 on White Material Records.
He displays more commonality with the sleek productions of Function and his Sandwell District associates than anything to have been inspired by America’s contemporary noise techno artists, pitched somewhere right between classic Detroit minimalism and the more forceful techno which was prominent in New York in the early 90s.
