The Young Lovers

Young Lovers

Loungin Recordings

Released: 20th April 2009 | 12 track house single
The Young Lovers heralds a new album from one of the UK's most in demand producers, one Joshua 'Herve' Harvey. Taking us into a more downtempo and chilled space from his peak time dancefloor productions and remixes, 'The Young Lovers' further cements Joshua Harvey's reputation as one of the most accomplished electronic composers around. From deep and immersive sounds to shimmering cascades of warmth and beauty, The Young Lovers could well be the soundtrack to a sun-drenched, romantic holiday. 29 year old producer Joshua 'Herve' Harvey is a man of many names. You may know him as one half of The Count and Sinden duo and their world beating 'Beeper' EP on Domino Records. Or perhaps you know him from one of his many aliases, like ActionMan, Dead Soul Brothers, VoodooChilli or his supergroup Machines Don't Care. You may also know him as a remixer nonpareil, re-jigging everyone from Bloc Party, LilyAllen and The Chemical Brothers through to Mark Ronson, Calvin Harris and The Prodigy. But it is this freewheeling, all encompassing ethos that has made him one of the most exciting things to happen to dancefloors in some time – his music is joyous, wide-ranging, multicultural and quite simply damn good fun. Now we find Joshua in a more reflective mood that takes us into a mature and understated realm. As 'The Young Lovers' he creates a musical palette, whose subtlety and dexterity could colour the whimsical ponderings of Keats or the romantic meanderings of William Wordsworth. This time his instruments cajole a lush musical backdrop full of warmth and light, drawing from a wealth of styles that paint the picture of a swooning lovers eloping to sunnier climes. From the opening jazz swing inflected 'You Make Me Dizzy' to the heartbreaking, melancholic strings of 'How Lonely Does it Get?' and the dusk blues pace of 'Free' and the broken beat shuffle of 'She's A Phoenix', he manages to capture the dusty, smoke filled ambience of a bygone jazz club and then thrust it into the blinding sunshine of a latino samba band warming up in the tropical heat. Cementing elements of blues, jazz, latin and downtempo grooves into his electronic cauldron, Hervé conjures up a heady mix of cool summer listening vibes and introspective ambience to create an album of sunshine filled romanticism. As 'The Young Lovers' steal themselves away to Paris, Rome or Barcelona this album is the document to their lovelorn tryst. Currently Herve is working on The Count & Sinden album for Domino Records, the Hervé album, and has just released his debut mix CD entitled 'Ghetto Bass' whilst his second Machines Don't Care project album, which also features Toddla T, Trevor Loveys, Sinden, Fake Blood, Drop The Lime, Detboi and Affie Yousef is due early 2010. In the meantime, take a romantic break with The Young Lovers.
