At the top of the month, Booth readers got their first taste of Jaymes Young‘s electro-pop stylings via an unofficial, SmarterChild-produced remix of Dark Star, featuring guest bars from Los Angeles buzzmaker Jez Dior. Three weeks later, the buzzmaking artist/producer returns to make his solo Booth debut with Moondust, a standout cut off his soon-to-be-released digital album. Here, Young’s own moody synth arrangement sets the stage for bittersweet verses dedicated to a woman whose love he’s made the painful choice to forego. Now that you’ve been properly introduced, are you craving more from Jaymes Young? Then be sure to cop Dark Star (the LP) tomorrow, when it hits the ‘net for free digital download.
