New Album: Wolfgang Gartner - Weekend in America
I can say with certainty, that one of my favorite times for dance music is the transition from the Summer to Fall, when artists, coming back from rigorous touring schedules and festivals, begin to release new music. Last month's big release for me was Nero's Welcome Reality, and last week Porter Robinson released his first EP, Spitfire. . Today, Austin, Texas based producer/DJ Joey Youngman (aka Wolfgang Gartner) has just released his first full-length album, Weekend in America. The album, available here, features 13 tracks, including the previously released hit singles "Space Junk," "Illmerica," & "Ménage a Trois." The ten remaining tracks do not disappoint, and run the gamut of Youngman's electro-house style. After collaborations with artists like Timberland, Mark Knight, & Deadmau5, Youngman was prominently featured on BBC Radio 1's Essential Mix last November, and since then has experienced a meteoric rise to fame, and this latest album is certain to cement his relevance in today's dance music scene. Enjoy!
