Young Corner is something of a welcome return from Swiss producer Alex "Lexx" Storer, a producer whose grasp of atmosphere and emotion is matched by a keen ear for what works on the dancefloor. A-side "Turning Tides" is particularly good, delivering a typically Balearic fusion of shuffling, deep house rhythms, and tactile synth bass, sun-kissed textures and gloriously rich, disco-influenced guitars. It feels like the sort of track that would lead to "moments" when dropped at the right time. "Mahogany" is slower, with bolder electronics and crispier guitars joining a thick, dub-influenced bassline. Finally, "Serenity" pushes the Balearic dial to max via dreamy chords, clipped guitars and cascading electronics.
