He is the bass player in Killing Joke, one of the original members of The Orb, he produced The Verve “Bitter Sweet Symphony”, Sir Paul McCartney, Pink Floyd… the list is actually huge. I can’t list them all.
Youth gained global recognition and was given a lifetime achievement award as a producer in music. He’s the guy who opened the doors of his own home to a bunch of ridiculously talented hippies and let a music festival of its own kind take place in the mountains of Spain…and we all loved it. It really is unique. The third one just recently took place in October 2019. Space Mountain Cosmic Arts Lab. Teaming up with a pretty amazing group of people to work on the first Space Mountain Festival was an experience for all of us. It is always an eclectic gathering and long may it remain that way.
I had the pleasure of working with Youth & Gaudi filming their music video “Bass Weapon” from their album “Astronaut Alchemists”. It was a lot of fun, and a great track. Two guys, space suits and a vintage VW campervan! They rocked it. We finished up that sunny afternoon at Gregory Sams Summer party, space suits and all giving him a bit of a surprise!
Today is Youth’s Birthday so… Happy Birthday!
As we all celebrate these last few days of 2019, to everyone who is reading this wherever you are may you have a healthy and happy 2020 ahead of you.
