Bio

Eric Young, born November 13, 1976, in Jacksonville, Illinois, USA.
Encouraged to have a wide variety of musical taste from a young age, Eric Young began collecting influences and records from age 6 years old.

Growing up in the Midwestern United States, Eric had plenty of time to focus on musical studies. Beginning trumpet at age 9, Eric continued with private lessons and participation in both school and extracurricular bands throughout elementary, middle, and high school. Graduating in 1995, he gave up playing trumpet to focus on learning to play tribal hand drums and singing. During this time, Eric was introduced to the electronic music scene and illegal warehouse parties in St. Louis. After relocating to Champaign-Urbana, Illinois in 1998, he began DJing bleepy acid house and IDM at house parties and local clubs, eventually going on to host and DJ two separate radio shows on stations 90.1 WEFT and 104.5 WRFU. Going on to music production and studio engineering was a natural progression and became Eric’s primary focus from then on.

Since 2001, Eric Young has released 9 albums through independent channels, featuring other talented artists collaborating on many of the projects. In addition to that, he is DJing, producing, mixing, and mastering for independent artists and labels worldwide. He is currently living in Des Moines, Iowa, and working on a new release as well as putting out quality DJ mixes regularly.
