Dabin Releases Highly Anticipated Album ‘Wild Youth’

Dabin has officially released his long awaited second studio album, ‘Wild Youth’. Featuring a delightfully eclectic assortment of new tracks and collaborations, the sophomore effort is 10 tracks in length, with fan favorites, ‘Altitude’, ‘Lights’ and ‘In Flames’, joining 4 brand new cuts, and the recently released ‘Another Day’, ‘Alive’ and ‘Rings and Roses’. 

 The album is a testament to Dabin’s gifted studio abilities, sonically delivering a warming mix of melodic cuts, captivating drops and intelligent collaborations. Opening with the recently released ‘Another Day’ and ‘Rings & Roses’, listeners are greeted with the Claire Ridgely’s featured ‘Part-Time Lover’.

The pop leaning vocal sits atop a percussive heavy instrumental, sure to translate well across the live stage. ‘Youth (feat Yoe Mase)’ follows the Trove featured ‘Lights’, and immediately transports the listener to a state of awe via tantalizing guitar and indie elements. ‘Altitude’, a record with Parisian producer Fytch, known for his more sinister yet poignant sounds, perfectly complements the two contrasting production styles.

Hitting his stride, ‘In Flames’ featuring ECHOS singer songwriter Lexi Norton, is a quintessential Dabin production, dressed with soaring melodies and euphoric drops. ‘Home’ is the collaborative brainchild of Essenger, the Kansas City composer adds his dynamic touch, heavy synths and heartbreaking lyrics to a characteristically exhilarating Dabin track.

‘Bloom’ is a beautifully symphonic down-tempo roller coupled with sharply arranged synths, which are lifted by Dia Frampton’s alluring and all encompassing vocals. Similarly ‘Alive’ features the delicate and expressive vocals of RUNN, which are layered over a soft guitar intro as the track morphs into a powerful and formidable anthem.

Dabin’s aptitude to work collaboratively with an assembly of talented vocalists and producers is exhibited across ‘Wild Youth’. Impassioned and animated vocals feature across the 10 tracks, luring the listener in, before introducing Dabin’s signature synths, succinct snares and flawless drops.

Dabin spent much of 2018 on tour with melodic bass superstar ILLENIUM as part of his ‘Awake’ band and performed alongside him at memorable moments at Coachella, EDC & Shambhala. Now, Dabin is set to embark on ‘The Wild Youth Tour’ spanning North America throughout April – a well-deserved celebration and ode to the release of the new album.
