Le Youth, Sultan + Shepard join forces for ‘Skipping Stones’ [Stream]
Le Youth recently synced up with Canadian duo Sultan + Shepard, who “drove thru hellish LA traffic to [his] studio last week,” to synthesize an ethereal new single. Released via This Never Happened, “Skipping Stones” consists of “mega summer vibes,” as described by Sultan + Shepard on Twitter. Le Youth’s recent string of releases has been impressively consistent, coming off a May 26 Anjunabeats offering, “Mirage,” and a Catie Turner remix that hit streaming platforms on May 7. “Skipping Stones” arrives on the heels of Sultan + Shepard’s sophomore album, Something, Everything, and precedes Le Youth’s nearly finished studio LP, which is evidently still nameless.
In a Facebook post, Le Youth labeled Sultan + Shepard as “two of the most talented artists in electronic music,” following up with, “just listen to their album if you don’t believe me.” The “C O O L” producer’s Canadian counterparts expressed like-minded sentiments via their track announcement, saying
“We did this whole song over email with barely any notes, just an intuitive understanding and trust that as we sent parts back and forth we would each add things that would make the song better. It’s no accident that we ended up as label mates on a place as special as @thisneverhappenedlabel and we’re pretty sure there will be more to come from us!”
“Skipping Stones” is now streaming everywhere.
