Arthur Younger

UK, Perfect Havoc

27-year-old Michael Nash, aka Arthur Younger, born in West London is the newest producer, DJ to come forward into the future house and nu-disco scene!

Arthur started DJ’ing at the early age of 12 years old, using the old school original vinyls playing UK Garage, Jungle, bashment and Hip-Hop.

Influenced by the UKs most prestige original UK producer DJs such as DJ Hype, EZ, Sizzla and Wookie, Arthur uses these influences in his more recent future house and nu-disco sounds providing that perfect blend of future house!

At 17 years old Arthur was diagnosed with bone marrow failure and a blood disorder where he does not produce enough blood because his bone marrow isn’t able to, but the blood in his body that he does make, is also missing protein coatings on it. The blood disorder is called Paroxysmal Nocturnal Haemaglobinuria, it is an extremely rare and complicated disease. Arthur’s immune system doesn’t recognise the blood it does make and as a consequence his immune system attacks it and breaks the blood down, making him blood transfusion dependent, living on a cocktail of drugs, some of which are very toxic.

Arthur’s immune system is treated with extreme care due to the fact it cannot fight infections, this is because his bone marrow does not produce enough red blood cells and it also doesn’t produce enough white blood cells, neutrophils or platelets, all of which protect us from catching infections or bleeding out. Bacterial Meningitis, Septicemia and Acute Renal failure are to name a few of the illness’s that Arthur has fought and beaten over the years, as well as dealing with a tumor on his liver and enduring three embolization on his liver to stop it from getting worse.

Despite all of this throughout Arthur’s life, it has not stopped him from doing what he loves! From 2012 on-wards, Arthur has been DJ’ing for artists like Jagga and working with production teams such as TMS (Signed to Sony/ATV Publishing).

More recently he has finally got together his collection of works and been working on a number of remixes under his alias ‘Arthur Younger’. His remix of ZHU – Faded has over 1 million plays on YouTube on The Vibe Guide. Arthur has also received support 5x over from popular blog Indie Shuffle as well as Dancing Astronaut, Kick Kick Snare, Lipstick Disco, Mr Revillz, Beautiful Buzz and many more.

His plans for 2015 is to complete a series of new remix projects as well as original productions for his new fan base to hear and continue building his online presence.
