Panama City by Matthew Young
The artist: Young is a mysterious artist from New Zealand who, until recently, kept details of his identity (and his appearance) shrouded in secrecy.
He made a low-key debut at the end of last year, dropping some debut tracks onto SoundCloud and Facebook with little fanfare.
Since then, he’s been amassing a growing following thanks to a small profile featured on the website of American clothing retailer Urban Outfitters.
The vibe: 1980s synth meets relaxed new wave hip hop.
Listen to it when: You’re getting ready for a night out or need a playlist for drinks with friends.
Sounds like: Prince, Frank Ocean, The Weeknd
