Little is known about Youan, as he’s part of a growing number of artists who prefer to stay shrouded behind the luxury of anonymity that comes with releasing music solely through the Internet. I’m sure we’ll learn more about the mystery man as time passes, but for now we’ll let the art speak for itself. What I’ve learned so far is that the man makes some perfectly mellow music to vibe out to as the evening winds down. On his newest track, “Must Be Love,” he delivers some very Sampha-esque vocals over a sample of “Over My Dead Body,” that swirls together creating a sort of soothing hybrid between SBTRKT & Drake.

Below, stream “Must Be Love” as well as Youan’s previous single, “Know Your Name,” another calm, atmospheric track ideal for the final hours of the night.  Make sure to check out Youan’s SoundCloud page, and look out for his seven-track mixtape, set to drop before the end of August.
