Young American Primitive (real name Greg Scanavino) is an American producer from the early 90s house scene. This 1992 12″ on the ZoëMagik label includes three groundbreaking tracks, the melodic downtempo ‘Over and Out’, ‘Young American Primitive’, and ‘These Waves’ (notable for its appearance on the Digweed & Sasha seminal Northern Exposure mix).
The first half of the six minute track features enough builds, samples (from the film ‘Flight To Mars‘) and synth stabs to secure the listener’s interest before progressing with the main theme of the track. The final voice sampling is Dennis Hopper from the film Apocalypse Now.
At almost thirty years old, this track stands as a fine example of what could be produced using very early digital production tools.
