iTunes Review

Wanting to make his first two EPs available in one offering, Florida native Mike Diaz (who records as Millionyoung) has sewn together his 2009 self-released Sunndreamm and 2010’s Be So True, while throwing in extra songs from the same recording sessions and an untitled tour-only EP from 2010. The result is Amanecer. The opening song, “Chlorophyll,” taps into that avant-indie vein charted and explored by Ariel Pink. Through hazy low fidelity and endless waves of reverb, Diaz croons in boyish, nasal inflections over skittering beats and bubbling, effervescent, keyboard parts. The following “Hammock” turns up the bass and loops his vocals to create a jam that’s much better suited for the dance floor than a resting spot suspended between two trees. Diaz flirts with early-'90s house in “Week Ends,” but he distorts the bass and gives both the soulful keyboard parts and the rhythms a murky presence, making for something more artful than ephemeral. At nearly six and a half minutes, “Feel the Same” is the longest cut here. It boasts a moving, kinetic collage of wonky bass boogie, distant drum patterns, and beautifully overlapped singing parts.

It Rocks

Mike Diaz IS Millionyoung and you know what? It rocks.

oddly futuristic

This guy dominates the synth pop genre. Great music. Hope to hear more...

Millionyoung deserves so much more

Millionyoung and M83 are my two favorite bands at the moment. It seems like they both don't have a single bad song. I love this album.

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Florida native Mike Diaz goes by the name MillionYoung, and pools elements of Animal Collective, Toro y Moi, and New Order into his drowsy, circular soundscapes. Like fellow chillwavers, he sings wistfully over a blend of acoustic instruments and electronic programming, and uses a retro ‘80s palette of synth sounds. After the Be So True EP and Sunndreamm EP generated a buzz online...
