Born a Loser


Artist: MYD
Label: Ed Banger / Because Music
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 30 April 2021

MYD, the irreverent French DJ, musician and producer, releases his debut album Born A Loser via Ed Banger / Because Music. The album comprises 14 tracks (52 min, 04 sec) including previous single ‘Moving Men’ featuring Mac DeMarco and new single ‘Born A Loser’...

Born in Lille, Myd has been involved in making music for over ten years, firstly as a founding member of the collective Club Cheval, where he helped produce and remix for artists including Kanye West, Dua Lipa, Theophilus London, Brodinski and others. On Born a Loser Myd strides out on his own - showcasing his eccentric flair with this coming-of-age record and a soundtrack to life's strange delights.

His production skills come to the fore and at times this sounds like a remixed album of the work of a collective. That's a pretty impressive feat to accomplish, especially on a debut album.

It's catchy, warm and inviting. You'll find it hard to resist MYD's skills to draw you in and keep you rivetted to the music as it unfolds.

A rich, rewarding dance album that just keeps getting better the more times you revisit it.
