Mainly known for his promotional work within the electronic music scene, Tony Young aka: Autoclav1.1 turned his hand to writing music late 2004. Since then he has had numerous successes including two EP’s, two albums ‘You are my all and more‘ [Crunchpod] and ‘Visitor Attractions’ [Hive], and 2007 a remix album ‘Broken Beats for Broken Hearts‘ [Hive], all of which have cemented Autoclav1.1 as one of the more prolific artists on the scene. Fusing huge orchestral compositions and IDM with flashes of Industrial and modern Electronica, Autoclav1.1 is quickly gaining a reputation for pulling on the deepest of human emotions with a variety of melody frequently torn apart by paranoid beatwork and broken rhythmical structures.
On ‘Love no Longer Lives Here‘, his third studio album and first for rising US label Tympanik Audio in 2008, Young changes the goal posts once more and treads some new waters without forgetting his past. More emphasis has been placed on heart rendering piano sections and soul capturing melodies. The introduction of more organic instruments are thrown into the mix with a splash of guitars and a nod to other musical genres which add an altogether new dimension, displaying a maturity and growth that we have come to expect with each Autoclav1.1 release. The album includes a couple of guest appearances from Jamie of ESA and Dave from Cradle of Filth, and highlights Autoclav1.1’s diversity and willingness to work within different musical scopes.
2009 saw Autoclav1.1’s album ‘Where Once Were Exit Wounds‘ released with stunning artwork by Salt (Ant-Zen / Hymen) and stellar audio mastering by Metarc.
Coming this November 2010 is the brand new Autoclav1.1 album ‘All Standing Room In The Goodnight Saloon‘ which will feature guest appearances by Leaether Strip, Xotox, Attrition, Experiment Haywire, Millipede, and Riotmilloo. Watch for it right here, only from Tympanik Audio.
