Florida’s Million Young aka, Mike Diaz is surfing the wave of Chaz Bundwick and Ernest Green—you know them better as Toro y Moi and Washed Out, so of course it’s a chillwave.
Perhaps Diaz’s wave is a couple of years behind the rest of the chillwavers, but he’s good at what he does, plus, he’s got what the other’s don’t—he’s a musical soothsayer…
Back in 2009 Diaz was talking about what bands he was currently listening to and made the prediction about Beach House, “2010 hasn’t even started yet, but judging from the bits I’ve heard of Teen Dream, I can tell these guys already have a serious album of the year contender by anyone’s standards.” If the music thing doesn’t work out (MizMuze predicts it will) perhaps he can make it as a fortune-teller.
Million Young’s EP, Be So True was released on 1/26/10.
