Your City Sleeps / Bio

From a young age, Miles developed a great fondness for motion pictures and their soundtracks. Paying close attention to the likes of Vangelis and Tangerine Dream. Born in Seattle, he spent his childhood in the suburb of Edmonds, and became involved in the Seattle Underground Party scene in the Early 2000's. Miles started mixing vinyl under the handle "Program" around 2003, primarily spinning hard house. He soon moved on to Drum n Bass, spending a lot of time digging and listening at Capitol Hill’s Platinum Records, which was then a hot spot for many influential Seattle Dj’s. In the search for new vinyl and internet music, he became heavily inspired by the Warp Records artist catalogue, among other notorious ambient producers.

Combining his newfound appreciation of Ambient Soundscapes and his lifelong love of dance music, he released his first Self-Titled EP in 2009, followed by "The Illustrator," a full-length released in 2010. In hopes to expose Seattle locals to some of the amazing un-signed artists from the area, Miles helped create "Sounds From The Sound," a monthly podcast showcasing local electronic artists. With a few live performances under his belt, along with some positive reviews from local Seattle Paper "The Stranger," Miles had finally began to define himself as an artist. He started playing at more venues, including The High Dive, The Crocodile and KREMWERK.

Along the way, Your City Sleeps has released multiple Full-Lengths and EP's of varying genres and production styles. His growing catalogue and performance frequency allotted him many new contacts and collaborators. Various Remixes and Collaborative tracks were soon added to YCS’ bag of tricks. In 2014 Miles was asked by the Seattle Goth/Dreampop outfit "Golden Gardens" to perform with them at The Bumbershoot Festival. He soon became a static member of the group, performing with them around Seattle and Portland into early 2015.

Your City Sleeps is currently working in the studio on his upcoming double album.
