In our fifth record label profile, we’re getting to know Nadia Dahlawi and Sara Jade – the brains behind London-based label/club night Young and Lost Club.
In 2002, the girls met at the age of fifteen and formed a fanzine. In 2003, they launched their first club night. By the end of 2004, the Young and Lost Club kicked off with a launch party in Soho. This summer marks their project’s five-year anniversary. To celebrate, Nadia and Sara are releasing a thirty two-track compilation of their greatest hits. The ‘Young and Lost Club Compilation’ will be released on August 16th.

Magic Wands – ‘Teenage Love’
Here’s a track from Nashville duo Magic Wands, off their 2009 EP ‘Magic, Love and Dreams’. It was first released on Valentine’s Day 2008, but worth a download today if you missed it.
Loverman – ‘Miracle’
Loverman, a four-piece band from London, released ‘Miracle’ (from EP ‘Human Nature’) through the Young and Lost Digital Club in 2009. They’re influenced by Nirvana, The Melvins and the hardcore punk scene, and they love being compared to Nick Cave. They also describe their sound as “Beetlejuice claw-hammering The Cramps to death in a burning church”.
Oh Minnows – ‘Everyday’
Written while traveling across the USA and UK, Chris Steele Nicholson’s band’s EP, ‘Might’, was released in June 2009. And in this mixtape, you can download his soothing new track, ‘Everyday’.
Golden Silvers – ‘Fade To Black’
Another track from Golden Silvers, this one’s from their debut 2009 album, ‘True Romance’. If you want more from them, head on over to their Myspace for another free download of ‘Inside Out’.
Noah And The Whale – ‘Last DJ’ (Tom Petty cover)
Noah and the Whale have a new album due out in March 2011, but for now, enjoy this cover of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers’ 2002 release, which was believed to be a lyrical attack on the music industry. They’ll be performing at the Young and Lost Club’s 5th Anniversary Party on September 1st at Village Underground – you can find more information here.
