Only Magic Left is Art In 1999, I remember listening to Moby's track "Porcelain", getting chills and thinking to myself that I wish all of his music sounded this good. 15 Years later a talented musician named YUS must have been thinking the same thing. Except he did something about it. His track "Nowadays" is the quintessential Electronica dream pop track that Moby never perfected. While Moby peaked with that track, Yus has debuted with a track far superior than anything in Moby's body of work. Favorite track: Nowadays (Remastered).

It was created between Winter 2010/2011 and Spring 2014 at home, and mastered by Dietrich Schoenemann in NY.

Track Name: Superbeats
It's starting up,
making ground and
closing up.

The beat is rough,
kept apart yet
close enough.

Don't worry much,
if it feels strange
when you touch
my heart.
Track Name: Nowadays (Remastered)
How can you know
what you want for sure?

I study you,
study to,
keep you close.

But,
nowadays,
I don't keep my hopes as high,
nowadays,
as I used to.

Nowadays,
I don't look too far into.
Nowadays,
I just want you.
Track Name: 20 Million
Hey you,
you don't seem as loud
as the rest of the crowd.

Don't you
find it kinda lame
that I don't know your name yet?

And most of the words are just floating around,
but the feeling is such that I must make a sound.

and all the time I spend with you it all goes to waste now,
and whenever I'm with you I just want a taste of.

Pouring out my soul again,
the sound of twenty million men.
The way that I believe in makes
me bound to do the same mistakes.
Track Name: Time Alone
Keeps on going.
Keep on going.

All this time alone is spent weighing
all my choices,
but lately I can't see how,
had I kept it up,
I would be now.
Track Name: Vees and Exes
What do you have to say?
Why do you have to say
what you have to say?

What you wanted,
do you still want it?

And what you want
is just what you won't.
Track Name: The Way
I don't have much to say
about why I spend my day
the way that I spend my day.

It's just what I'm doing.
Track Name: Ends Meet
Call me your majesty.
Track Name: Zzz
I can sing my
way to
a place that
I belong.
Track Name: Movenpick
Truth be told
I only hold in
greater hoping for
good and honest
future promise
often needing more,
but lest you know
just what it's for
you best not risk your soul.

Look in me,
those are the things I see:
- your need for simplicity
- the man that I want to be
- the world that I want for we
- the one for me
Are you the one for me?
The one to bring another set of colors to my palette?
The one to clear up all the bad ideas that I had thought up?
The one that I can spend today with without thinking of tomorrow, without thinking about anything at all?

As of now I do not know,
it's just a feeling it could very well be so.
Track Name: Now
It used to be a mystery,
it used to be a secret,
but now I know.

It used to be a part of me
and I had doubts about it,
but now i'm sure.

I don't need you
to help me out
anymore.
