    Call it chillwave, glo-fi, gltch or bedroom, but it's clear this sub-genre of electronic music is not going anywhere. Florida's MillionYoung, aka Mike Diaz, kicks of 2011 with the latest addition to the canon, his new record, Replicants. With two well-received EP's under his belt, including last years excellent and much more song-focused Be So True, this is Diaz's first swing at a full-length.
