Dawn Golden – Still Life

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , on June 5, 2014 by E.N.

Dawn Golden - Still LifeDawn Golden, a solo electronic production and songwriting project helmed by Dexter Tortoriello of Houses, officially started in late 2010 when a series of Bandcamp demos caught Diplo’s attention with their stark emotion and forward-­‐thinking production.

Post-­‐Blow, the Los Angeles-­‐based Tortoriello started recording albums for both Dawn Golden and Houses, releasing Houses’ A Quiet Darkness in May 2013. During this period, he continued working on the songs for what would become Dawn Golden’s debut LP. Entitled Still Life, the album was recorded over the last three years at the Mad Decent studios in Los Angeles.

Led by its first single “All I Want,” Still Life gains its stark emotional perspective through some of the most unique production you’re likely to hear this year. There’s heavy exploration of sonic texture, and Tortoriello uses frozen cut-­‐ups and creative vocal editing to flip a traditionally-­‐futuristic sound into something that oozes feeling.

Track List:

1. Discoloration
2. All I Want
3. Sleight Orchestra
4. I Won’t Bend
5. Swing
6. The Beekeeper
7. Still Life
8. Chevrotain
9. Last Train
10. Brief Encounter

About

Slick Shoota is a producer from Trondheim, Norway who has developed his own unique musical style—a combination of juke, garage, booty bass, breaks, and old school jungle. He’s already been getting attention for his remix work, covering a diverse range of artists and labels: Fuzzy Logik (Safe & Sound), Dev79 (Slit Jockey), Heartbreak (Mad Decent), Mr. Mitch (Butterz), Joss Ryan (DVA Music), Falty DL (Planet Mu), and more.

His first EP for Loose Squares contains five tracks of forward-thinking, boundary-pushing juke hybrids—from booty-meets-grime party-smashers like “Eye Turn Red” and “Hit The Flow” (featuring up-and-comer5kin&bone5), to the soulful, garage-inspired “Love You You You” and “Beby”. We here at Loose Squares are really excited to present these new sounds. A must have for 2012!
