Line-up /Dauwd, Chrome Sparks, Braille
We are oh so excited to bring you this show on March 7th with UK's own Dauwd, who will be playing his house-infused electronica in support of his new EP, Heat Division, dropping March 11th.
Dauwd creates music with a complexity most contemporary producers shy away from. Found sounds are thickly laden over multi-timbred synths, vocal and instrumental stabs punctuate organic and evolving passages guided always by driving percussion and immaculate bass production. The method, “make a noise, make it my noise,then give it some rhythm” certainly seems to work for Dauwd.
“I have collected quite a large archive of sound, from sampling, recording and rummaging through the net. Mostly the samples I use are fairly random, I will audition all kinds of things; if it sounds right it stays, otherwise it goes.”
After a year DJing at some of Europe's best clubs and festivals, Dauwd returns this autumn with a four track co-released by Ghostly International and Pictures Music (UK). His sound, leaning now further towards house and techno, incorporates elements of soundscape and showcases and obsessive attention to detail within his production world.
Jeremy Malvin grew up in pittsburgh then moved to Ann Arbor to study percussion. Now he just chills and makes beats in Ann Arbor when he isn't playing drums for stepdad.
Braille is better known as Praveen, who forms Sepalcure together with Machinedrum. He uses this new alias for his house orientated output, mixing influences from Chicago, Detroit and the UK effortlessly. His debut release on Rush Hour, "The Year 3000", ships April 25th.
