After a couple of releases for Ghostly and remixes for Kompakt, London-based producer Dauwd, has just released his first EP for the Cologne-based dance music titan.
The “Kindlinn“EP sees the newcomer making a rather compelling shift from the UK sound he’s originally become known for and reinventing himself as a virtuoso of propelling house and romantic techno.
The title cut “Kindlinn” is a stunner that brilliantly echoes Matthew Dear’s groove, but has a unique charm that is all Dauwd.
What starts as a noodly jam on the legendary Linn Drum machine builds and builds into a full on warehouse floor chugger.
Finding just the balance between analogue warmth and ice cold machine funk, Dauwd has sorted it out.
This is exciting work and hopefully a harbinger of what’s to come.
