Dauwd [Psssh Records 002 Test Pressing]

Scheduled for release on July 30th, 2k21 on his very own Psssh Records imprint is Dauwd's second, once again untitled, 12" instalment on the label. Whilst "La Nota" on the A-side sees the man Dauwd Al Hilali presenting a deep, swinging fusion of laid back UK Garage / 2Step infused with echoes of BrokenHouse, ethereal vocal snippets as well as a stripped down, super minimal motif that evokes memories of the earliest - a.k.a. late 90s - releases on labels like Dessous Recordings, "Steve" on the flipside is on a dry, aggressively pumping uptempo House tip whilst throwing beautiful DeepHouse pads, a looped, slightly muffled vocal sample and distinct, bleepy and futuristic synths into the mix for early morning / super late night workout sets whereas JD Twitch's rework of "La Nota" to be found on B2 weighs in complex, poly-layered and surely Industrial-infused Breakbeat arrangements and dark'ish, twisted atmospheres challenging even the most experienced Dark Garage / Sublow / South London Bass spinning DJs out there. Check.
