For the third release on Dawn till Dusk we feature two highly creative artists combining for something exceptional.
Jamie Stevens needs no introduction, and as one-third of the award-winning Australian act Infusion, he has crafted an envious portfolio. His solo work is a regular feature on imprints from Bedrock to microCastle, and his engineering excellence is all over the recent Balance presents Uone release. Joe Miller is an English-born, Australian-based musical alchemist whose podcasts are more works of art than DJ sets. His striking brand of progressive is catching the attention of an array of global melodic masters from Guy J to Nick Warren. Together, these two singular producers have collaborated in the past on All Day I Dream, and now they take centre stage on Dawn Till Dusk…
First single ‘Peninsula’ is a beautiful trek through vocal and sitar-sounding samples. The cosmic collection of melodic arrangements almost creates it’s own sense of call-and-response, evoking highly stimulating images of open seas and coastal drives.
‘Kapunda’ is gifted with a highly laidback temperament. Bell-like tones and percussive hits gently roll through the bars: Close your eyes and you could be taking a slow stroll through the sleepy Adelaide town it’s named after.
The 6 minute beauty of ‘Pluto’ is an ambient gem. A very celestial melody is saturated in the analogue tape hiss of Boards of Canada, building to a very exquisite crescendo which slowly fades out of existence – much like the ex-planet Pluto.
Fellow Australians Luke Sambe and Filter Bear combine for an smooth and exotic take on ‘Peninsula’ that demands repeated listens. Plucked instruments and percussive hits flow in out of your consciousness like a deep MDMA dream, one you wish you never wake up from.
