Audio Dope is a Swiss artist signed to Majestic Casual and Radicalis and he has been compared to acts such as Mura Masa and Caribou.

We here at Discobelle can premiere the first single “Floating” taken off his self-titled debut album, the track is crisp like a sun-filled winter’s day and features an acoustic foundation that shifts to spliced vocal fragments, weaving drums and beautifully layered synths for a breathtaking piece of electronica.

With Caribou’s highly anticipated release of Our Love right around the corner, we’ve been anxiously awaiting to hear who they’ve brought aboard for a remix treatment. Thankfully, they’ve chosen Tale of Us and Mano Le Tough, who join forces to create a cosmic take on the already stellar hit “Cant Do Without You”.

Twinkling bells and haunting synths rise and fall over a pulsing synthetic drum machine, building to a warm combination of dream pop and deep house. The end result keeps the emotional immediacy of the original while elevating it to a more energetic space.

Calling Dauwd’s music ambient feels wrong: ambient music sometimes skitters on terminally boring, and the latest release on Pictures Music doesn’t have any uneventful moments that will lull you to sleep – instead, it’s a cascade of action from the vibrating thrumming of the first note to the bass carried bubbly climax that makes your stomach feel like it’s lurching up and down when heard on a proper soundsystem. Reflective, smartly produced dance music for people who like the idea of a ‘future garage’ that’s not wallowing in mopey listlessness, it’s danceable firstly and reflective secondly.

Three hundred vinyl copies available at Bleep for those interested, and everyone from Dark Sky to Caribou seem to be buzzing about this one.

Whats There by Dauwd

So, this is the deal. Radiohead – one of the most iconic and creative groups of the last two decades recently released their album “The King Of Limbs” and now they put together a remix album which basically features a who’s who of modern British dance music producers.
