What's There

A 3 track house ep (16m 45s) — released November 21st 2011 on Pictures Music

****Repress alert! Excessive prices on Discogs and high demand have lead to a repress of Dauwd's debut 12" release What's There. With releases on Kompakt and Ghostly International as well as tour dates with Bonobo under his belt, now seems like an appropriate time to revisit this 2011 classic.****

Growing up in Wales, Dauwd played piano, guitar and drums whilst experimenting with electronic production. His productions are full and intricate with a wealth of sounds building warm atmospheres that are unusual within dance music. 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, â'¬Åmake a noise, make it my noise,then give it some rhythmâ'¬Â certainly seems to work for Dauwd. Quotes: â'¬Ålove it love it love itâ'¬Â Gilles Peterson â'¬Åa real talent ready to breakâ'¬Â Dummy Mag Dauwd â'¬Åmakes some of the most beautifully, carefully produced music we have heard in a long time.â'¬Â The Line Of Best Fit â'¬ÅEvoking the likes of Four Tet and Joy Orbison, Dauwd employs a host of unique synth tones for his soulful melodies, a thick bath of warbling ambiance for his otherworldly moods, and a tasteful bassline to groove along with his bouncing dance beat.â'¬Â XLR8R On Whats There: â'¬ÅGreat trackâ'¬Â Caribou Looking forward to playing this out!â'¬Â George FitzGerald â'¬Åthis track is absolutely gorgeous. so lush, wow!â'¬Â Nick Hoeppner, Ostgut Ton label manager and Berghain resident DJ
