Urbandawn Sleeping Awake EP Hospital Records
Straight outta’ São Paulo, the funkmeister and production paragon Urbandawn has delivered a D+B quartet that’s ready to drop jaws and start wars. The ‘Sleeping Awake’ EP sees everything we’ve grown to love about this Brazilian badman, soaked in musical brilliance with raw power and funk. No messing around, ‘Roundabout’ likens to a bear punch in the face with a knuckle duster. This monolith stepper’s incredibly complex production will leave heads rolling across the globe. All producers take note, the devil's in the detail. The rampantly jazzy weapon ‘Sleeping Awake’ is as if LTJ Bukem, London Elektricity and Noisia got shoved into the Hadron Collider - playful with funk and exuding nothing but sheer brilliance. Rolling straight through is ‘White Canvas’, a crispy sub-shaker that draws upon the full 360 of the D+B spectrum. This techy masterpiece is poised for the dancefloor with energy levels high and quality levels higher. Seeing things home is ‘Gloria’ with a harmonious fusion of exquisite chords and empyreal vocals. A rich progression slowly fades out to see out this compendium of excellence. You catch Urbandawn on his UK/EU tour this summer jet-setting around for Hospitality On The Beach, We Are Electric and Let It Roll amongst other shows from Estonia to Austria and beyond! On top of hot-stepping across continents, his music has previously gathered international radio support from the likes of MistaJam, Rene LaVice, Noisia and more!
Released 3rd August 2018 on Hospital Records.
