  • Quiet Dawn – “The First Day” (Release) | @QuietDawnMusic

    Press play on the debut album for French producer Quiet Dawn, which is a 12-track project titled The First Day with multiple features. Throughout listening to the project, you will be taken through a handful of emotions. You will hear features from Oddisee, Miles Bonny, Theory Hazit, Sarah Gessler, Barrio, Majnun, and a couple remixes from both Ohmega Watts and Lil’ Dave. Read a bit more below, and you can head to Bandcamp to either purchase the digital album or vinyl.

    ‘The First Day’ is the debut album from French producer Will Galland, aka Quiet Dawn. Since signing to First Word in 2014, Quiet Dawn has released two singles, ‘New Dawn’ featuring Oddisee (featuring a remix from Eric Lau) and the more recent ‘Golden Moments’ featuring Sarah Gessler. These served as the perfect introduction to QD’s style, with jazz, hip-hop and broken beat influences combined to create something that is very much his own sound.

    ‘The First Day’ is a concept album of sorts, a human journey based on one day – specifically the first day in search of love. This takes in many forms; peaceful familial love (Aurora, Hold Them Close), introspective love (The Trap, Golden Moments) and of course romantic love (Dusk, After Sex). Each track is linked to a specific time of day, taking the listener on a personal trip through time.

    The album highlights Quiet Dawn’s musical philosophy – particularly his desire to share the limelight with fellow musicians and artists. An introverted character as a person, his extroverted side comes out in his musical life. Consequently the album is dotted with collaborations. Miles Bonny, Oddisee, Theory Hazit, Sarah Gessler, Dandy Teru, Barrio and Majnun all add their talents to the album, with QD effortlessly blending their disparate skills with ease.

  • Alexander Lewis – “7 Day EP” (Release) | @_AlexanderLewis

    How interesting. Here’s yet another 7 Day EP release, but this one is from the talented Alexander Lewis. The project shares seven days worth of emotions and beat ranges, as there is a heavy brass moving track, followed by a rainy day beat, a slew of other moving tracks, and it closes with probably my favorite vibe-filled track in “Jane”. Either way, get your listen on below.

  • Braeden Bailey – “Seven.” (Release) | @BraedenBailey0

    Check out this new dope production piece from Dallas’ Braeden Bailey, which is properly titled Seven. Braeden worked on this project and decided to make a beat a day for an entire week to get himself out of a beat block, and what you hear below is the result. You can cop this for only three bucks over at Bandcamp.

    I needed to defeat a month of beat block, so I publicly committed myself to making a beat everyday for a week. This is what happened! It was challenging and yet very rewarding. I’m searching to find a new sound, but this is a nice buffer beforehand.
