Stream Dauwd's 'Kindlinn' EP for Kompakt
- Words: James Eaton
The follow up to London-based DJ/producer Dauwd's excellent Heat Division EP from last year, Kindlinn dropped this week via Kompakt, and is now available to stream in its entirety. We've already heard two of the record's three productions—the tech-y, soft-focus house of "Lydia" and the heavily atmospheric closing track "Rain Raker"—so the only fresh tune for those keeping tabs on this release will be its title track.
The longest of the three tunes, "Kindlinn" sets its sights on the dancefloor from the onset, working out a simple and stomping beat for Dauwd to weave his funky synthlines around. The UK artist eventually introduces a bit of his beloved ambient pads to the mix, but still keeps things sharp and focused with biting piano chords and subtle bits of percussion. All of the just-released Kindlinn EP can be heard in the player below.
