Dashiell is a Melbourne born and raised DJ & Producer and a member of production group Menage alongside Sam Brickel, who released a track on Kia’s Animalia imprint back in June 2020. Dashiell is a devotee to glitch & minimal musical styles, which shine through in his ‘Going Nowhere Fast’ EP on Melbourne label Felt Sense Records. The EP features a collection of tracks recorded over several years in some of Dash’s ever-evolving bootleg studio setups like laundry spaces, and leaky tin sheds.
The EP opener ‘Aspect’ sees Dashiell invite Steeplejack artist Sam Brickell to feature. The track offers fluttering grooves, hypnotic pads and spacey, humming low frequencies before ‘Going Nowhere Fast’ lays down breaky rhythms, tripped-out fx and twinkling synths underneath. Up next, ‘Oxy’ takes things into minimal territories as the shimmering bassline fuse delicately with moody textures and dubbed-out vibrations whilst ‘Scratching The Surface’ features ambient atmospheres, breezy soundscapes and glistening melodies.
To finish, Berlin-based Australian producer and Co-Founder of the Salt Mines label rolls out a loopy remix of ‘Going Nowhere Fast’ as he blends trippy electronics and murky tonality.
