Dauwd's debut release on Pictures Music is a fine piece of electronica, masterfully representing sounds from the post-dubstep / future-garage melting pot. Shimmering synths and keys reside alongside a tainted vocal sample on 'Could It Be', the more dancefloor orientated of the two tracks. 'Shimmer' sits on more of a rolling house template and employs gliding soundscapes and vinyl crackle to create a really rich atmosphere. This is definitely for fans of acts such as Mount Kimbie, a truly inventive use of organic sounds in an electronic sphere. Hailing from Liverpool, Dauwd is certainly one to watch.
