The First Word French invasion continues! Will Galland aka Quiet Dawn is the newest signing to our label, joining fellow Gallic producers Souleance on our ever-expanding roster. The Parisian producer has grown from his hip hop roots (including an EP on Feelin' Music as part of Beat Consortium) adding broken beat and house to his soulful musical palate. His debut album 'The First Day' will be released on FW in early 2015 - until then we have the first single 'New Dawn' featuring the incomparable Oddisee on vocal duties.
Over a lilting hip hop beat with sloping bass and shuffling percussion Oddisee drops trademark thoughtful lyricism in his inimitably languid style. The 7" vinyl release features a remix from in-demand producer Eric Lau, who adds heavy drums and an addictive hook to the original. Available as a limited edition 7" this is just the beginning for Quiet Dawn.
Much love & thanks for your support!
