Day 18 of our charity Advent Calendar in aid of Help Musicians.
The latest contribution to our charity Advent Calendars is a sample ridden, feel-good, slow burning house track in true Damiano von Erckert fashion. The ava. Records boss has kindly offered up his unreleased track ‘All These Shows’ to coincide with his birthday, an act that’s becoming something of a theme now, after he did the same for last year’s Calendar, on the same day.
Although it’s an unusual practice to give others gifts on your own birthday, we’re not ones to complain. The track consists of nostalgic summery hip-hop samples, with well-sourced riffs and cut up lyrics. What draws all the components together, however, is the undulating soulful bassline and the subsequent ceaseless hi-hat hits. Overall, it’s an intricate and dynamic soundbite implemented through his discernible jazz and soul influences.
We asked Damiano to tell us a bit about the track and he kept it short and sweet: “It’s just about love, peace and harmony!”
