Premiere: Austin Ato – Morning

A seasoned producer under aliases like Drums of Death, Frankie Dreams and The Slumberjacks for nearly a decade, Colin Bailey’s focus since 2016 has been as Austin Ato. It centres on a classic house sound utilising live instruments and percussion, on full display for his Futurboogie EP earlier this year. Next up is Song For Mr Lewis,¬†recruited by Phonica for their White series.

On ‘Morning’ a dubbed out drum machine and bass loop combined with some raspy male vocals harks to OG Mike Dunn, but just as the steady momentum takes things deeper, a beautiful keys melody break the descent, piercing through the mist with grace and beauty.

Song For Mr Lewis EP is out 1st Dec on vinyl and 7th Dec on digital – buy from Phonica.
