In a similar vein to Kelela, Fatima and Wayne Snow, Washington DC singer and producer Dreamcast has an canny knack for traversing club and soul spheres with equal aplomb. While all the above share his velvet voice and shrewd eye for collaborators who have earned their stripes on the dance floor, Davon’s own prowess in the studio, and more recently in the booth, marks him out as a singular talent with serious promise.
Following tracks with Max D and Lord Tusk already under his belt in 2019, his next link us is with Vancouver producer ZDBT, also known for his work with 1800HaightStreet on Lobster Theremin. On Love EP is the result of back to back days in the studio when Dreamcast was invited to British Colombia for a live show Pacific Rhythm and marks the the inaugural release for Specials Worldwide. Unlike most Dreamcast tracks, Davon’s voice plays a more peripheral role on ‘Time For You’, bouncing off ZDBT’s echo-chamber arrangement to vaguely recall Photek’s treatment of Tracey Thorn on ‘Single’.
