Diggin’ This: Julien Dyne – “Design” (Soundway Records)
The groove is real.
On “Design,” Berlin-via-Wellington-via-Auckland-via-Montreal musician, drummer, DJ, and visual artist Julien Dyne opens with a gritty, Theo Parrish-ish beat loop and shimmering piano punctuation before melting it all into a grooving bass and drum shuffle strut that awaits a delightful Fat Freddy-ish horn riff, courtesy of actual Fat Freddy’s Drop trumpeter Toby Laing.
Track of the day.
