“Hailing out of Rock Hill, 23-year-old D’Amontae Breland recently released his first EP, Angst. The atmospheric soul and funk grooves gliding down the approximately 15-minute album are cohesive and spread like butter on a warm slice of bread. The album is both futuristic and nostalgic at the same time. Recorded with the help of friends and Charlotte producer Jason “Jet” Jones, the album masterfully incorporates live and studio elements that work effortlessly to give a warm, retro feel throughout.” – Shirley Griffith, CLTure
Dot.s is an endeavor to take “dance music” far from where it comfortably rests in its current, popular state. They venture to challenge the status of an art form that began as something primal and turned into something calculated and boring and kinda depressing. Drums, bass, and synthesizers rest in the center of their five-piece arrangement, followed by whatever auxiliary instrumentation feels cozy on top of that.
