Listen:David August -The Spell from upcoming EP

David August to Release “The Spell / A Golden Rush” EP Having performed in front of over 100,000 people this year alone, David August is set to finish 2016 in typically trailblazing fashion. His forthcoming “The Spell / A Golden Rush” EP is the second for Counter Records(Ninja Tune).
Lending weight to the announcement is news of August sharing the bill with electronic supergroup Moderat in Brussels (30/9) and Amsterdam (1/10) this weekend.
The 12” partners August’s previous release “J.B.Y. / Ouvert” and feels like a natural progression from where it left off. Boasting the same craftsmanship he lends to all of his productions, ‘The Spell’ track unites propulsive breakbeats and soaring pads over a lush sound-carpet of delicately arranged noise and field recordings before taking a sudden turn, a woman’s voice intruding to bind “The Spell” in words.

‘A Golden Rush’ also utilizes vocals, representing David August’s first officially released co-written song alongside hitherto unknown singer-songwriter Nelia Kit. On working with the fellow Berlin-based artist, David says:
Nelia and I have been friends for a while. She was telling me about her songwriting, so one day she came over to my studio and brought these lyrics with her. We jammed on the guitar to it and recorded it right away.
David is playing alongside Moderat this weekend:
30th: Forest National, Brussels
1st: Heineken Music Hall, Brussels
