With a bevy of singles and remixes already under his belt, L.A. electro young gun Downlowd has something rather special and ambitious in store for his first full EP project. Not only are there six total tracks of Downlowd dancefloor shenanigans on offer, but they’re accompanied by a related comic book and music video.
Titled Origins, this conceptual affair is split into two halves. “The first half explores Downlowd’s conversion to computer-head and escape from his captors, while the second half delves into his journey home,” explains Downlowd, aka Trent Shamaley. “The latter [contains] all-new tracks that explore new characters and events Downlowd faces on his adventure in search of home. I don’t want to spoil anything, because there will be a story included with the release, but expect some twists.”
To give you a taste of this ambitious electro journey, we’re sharing “Gone,” a crossover vocal affair, featuring Danes vocalist Faunea, that’s brimming with crazy computerized sonics and changes in pace. Downlowd describes it as “a story about love, betrayal, and the loss of innocence that inevitably follows such things. Beyond that, it’s a detective mystery.”
