There is no doubt that Australia has become a hotbed of musical innovation and talent. Enter Dugong Jr, a Melbourne-based producer who has got a truly unique and exciting sound, on full display in his new Pleasure Principle EP.
The EP features some awesome Australian collaborations, including a couple features from Melbourne rapper Jordan Dennis, whose HDMI2 album we recently covered. From top to bottom, the project rocks the grooviest of beats, sprinkled in with Dugong’s beautiful, experimental instrumentation.
Tracks like “Float,” “Regret,” and “On My Own” take on some more atmospheric qualities, and feature beautiful piano work. Of course, there is the irresistible groove on “Ghost,” featuring the lovely vocals of singer-songwriter Evangeline. And of course, the brilliant work of Jordan Dennis is on display on “Slow It Down” and “Drive,” where Dugong perfectly incorporates rap and R&B into his production.
If you are not plugged in to the amazing sounds of Dugong Jr, this is the perfect project to introduce you to his unique and groovy beats. Check the new project out in the stream below. Enjoy!
