Fresh on my map is yet another talented new producer from Down Under. Yep, another electronic genius from the land of Oz, there are so many lately! His name is Basenji (as in the breed of dog), which may explain the random few dog barks in his latest and third official release, Dawn. Like so many of his fellow producers that I love, his music shimmers wonderfully, moving through all kinds of pulsing and stabbing electronic elements. There’s a funky sheen and ambient trappy-ness to the airy, staccato track, as well as some great, twinkling glockenspiel towards the end. I’d imagine whoever makes a video for this track could really have some animated fun with it. There are those who are already comparing Basenji to Cashmere Cat, and in fitting fashion, Basenji has a track crafted in dedication to the Cat from a couple months ago. Stream Tribute To The Cat below, as well as his only other tune, Speak With A Dofflin. Dare I venture to guess that Basenji loves animals?
