Brooklyn producer and songwriter Jonathan Dagan left an indelible mark on us as J.Views his 401 Days album last year, the culmination of a brilliant feat he called the DNA Project that brought all sorts of artists and musicians together over the course of two years to create incredible music. The Grammy nominations 401 Days received were well deserved, and just thinking about the release makes me want to go back and give it a hearty re-visit. A deluxe edition of 401 Days, entitled 401.1, will be out on October 5th. Among its new tracks is a transcendental remix of J.Views’ Don’t Pull Away, certainly one of the most smoothly seductive, lushly textured numbers from the album. Don’t Pull Away features Rhye’s Milosh on soft sensuous vocals, and now Los Angeles electro soul duo RKCB have given the track a sublimely billowing, wispy diaphanous edit that lulls us into a new plane of weightless euphoria. In other news, J.Views and Global Citizen have teamed up to create the #WeMove campaign empowering people to dance in public spaces around the world. The campaign will peak at the Global Citizen Festival in Central Park in two days. Learn more, here. Catch J.Views on tour this fall across the U.S. He’ll be stopping by the Independent in San Francisco on November 18th. More details can be found on Facebook, here.
