D∆WN, or Dawn Richard formerly of Danity Kane, has built quite the R&B pop empire for herself since she went off on her solo adventure. The New Orleans based chanteuse adds to her ever growing repertoire of immensely captivating songs with Break Me, an atmospheric beauty produced by LEONCE. Dark hip hop beats and serrated synths perforate the fleecy late night soundscape found on this absolutely stunning piece. We’ve shared a ton of songs from D∆WN in the past, but Break Me quickly takes the crown as my new favorite.

Prepare to display your fine jittering footwork as Machinedrum inebriates us with his fizzy clattering new single, Do It 4 U, which features guest vocals by ex Danity Kane member D∆WN, whose solo career has been nothing short of magnificent as of late.  Do It 4 U is a shiver inducing taste from Machinedrum’s new LP, Human Energy. It skitters restlessly, its jungly rich agitation thoroughly exhilarating and contagious. Purchase Do It 4 U from various outlets, here. Travis’ new album Human energy drops September 30th on Ninja Tune.

It’s a collaboration for the ages on Lemonade Lakes, the latest track from Yours Truly and Adidas Originals’ #songfromscratch series. I suppose we should thank them both for pairing oshi and D∆WN together on a savage scintillating, future vibing R&B and minimalist electronica masterpiece. The viscous brooding song is hypnotic dazzling and nebulous haunting. London’s oshi, whom I was fortunate enough to catch at SXSW back in March, crafts an erotic entrancing soundscape, while Danity Kane veteran and fast rising sultry songstress Dawn Richard delivers one of her most riveting performances yet.

I never really listened to Danity Kane in my younger days, as much as they were an influential force in the music scene for quite some time, but I’m most certainly following along with ex Danity Kane member Dawn Richard’s solo career these days. And I’m not the only one, too. Dawn Richard, or D∆WN, has been releasing some stellar eletropop and R&B ballads, turning heads and winning ears over all across the tastemakers board. D∆WN goes dance energetic on zippy piquant new tune Wake Up, a whorling magnificent, throbbing dynamic jam produced by ever brilliant Machinedrum. It’s no secret that D∆WN’s forthcoming full length RED*emp*tion is shaping up to be a must listen release when it comes out later this year. Wake Up is available now from iTunes.

Dawn Richard, or D∆WN, is building an impressive solo career post-Danity Kane. Her dark electronic pop and R&B is bold, polished, and arresting. New song Honest is a testament to her rising star, an intensely emotional inferno brilliantly produced by venerated producer and Fade To Mind founder Kingdom. The spaciously bustling, beats shuffling aria is out now on said label, and available for purchase from iTunes.

Not having watched much of reality television show Making The Band or been a massive fan of Danity Kane, I must confess that I’m not altogether familiar with New Orleans chanteuse Dawn Richard, who releases solo music as D∆WN. But she’s certainly caught my attention lately with her originals, out of which one of the latest is a stunning electronic pop single entitled Not Above That produced by venerated Machinedrum. Not Above That is a soaring, polished pop gem, an immediately hooking track from her upcoming project Redemption aka The Red Era. Its slicing urgency and chopping frenzy make for a rousing blend of future bass and R&B pop, all capped by D∆WNs siren like, enthralling vocal excellence. Not Above That will be available tomorrow, January 29th, on iTunes.
