Falling Again: David August

26.01.11,

With pop precision David August lambasts the senses; draining house, techno, disco and soul trappings for their entire worth. Not an easy task, working from such a multifarious confluence of styles, but this young Hamburger ties melodies together like knots and the navy. His recent release on hometown label Diynamic, ‘Peace of Conscience’, serves as a perfect follow up to last years’ ‘Instant Harmony’ EP. Since then his rising stock has never paused for breath and with every passing cut his unique wholeness and attention to detail becomes more refined without losing its accessibility. With some luck a full length 12” is somewhere in the pipeline.

David August will play The Russian Bar in London on February 26th
