We here at XLR8R are undoubtedly open minded when it comes to listening to new music, which is to say we always enjoy the chance to hear the wide array of unknown producers out in the world. In that vein, we have for you “Dawson” by newcomer Monoak. Though the Irish-born, London-based artist is undoubtedly a previously unseen face on the scene, this first taste of his work might lead you to think he’s been at it for some time. “Dawson” is a dark, uptempo number that showcases a mature, techno-influenced sound, and hints at what’s in store when Monoak’s debut release drops sometime in February.
