DJ Dove lands on Unlearn:Records with a new EP

Share

DJ Dove blends classic house and US garage with upfront tech house on the latest EP of his storied career. 

Born in New York City and raised in Hoboken, New Jersey by Cuban parents, Barbarito Capote aka DJ Dove had devoted most of his career fine-tuning the sultry sounds heard throughout his eleven years as a producer. Over a career spanning multiple decades, Dove has performed alongside such luminaries as DJ Disciple, Roger Sanchez, Bob Sinclar, Todd Terry, Robbie Rivera and has collaborated in the studio with many more.

DJ Dove’s most notable productions have included Inaya Day’s I’m Touched and Unkind with Milk ‘N’ Sugar, as well as Nobody But You featuring Ladylife, with a sound that rooted in classic house and US garage. More recently Dove has moved into tech house territory, releasing on labels like Circus and Wyldcard, and now lands on Unlearn with the two-track Your Lovin My Lovin / Booty.

Your Luvin My Luvin perfectly marries DJ Doves formative years with the current direction of his sound, pairing a seductive, soulful vocal and warm chords with chunky beats and a hypnotic rolling groove to tremendous effect. On the flip, Booty is a deeper and for the later floors, with chopped vocals and a powerful driving rhythm proving the stars of the show.   

We premiere ‘Booty’ on Data Transmission, check it out here and grab it on Beatport.

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
