Doons drops his ‘Gone Away’ EP on Dark Shade Records


‘Gone Away’ EP by Doons is a two-track EP coming on Dark Shade Records on 16th December

Doons, a Miami, FL resident has been crushing it with his recent releases with labels such as Repopulate Mars, Happy Techno, Tech Avenue Records, Nervous and many others. We are extremely happy to have him join the family it’s been a long time coming but he came correct to bring us this 2 track ep slapper.

‘Gone Away’ has a catchy hip-hop vocal sample that made the track have what we would call the icing on the cake. Then when that drop hits we get that smooth bouncy bassline groove throughout the track with some monster stabs this one is a definite tech groover for after-hours.

Manimal has really captured the focus to be on the low end where he just lets the kick and bass ride alone then smacks you with quirky sounds and vocal manipulation which is what we find to be the most fun in this track.

“When I make music, I try to focus on an arrangement that not only fits most dj sets, but also creating a groove that won’t get outdated in a short time. Todays electronic music emphasizes the direction of the baseline, this motivates me to put the majority of my efforts on creating my track around the kick and the bass. This 2 track EP is a perfect example of both. I produced these 2 tracks over a year ago, playing them enough to confirm they will stand out for many years to come. When my chest shakes from the low-end and the groove keep my feet moving, I know I did my job. With that in mind, it was also important to me where to go with them. I have been fortunate and blessed to have signed with major record labels throughout my production career.

But to me, contributing to those smaller quality labels, which I am confident will be on the map in the years to come, is becoming more and more important. So, I am beyond excited and happy to have landed my Gone Away EP with Dark Shades Records. Not only have I witnessed their growth in such a short time but I have the greatest love, respect and admiration for the talent running the label. I am looking forward to putting out more records with the Dark Shades fam in the years to come and more importantly, playing a part of their success story.”
