For the past few years, Dauwd has been providing deep Chicago-style house music full of sensual beats and lush transitions. The London-based producer has a fascination for interweaving quality material of playful grooves, tribal percussion, subterranean synths, and down-pitched vocals. Apart of the always enchanting Ghostly International label, Dauwd released his official debut EP “Heat Division” early last year. Listen below:


My first introduction to Dauwd was from his gorgeous 2011 single “What’s There”…  I remember after listening to these two tracks, I played them over and over and over again for months. This is not your typical house music, it’s a work of sultry electronic art in the finest sense.  Enjoy!



Dauwd‘s remix of COMA‘s “My Orbit” turns into pure bliss.

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter
