Today, legendary music curator, founder of Mind of a Genius Records, and prodigal producer David Dann emerged from self-imposed isolation in the studio with his first new music in seven years. Following back to back Grammy-nominated projects under Zhu for ‘Faded’ and Gallant for the album ‘Ology’, the self-produced track is the latest zig in a road of zags that make up a 15-year career tradition of perking ears and rubbering necks. From label boss, to music curator, to music producer, and more, Dann effortlessly wears multiple hats.
‘You & Me’ showcases David’s impressive production skills and proving that seven years later, he’s still got it! Nicolas’ vocals are the perfect addition to the instrumental and take the overall record to the next level. Dann’s chilled tempo and casual nostalgia pours like a waterfall of emotion from behind the dreamy vocals. Both fresh and familiar, it’s the ideal way for David Dann’s fans to draw on the bottomless well of his creative ingenuity to push through the mire of their own pandemic instigated loneliness.
“This one has a bittersweet tone to it,” Dann said of the song. “This song felt like it was the perfect track to relaunch my artist project. So the second we were done with the track, we were immediately excited to share it with the world. We have an incredibly visceral and cinematic music video to follow, which I think fans will find gripping like a classic action movie, but with vulnerable moments to match the song’s ethos.
On the horizon, more new music appears to be on the way. Dann is slated to release a series of similarly introspective, yet euphoric electronic music tracks suited for home listening and club nights alike.
