“Dunt and Sam West team up to deliver a fresh dark electro pop blend, without been afraid to innovate or please the ears which are used to flirted by common sounds and grooves. But to awake, offering a different taste that will explode listeners senses, like everything great new started before become classic. Exuberant sound design and abundant vocals into a total different style, trust us you will love it and you will volume up! Released by Southside Deluxe.”

Dunt’s second release of 2020 (from forthcoming album‘Starter Pact’) is a dusty, head-noddy collaboration with singer/ composer/ sound-designer Sam West, taking influences from Flying Lotus, Amon Tobin and JamesBlake. The track has already secured national and local radio airplay (BBC, Amazing Radio, Radio Kaos Carribou and more) and music video due for release on Thursday 3rd of December.

Other-worldly, anxious and meditative- made up of equal parts poignant vocals, butchered breaks, shimmering synths and guttural bass- ‘Dark Between Stars’ explores the seemingly insignificant spaces that make up the bigger picture

As producer, drummer and writer with alternative hip-hop heroes Stanley Odd, Dunt has extensively toured the UK and beyond, releasing multiple albums to critical acclaim. His production on Solareye’s ‘All These People Are Me’ won Best Hip-Hop at the Scottish Alternative Music Awards 2018, and his collaborations with SHEARS’ dark electro pop has seen national radio plays, a place on the LIST Hot 100 and recently BBC’s UK-wide Introducing ‘Hot List’ for 2020.
