Dave Owen spins a drum-n-bass world of “Hoes & Shows” on his contribution to Rad Summer!:
With more than a bit of work, Rad Summer has been able to wrangle a 4 track EP out of liquid drum-n-bass aficionado Dave Owen. RS005 “Hoes & Shows” is producer Dave O’s love letter to old school, funky, and soulful jungle. The project opens with the lead track “Hoes & Shows”, a liquid track with a jump-up twist; next it moves into Lemi Vice’s dubstep remix of the lead; the third track is the OG version of “Conundrum”, a remix of which dropped on iQ last year; and the EP finally culminates with Dave’s remix of “Sooner or Later” by Rad Summer emcee Oreo Jones. RS005 is in digital retailers now.
If you’ve been listening to drum-n-bass for the past 2 years, it would be nearly impossible not to encounter the name Dave Owen. With tracks like “Yo Girl” prepping to be released sometime soon and in heavy rotation on the BBC, Dave Owen is quickly becoming one of the biggest names in stateside DnB. With a solid understanding of sound and an awe-inspiring knack for crate digging, Dee Oh!’s crafting some of the slickest tunes this side of the Atlantic. Watch for this cat to do huge things including playing Dublin and London for the first time in the next coming months!
