This album is perfect for lounging at the Martini bar with a cocktail. Can you see it? It’s got the perfect Downtempo sound with substance and perfectly sweet. A cool 10 tracks with a proper bonus remix. There’s something about ‘Futuristic Soul’ that sets a precedent for good quality music that will always be ahead of it’s time! Each song is strikingly hypnotic….almost meditative.
Atlanta based ‘army kid’ import DezarayDawn, has nailed a distinct sound and evokes thought by song rather than the usual listening ‘journey’ through the whole album. Each track can make strong standalone singles. Listen to single Over It. I first heard and still have Blue Six’s Aquarian Angel (2007) on rotation and I believe Dezaray’s The Dawning is taking its place.
The album is mellow with its intro title (The Dawning) and serves as an excellent entry into the world of Dezaray Dawn. This album challenges RnB artists to really push the envelope with sound rather than catchy empty lyrics. The Dawning is a perfect mixture of Electronic and RnB music. Tracks to tantalize your ears: Da Day, Over It (2012), Chameleon (AppleJac’s Sound of Mecca Remix). My personal favourite is Brand New- it has an awesome chorus and sound. If you love ambient with soul, this album is yours!
