Brooklyn-based musician Da’Vinci shows a hypnotic electronic sound throughout recent EP Stardust. Opener “Thisside” rides on pulsing effervescence and a steady percussive beat, setting the scene with amiable appeal. Suaver, funk-laden vibes on “Heatnup” strut a more energized sound, while closer “Getdown” shows an eerie, nocturnal beat. These four tracks all do well in showcasing unique soundscapes, maintaining a lush, hypnotic vibe through their differences. I’m looking forward to hearing what’s next from Da’Vinci.
“Thisside” and other memorable tracks from September can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of September 2020’ Spotify playlist.
