Premiere: Dusty Kid – “Doa”


The student has become a teacher. About a decade ago musical upstart Dusty Kid (the nom de plume of wildly talented Italian producer Paolo Alberto Lodde) entered the electronic music scene with a treasure trove of fresh ideas. Freely exploring electro, minimal and tech-house, his productions found their way onto choice releases for esteemed labels including Southern Fried, BPitch Control and Kling Klong.

After presenting the world with 2013’s cinematic III (his brilliant techno-infused Duoteque releases with Andrea Ferlin on Boxer Recordings are also suggested listening), the Sardinian phenom is back with evocative new ear candy.

In September, Dusky Kid will release his new album, Not So Green Fields, a journey which finds him continuing on his quest to go where no other electronic music producer has gone before. In the meantime, he’s set to unveil a terrific EP, The Arsonist, and we’re thrilled to world premiere an exclusive non-LP version of “Doa” from the upcoming three-tracker.

An epic Balearic masterpiece brandishing lush acoustic guitar performed by The Heart and The Void and vocals hummed by the Kid himself, the gorgeous “Doa” is a poignant homage to his musical idol Ennio Morricone.

Where many producers pay lip service to musical innovation, Dusky Kid simply let’s his music do the talking.

Dusky Kid’s The Arsonist EP is out July 27, 2015 via Isolade. Look for his new album, Not So Green Fields, dropping September 4, 2015.
