The Present, Rusty Santos & Mina Ohashi, offer a new strain of jungle, hip hop, house and footwork inflections.
Pop music for the the wide-eyed, backlit confines of the digital age, The Present inspires bodily twists and mental (mis)fits through vocal vapor trails and vibrant productions. Traversing tempos like madmen on ice, their new record Break The Dawn distills Atlanta haze (“Touch Base”), dive bomb basslines (“Illusion”), vocoder sensuality (“EZ”) and pulsing euphoria (“What’s Real”) through raw, post-club constructs.
Break The Dawn is available via Styles Upon Styles on March 24, 2017 in unlimited digital and limited vinyl forms.
