♫♪  Golden Donna - “Secrets”

I can get a lot of mileage out of a minimal techno act, especially if they lay down some very smooth grooves for 7-10 minutes. Thankfully, that’s a lot of what Joel Shanahan’s new Golden Donna EP, Seedy Approach, is allllll about! Big shout out to my dawg Bobby Power over at Decoder for making me wise to this release, because this for sure would have flown under my radar without his seasoned internet surfing ways to guide me.

“Secrets” has that crisp percussion and deep house synths that make Shanahan’s works as GD or Auscultation such a treat to jam. This dude has had a stellar year, and you’ll already know if you’re one of the lucky ones who caught his L’étreinte Imaginaire tape on 100% Silk this summer. Seedy Approach is a perfect cap to the year for GD, lest he have something else that’s set for an end of the year “drop”? That’d be sick if he did, but if not, it’s all good, my friends. Seedy Approach is currently available in vinyl and digital via CGI Records. Grab your copy here.
