I’m not sure what to make of New Haven electronic producer D.Gookin. I’ve been grooving to his new tune ‘Unbraid the Knot’ all morning, but it’s a confusing beast.
D.Gookin, A.K.A. Mike Birnbaum seems to have taken a chaotic, breaks inspired experimental dance track and crammed it into the box of a sweet melodic Electro Soul tune, and the end result really works. The big noisy beats and distorted percussion are off set by smooth vocoding and a catchy riff. ‘Unbraid The Knot’ has a raw sound, this just tends to add to it’s charm. D.Gookin reportedly has an intense live show, this I can believe.
D.Gookin’s new album, ‘Spiral Style’ is out 23rd august on Moodgadget.
