Great Dane to release self-titled album March 10 on Alpha Pup Records

By on March 5, 2015

great dane picHumming with bass, smeared with synths, and shaken until foamy, this self-titled LP is LA-based beat scene mastermind and TeamSupreme collective co-founder Great Dane’s most considerable release to date. His third full-length album with Alpha Pup Records, Great Dane is a bass-directed twenty track collection of expansive synthetics and psychotropic percussion that strikes a balance between pristine, thoughtful productions, and dancefloor-packing filth.

 

This album drips with pure West Coast vibes, from the laid-back roll of “Devil Dance” to the hot breath of “Bat Whore“. Lead single “DVN3”, which was premiered by Vice Thump, encompasses a stuttered space between beauty and bounce, with the slightest tinge of trap. “Fairhaven”, premiered by Earmilk earlier this week, is beautifully laid back, with bubbly synth lines that float over low key percussion.
Beloved by fellow DJs, Great Dane just got back from touring North America with TeamSupreme cohorts Djemba Djemba and Mr. Carmack, and will be celebrating this album’s release by headlining shows at Denver’s Cervantes and LA’s Low End Theory.
