Benjamin Damage & Doc Daneeka feat. Abigail Wyles – Halo

Spheric minimal electronic tunes from Benjamin Damage & Doc Daneeka, an English producer duo, born within Modeselektor‘s label 50weapons. Their collaborative long player¬†They! Live¬† has just been released last week.

Watch their video for Halo with mysterious images within a dark setting (including the symbol for former Eastern German automobiles, a beige Trabant). Their distinct, light and drop-like beats and obscure soundscapes remind you of Modeselektor or Moderat just as much as of Burial and Four Tet. Overall, it achieves an interesting balance between sophisticated, ambient melancholy and dancefloor-ready techno. Abigail Wyles enriches this and two more tracks on the LP with her vocals, providing them with some higher pitches and a distinctively dreamy appeal.

Though Halo it the centerpiece of the album, many of its tracks are much more techno and house-affine, for example Creeper:

If you’re more into their smooth, obcure side and Abigail’s gentle voice, take Battleships as another great song:
