[Premiere] Des McMahon “Dopamine”
[Premiere] Des McMahon “Dopamine”

On the come up in a serious way over the course of the past year, Los Angeles’ own Des McMahon surfaces on Santoku Records with a heavyweight selection of some of his best work to date. Having appeared on a variety of imprints ranging from Circus, Technique, Human, Get Hype, Play Me Too, and our very own Insomniac Records, this EP on Logam’s stateside imprint marks a shift in the young producers output as he begins to close in on a sound that is sure to accelerate his climb to the top of the ranks.

With collabs from Mean Teeth and Logam on the EP and a series of tech-tinged cuts that span the gap between the dark, deep, and upfront sides of the dancefloor, it’s this dirty heater called “Dopamine” that we’re premiering below that really has us locked and loaded. From the cinematic atmospheres that swirl around the edges to that crisp percussion that cuts through a bubbling bassline with expert precision, it’s the mother of all grooves and proves why Des McMahon is the one to watch in the coming year as he continues to level up like a boss.

This is a massive release from the youngblood so check the premiere below and prepare for the full EP to drop as a Beatport exclusive on July 27.
