- The Dawn
- The Dawn (Dixon Remix)
Sounding the promise of long days ahead and late nights to follow with its opening salvos, Chloé’s
'The Dawn' heralds the return of the Paris-based DJ and producer after a 4 year hiatus since her last artist EP on My Favorite Robot Recordings , and a new dawn in her ever-evolving career.
'The Dawn' is the inaugural release on her own label Lumière Noire, which she recently set up having previously used the name for a collection of releases and her infamous Rex Club night, which has become a club house for Parisian electronic music fans since 2014. Operating Lumière Noire as a fully-fledged label will enable Chloé to release a new full-length album (of which 'The Dawn' is the lead single) in the Autumn.
Over the ten-plus minutes of 'The Dawn', a spoken-word track languishes over melodic washes in a dramatic progression that evokes a novel, or noir-ish cinema – a method that the producer has taken a shine to since 'Take Care'. This cultivation of the strange and the beautiful has become her calling card, putting her in a league with likeminded producers, who take the basic tenets of techno and inject them with their own singular poetic visions. A visual-arts analogue could be found in Noémie Goudal’s photographs which grace the EP’s cover as they will Chloé’s other upcoming releases.
This stirring aesthetic gives 'The Dawn' a cerebral dimension, which is taken to new depths with Dixon’s stubbornly technoid remix. Dixon inverts Chloé’s light-drenched, full-bodied production into a tense, captivating chiaroscuro.
