Dawn of Midi sign to Erased Tapes and re-release debut album

Dawn of Midi - Dysnomia

We’ve had our ears tuned to Brooklyn’s tremendous trio Dawn of Midi for a while. Their magnificent and addictive debut album, Dysnomia, originally released in 2013 via Thirsty Ear, had only seen a US release. So we’re very pleased to know that Dysnomia got the attention of Erased Tapes who are re-releasing the album worldwide. Slated for a June 1st release, Dysnomia will be available in vinyl, CD and digital formats, including a limited edition clear double 12″ vinyl.

Speaking about the upcoming reissue, double bassist Aakaash Israni said that “since the album never saw a proper international release, it is very exciting to see what might happen when more people are exposed to it. And to be aligned with Erased Tapes, whose enthusiasm for the music they release has done a lot for exposing unique instrumental and electronic music, makes it that much more interesting.”.  About the album, Israni said they “wanted to make a record that sounded both musically futuristic and sonically vintage”.  Pianist Amino Belyamani added that they “didn’t want to create anything cerebral, we wanted something visceral, something that would awaken our instinctive dance impulses.”.

Dawn of Midi are also heading to Europe in April and May for a month-long tour supporting label mate Nils Frahm.
To get you further enticed, wrap your ears around ‘Nix’, a beautiful and hypnotic cut lifted from Dysnomia.
