Horror vacui. I can’t fall asleep anymore. We should have burned the boats.

- How I Get It
- Paint It Blue
The 4-track project is the result of the meeting of Dawn and the Fade to Mind team. They recently shared the lead single “HONEST,” a sultry, boundary-less blend of jungle and R&B.
The EP expands on the themes of love and independence over a hi-definition musical landscape. From the pulsating bass and teasing breakbeats of “HONEST” to the dystopian shimmer of “How I Get It” these records inhabit a complex, emotive realm that only D∆WN could pilot. A songwriter in her own right, she rarely collaborates with others, making Infrared a special example of a chemistry that drew Fade and her together. Produced entirely by Kingdom with co-writing and lyrics by Prince Will (who also worked closely writing CUT 4 ME with Kelela), Infrared is the latest electronic communication from the Fade to Mind world.

After a year focused on vocal collaborations and curating his Fade to Mind imprint, Kingdom returns with Shox, a two track instrumental EP, and the first element in a wave of new Kingdom material set to debut this year. Two delicately brutal tracks that are equally at home in the club or as the soundtrack to late-night off-road drives. While working on his forthcoming debut album set to be released later this year, Kingdom dove deeper into emotional instrumental territories, sonics he developed while working alongside vocalists and songwriters like Sza, Kelela, and Dawn Richard, as well as through collaboration with Prince William and Bok Bok. With a unique approach to blending R&B and club music, Kingdom’s maturation as a composer continues down the path he blazed with his last release, Vertical XL (2013).
Shox is a crystalline club track that embraces an otherworldly industrial aesthetic, a devastating half-time beat driven by horns and hydraulic drums. Punished embodies the rap-club aesthetic Kingdom pioneered in his early dj sets and seminal mixtapes, allowing intricate percussion work to find its voice on top of the heavy bass, embodying a night of hedonism and the resulting physical punishment of waking life the next day. Both tracks merge influences ranging from ATL rap to first-wave R&Grime, held together by Kingdom’s signature sound design and flourish for mystical club music.

- Cellar Theme
- Brass Claim
- Definite Sentence
- NA in a Mood
Cellar, the second solo EP from NA (Daniel Pineda of Nguzunguzu) on Fade to Mind, is a kinetic and brooding journey through the ominous side of club music, a personal vision of dystopia and angst. With 5 tracks that showcase NA’s wide-ranging musical influences, the record provides a personal manifesto for Pineda’s vision of club music for darker times. Texturally, all tracks on Cellar are drawn together by aggressive metallic manipulations, crisp percussion and devastating low-end. Highlighting NA’s technical skills as a producer, there is a careful balance between distortion and direct sound, resulting in highly atmospheric yet club-ready experiments.

- Iron Cages ft. Odile Myrtil
- Fucking Fascist
- Twitch Queen
- Black Jacobins
Rizzla’s debut EP, Iron Cages, is heavily influenced by his obsessive explorations into ragga, soca, dembow, bubbling and hardstyle – all laced with the signature sinister laughs and masochistic moaning of his early bootlegs. Title track “Iron Cages” features Daniel Aged of Inc. on guitars and Montreal-based singer and producer Odile Myrtil delivering vocals.
