Continuing their prolific ways, Nikko.Z's Dopamine White welcomes Augusto Dassano to the label for his debut EP. Based in Cordoba, the Argentinean artist is in the early stages of his electronic music journey. A contribution to Balkan United's ‘Novus' Vol. 7 Collection marked Augusto's first ever release in November of last year. Now stepping up for his first official artist EP, the Argentine debuts on Dopamine White with ‘Moon Caress'.

Beginning with the title track Augusto crafts a powerful blend of melody and groove. Dynamic beats and a muscular low-end power the foundation while fluttery arps, buoyant percussion and sweeping effects provide colour and texture leading into the break. Tastefully tranquil, the centrepiece melts down to a collage of indistinct voices and sizzling effects, before a striking roll sparks a powerful drop and driving finale.

The companion piece ‘Solar Wind' continues the dark, groovy ethos of the release in fine style. Setting a dramatic tone from the outset, it's full, romping foundation creates a massive presence for clattering percussion and buzzing lines to flow freely into the main break. Expansive at over a minute in length, the centrepiece delights with it's rising tension and icy melodic drawl, perfectly setting up a thunderous final movement. It rounds out two excellent productions from Augusto Dassano, a fast-rising talent who looks to be one of 2021's top progressive house newcomers.
