Real recognizes real, as they say. Last Summer, I had the great fortune of meeting Dave Johnson AKA DeModa over a coffee at Bushwick Public House. He had reached out to me about to chat about his upcoming works and towards the tail end of the conversation, it came out that he is a Steamfitter in Local 638, just like my Grandfather, Father, Uncles. Coffee quickly turned to beer, and an instant rapport was established.
Since then, DeModa served as the house DJ for our Blox Cord series at The Footlight while working on new original material which is now beginning to see the light of the day outside of teases at our gigs. The Lucid Dreams EP is on the way, out May 12th, and is led by singles “Downtown Glow” feat. Slow Shudder and “Blind Contour” feat. Foxtails Brigade.
The former is a buoyant indie-electro gem primed for any warmer weather playlist and the latter is a sprawling, spacey epic with fantastic toplines on both.
