Bwana recent 'Flute Dreams EP' for Will Saul's Aus Music imprint is already being hailed as a potential record of 2014, with near universal support in the press and his peers. The title track has been featured in both Sasha and Huxley's respective Essential Mixes for BBC Radio 1, as well as in sets and mixes from names including Laurent Garnier, J. Phlip and Jacques Greene. Clearly it's no fluke that the young Canadian has become the first North American to release on the esteemed label, already home to the music of names like Midland, Dusky, Joy Orbison and many more.

Having cut his teeth with a series of critically acclaimed EP's in 2012, Bwana(aka Nathan Micay) made a conscious decision to step out of the limelight in 2013 and take the proper time needed to develop both his sound and abilities in the studio. In his own words: "this time was incredibly fruitful and I'm happy to be back now with more than enough music ready to be released in the coming years. Music that I know I can be proud of."
Dauwd creates music with a complexity most contemporary producers shy away from. Found sounds are thickly laden over multi-timbred synths, vocal and instrumental stabs punctuate organic and evolving passages guided always by driving percussion and immaculate bass production. The method, "make a noise, make it my noise,then give it some rhythm" certainly seems to work for Dauwd.
"I have collected quite a large archive of sound, from sampling, recording and rummaging through the net. Mostly the samples I use are fairly random, I will audition all kinds of things; if it sounds right it stays, otherwise it goes."

After a year DJing at some of Europe's best clubs and festivals, Dauwd returns this autumn with a four track co-released by Ghostly International and Pictures Music (UK). His sound, leaning now further towards house and techno, incorporates elements of soundscape and showcases and obsessive attention to detail within his production world.
