Our boy Donae’O is never one to disappoint and his brand new single Gone In The Morning proves just why. The track that features producer/DJ Carnao Beats (Audio Rehab) has taken it to a whole new vibe. D’s vocals echo through the song as he sings, ‘You told me to be gone in the morning’ and the tiny patter of drums and infectious synths is guaranteed to get the people on their feet. BBC Radio 1Xtra’s, DJ Cameo premiered it on his show and it has since been shortlisted and appeared as part of his official chart show the 1Xtra Garage Charts, where it’s currently #3. With additional radio support coming from Mark Radford, Lance Morgan and B3 it has also received a co-sign from the likes of Route 94 and Roger Sanchez.
Officially released in April under Donaeo’s label Zephron, the song also appears on his latest album Forest of Zephron released on 2nd December 2013. The album comes packed with sixteen bangers, featuring the likes of DJ Q, Lethal Bizzle, Sneakbo, Artful Mark, D Double E and many more. The showcase of true homegrown talent is rife throughout Forest of Zephron and Gone In The Morning is completely in his element alongside Carnao Beats.
The concept behind the latest project comes from the House rave, Zephron Parties which Donae’O holds every third week of the month down at Vibe Bar, Brick Lane. Over the last two years it’s had many notable appearances, which eventually influenced Donae’O to pursue his DJ roots after Simon Dunmore (Defected) also suggested following it up this year officially. The next instalment of the Zephron Parties is held on the 15th Feb, more information here.
Carnao Beats, who also worked on the track, says ‘Gone In The Morning has so many elements of dance music from electro dance to deep tech underground house, with signature sounds from myself to let people know I made the track’. Before linking up for the record, Carnao and Donae’O had spoken briefly about creating something together, but it was a family member of Carnao’s that finally put the two in the right situation to create one of the hottest releases of the 2014.
The official video for ‘Gone in the Morning’ will be out in the coming weeks!
