LISTEN: “Tonight” by Dom Zilla
Take a listen to “Tonight” by Dom Zilla, taken from his sophomore EP ii.
Dom started making music from his bedroom in Newcastle at the age of 12. Honing his skills he quickly began making a name for himself on the local hip-hop scene, and at 19 his beats were being used by artists such as Raekwon, Skinnyman and Fallacy.
With a change in musical direction, Dom Zilla saw underground success and critical acclaim producing and co-writing for Lulu James – a heady fusion of her soulful vocal tones juxtaposed against his warped electronic textures and sparse beats.
Using keys, light switches and doors closing to add depth to the electronic foundation, Dom’s joining the ranks with Jon Hopkins, James Blake, J Dilla etc as pioneering a new form of electronic music with a subtle urgency.
