D33J is a Los Angeles artist who's brought a gothic touch to soulful beats for rappers like Lil Yachty and Tory Lanez, and who bodied his co-producing duties on Corbin's synthpop track "ICE BOY." Today, he's announcing his three-years-in-the-making debut album Death Valley Oasis, and its lead single "Black Ice" premieres today on The FADER. It's a house music meditation with an enchanting, isolated feeling, the sound of a deep internal revelation catalyzed by a raucous, sweaty party.
"'Black Ice' is a lullaby for those moments of hypnagogia," D33J explained over email. "A blip of self awareness in a moment of disconnect. The moment of coming to in an altered state and echo chamber of paralysis in a place of paradise.”
Death Valley Oasis is out September 8 via Anticon Records. It features appearances from Deradoorian, Baths, Corbin, and Shlohmo.
