DNMO and AKACIA, “Rogue”
Hailing from Cornwall in the UK, producer and songwriter DNMO (aka Aiden Morgan) is probably the most noteworthy teen on the rise in the biz and definitely shows a different side of what he can offer with the dark “Rogue”, featuring a sly but beautiful vocal by Australian singer Akacia. With its almost metronome beat to build momentum, “Rogue” teases you with the soft voice of Akacia, but what she’s singing about continues to make you wonder what’s going to happen next. There’s a bit of controlled foreboding and lots of attitude present, and then a brief trap-influenced drop surfaces to reassure you that something out of the ordinary is about to happen when the singer goes ‘rogue’. The folks behind Deadbeats Records are going to push the music of DNMO to its limits so expect to hear much more very soon. “Rogue” is an intriguing and adventurous next step for DNMO.
