Featuring a combination of organic and electronic instrumentation, “No Filter” features guitar strums, percussion, synth, and a haunting vocal top line from DOT that quite literally “numbs the senses.” In a conversation with NEST HQ, DOT elaborates on the the collaborative process that culminated in “No Filter:”

““No Filter” actually began as a beat for a TeamSupreme cypher. Stein was in LA for a few days, so we did most of the writing and recording at my house in Echo Park, then ended up finishing it at his studio in Brooklyn when I was there last summer. Jonathan is probably one of my favorite people to work with of all time — we seem to balance one another’s styles really well during sessions. I’m always way up in the clouds with floaty melodies and emotions while he brings the grounded energy with bass and production.”

No Filter” follows DOT and STEIN’s February 14th, 2017 release of their “Modern Romance” music video set to the tune of their collaboration of the same name.

Forthcoming, “No Filter” will be featured on DOT’s debut artist album, Retrofuture, due for release in April 2017. To date, DOT has amassed a loyal fanbase around the world thanks to a constant output of original material that has seen praise from outlets including Pitchfork, LA Weekly, Okayfuture, MTV Brazil, and more. In addition, she is also a member of LA artist collective Team Supreme alongside JNTHN STEIN, and stands as label head and founder of Unspeakable Records– a label specifically established for female producers and musicians.
