Since his inception in April of 2015, NYC-based producer DeModa (real name David Johnson) has quickly made a name for himself in the digital and live arenas. His original and remix material has garnered tens of thousands of plays on Soundcloud and his performances go beyond that of a traditional DJ as he incorporates live keyboards, drum pads, guitars and mixers.
With his recent remixes of Porter Robinson & Madeon’s hit single “Shelter,” M83’s “Go!” and FRND’s “Friend” continuing to amass streams, DeModa now shares a new EP, Lucid Dreams. The four track EP features toplines from Foxtails Brigade, Slow Shudder and Kisos and marks DeModa’s most diverse and polished collection of original material yet.
Notably, the EP’s lead single, “Downtown Glow” feat. Slow Shudder, has been added to several Spotify playlists including, most recently, Martin Garrix’s personal one amassing nearly 200k streams to date.
“Downtown Glow” and “Blind Contour,” have dropped on The Line of Best Fit and Kick Kick Snare respectively with the latter saying, “With arpeggiating synths, big guitars, and even a hair of live drums, DeModa wraps us up a blanket of sound that we can’t help but cozy up to.”
