Bee Gees 70’s soul meets the cutting edge production of Daft Punk in Quiet Domino’s new single “Slo Mo.” Complete with a late 70’s style baseline that could’ve been written by Rick James, warm synth melodies and a falsetto voice that rivals Barry Gibb, San Francisco-based multi-instrumentalist Mark Nelson has a unique combination of influences that’s sending him in a compelling new direction, down the creative path that puts him in the league of neo-funk sample-masters The Avalanches, Mayor Hawthorne, TV Girl and a few others who are redefining and re-purposing soul, funk and mo-town in the digital age. Although Quiet Domino is a relatively new project and Mark has released a minimal amount of music we expect many more bangers like this one! Like he sings in the track “you’re on a million mile run, with a million more to run.”
Quiet Domino is the indietronica moniker of San Francisco-based musician, vocalist, and producer Mark Nelsen. Founded in 2017, the project was constructed around a single song, a new synthesizer, and a quest for new colors. An eclectic songwriter, Nelsen had been focusing on his folkier acoustic compositions and playing in local retro-rock bands full time until the new alter-ego found him. QD quickly became a vehicle to freely experiment with electronic grooves and production collaborations in studio and on stage. As a live act, he currently performs as a one-man band, fusing cerebral dance rhythms with expressive synth-pop hooks and atmospheric guitar leads. The debut single and video “Metropelium” premiered in April 2017, with a series of follow up tracks releasing in 2018 including the psych neo-soul fueled “Slo Mo” which we are pleased to premiere today.
