David August Vinyl, CD & tapes from this artist at Norman Records
David August has always felt an affinity to the parts of him that came from Palestrina in Italy. On D'Angelo he takes his first steps in exploring this feeling in public. Recorded in Italy (by necessity), the album is a muscular mixture of Balearic pop and darker sounds of the noir soundtrack.

David August lets the drums drop away for this latest LP. DCXXXIX is made up of twenty-four tracks that investigate all things ambient. Droning synths, nuggets of found sound, idly hit percussion, some ivory-tinkling, that sort of thing. A nice record to get lost in for an hour. Will appeal to fans of the Icelandic school and some of the more hissing fauna-type stuff that Posh Isolation have been putting out recently.
- Vinyl Double LP (99CHANTS1LP)
New sounds from David August. The Spell jumps off from his previous work into a delicate blend of breakbeats and abstract sound-spaces: a curious mixture for all you ambient dancers out there. The second track, A Golden Rush, includes the vocals and writing skills of Nelia Kit. 12” release on the Counter label.
The first solo record in 2 years from David August arrives on Counter, the Ninja Tune-affiliated label. He’s been busy playing with the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin you see… But he hasn’t forgotten his house music routes, as J.B.Y / Ouvert capably proves with its shimmer and bounce. 180g vinyl pressing.
