Dj Pound – Trades
Dj Pound, aka Danny Gonzalez, is the latest producer to earn the support of the legendary DJ Shadow and his imprint, Liquid Amber. The Chula Vista native has earned features on Boiler Room and NEST HQ while support from his peers G Jones, Herobust, and more have shown that Dj Pound is quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with in the bass world. Gonzalez describes his sound as an “instrumental electronic kind of hip hop with really loud booming bass,” and his debut Liquid Amber release “Trades,” fits that description perfectly. Take a listen:
Released as the 3rd installment of the Liquid Amber Digital Dubplates series, “Trades” is everything fans have come to expect and love from a Dj Pound anthem. The hard-hitting trap influences and twists of hip-hop flair make for a triumphant crossover slice of sample-laden magic, one that fits perfectly with the California-based Liquid Amber vibe. An EP is also rumored to be coming out on Saturate Records later this year as it’s all coming full circle for this ground-breaking young artist as he makes his mark on the ever-evolving music scene.
Digital Dubplates is a new branch of the Liquid Amber family tree focusing on digital-only, single releases from up-and-coming artists. The series launched in 2015 with “Soda Pop,” from Wisconsinite Noer The Boy, followed by Dutch duo Know V.A.’s “Vomar.”
