D∆WN – Not Above That (VR Experience Video)
D∆WN continues to break down barriers and go where few indie artists have gone before and today she embarks on her next massive leap with the 3D VR video for “Not Above That”. As the first female artist ever to launch a VR video of this caliber, with spatial sound interwoven in a dynamic storyline, the “Not Above That” video transports viewers through a universe of vortexes, wormholes, exploding planets, asteroid fields and a stunning universe, back to a holographic D∆WN singing in front of the spaceship’s dashboard, where she eventually joins in with the other dancers for an intergalactic performance. D∆WN teamed up with directors DJ Turner and Monty Marsh to execute her vision, long time production partner Guerilla Filmworx for creative development & 2D production and the esteemed VR Playhouse for all of the effects.
“Not Above That” came out in early 2016 on Local Action, with nods from Pitchfork, FACT, Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, Jezebel, Stereogum, SPIN, The FADER, Resident Advisor, Tiny Mixtapes and more. Since sharing the song, she’s also dropped “Wake Up”, a new song and video from her upcoming album, the Infrared EP produced by Kingdom and a Yours Truly Songs From Scratch collaboration with Oshi. Her next album, RED*emp*tion, the third in a trilogy with her critically-acclaimed Goldenheart and Blackheart, is slated for release this fall.
D∆WN also just announced she will be doing a special live performance for Boiler Room in London on June 22 with Machinedrum, Murlo and Yamaneko opening. For more info visit: https://boilerroom.tv/session/london-dawn-machinedrum/.
