Damon Eliza Palermo
L.A-based Damon Eliza Palermo (Magic Touch) announces his new EP
Beacon of Macaraibo via-Johnkôôl Records and shares his first video for
the single Zoa Peak
After a great party, a meditative walk home. The grey morning. Fog, birds, a welcome
silence after the last kick drum. The music Damon Eliza Palermo makes under his
birth name is for these contemplative moments, to reflect while walking, at home, or in
a solitary dance floor zone.
This meditative yen has always coursed through Palermo's music. It was there in his dubby,
tom-heavy drumming for Mi Ami, and in the propulsive kraut-house exuberance of his early
Magic Touch singles for 100% Silk, but now, other elements fall by the wayside in a search for clarity.
Older and (hopefully) wiser, Palermo's interested in making sense of his peripatetic existence through naturalistic loops and great swaths of sound.
Damon trawls through the meditative side of house on his monthly NTS show, Inner Realm, along with the ambient and new age masters whose work he's avidly studied.
He too, succeeds in making music to get lost in, sound that acts calming salve as you float in and out of consciousness and towards your bliss.
Damon Eliza Palermo's new album Beacon of Macaraibo will be released this Friday through Johnkôôl Records / Idol.
