An underground sensation no longer, Great Dane explodes into the greater consciousness with a massive 20-track album on seminal label Alpha Pup Records tomorrow (March 10). The monster collection of moody beats and dreamy chilltrap has Los Angeles stamped all over it. Dane Morris brings all his cypher ripping Team Supreme cred with him to the mainstream stage with his biggest release, to date.
Today's premiere, "June 2nd," featuring the work of fellow LA mainstay King Henry, takes subdued smooth jazz guitar licks into the bedroom with glockenspiel accents and some tasteful whistling. Brooding and contemplative, it's not rage rage rage all day for the thoughtful producer. Morris knows how to work the heartstrings, like his recent tour mates Djemba Djemba and Mr. Carmack.
To celebrate the album's release, Great Dane hits Cervantes in Denver on Tuesday, and the infamous Low End Theory in LA on Wednesday. The big dog is ready for the spotlight.
