Jacques Bon motions through the days early energy of Dawning Light. True to the records title, Bon composed the four tracks for his debut EP on Beats In Space Records in the morning sun, reflecting and refracting the colors of daybreak from his compositions. Burning spheres aside, Bon draws inspiration from his past in Paris, where he slung records at Daphonics and started the record shop Smallville with Pantha Du Prince, and his current life in Hamburg, where he frequently helms the legendary decks at Golden Pudel. Both cities and their scenes offer crucial cues for Bons productions across Dawning Light and past releases for Smallville and Mule Musiq. Beginning with licks from his Juno 106, filtered through the glide of a TB303, and foundational fits of his Roland drum arsenal, Bon embraces simplicity in setup to allow for maximum melody. Opening track Island assembles the palette of Dawning Light, infusing the EP with a warm glow. We Are twinkles like the first blinks of awakening, dusting away nights sleep with golden beams trickled onto tangled bed sheets. Aurora evokes the first rush of the refreshed energy, shaking off yesterday and centering the mind, body, and soul to power through the hours. The records title track bounces with youthful optimism, a fitting end for the four-trackers mission of morning praise.
