A labor of love and passion over the course of the past year, ‘Two Hearts’ is a true masterpiece. An eclectic and explorative compilation, Dabin demonstrates his versatility as a producer and treats fans to 11 different creations, flirting with a range of musical genres and styles over the course of the LP.
Kicking off with the stunning title track ‘Two Hearts’, Dabin treats listeners to a soul-soothing cut, which glides along on gentle instrumentals and a silky female vocal piece. Next up is ‘Hold’ Ft. Daniela Andrade, which has already amassed 5 million streams online and become a fan favourite. The third offering, ‘Sanctuary’, switches up the tempo, and brims with ethereal synths and high energy while ‘Hazy’ allows Dabin to show off his impressive knack for live instruments, as he delivers a laid-back and soulful cut, which moves gently over its 3 minute duration. Teaming up with Jenni Potts for ‘What It Was’, Jenni’s lush vocals are paired with jagged synths, resulting in a unique fusion of sounds. Opting for a softer feel, ‘Helium’ Ft. Lexi Norton focuses on her vocals, leading the listener through a emotive monologue with stripped-back percussion. Turning up the temperature with ‘The Fall’, Dabin moves things into a different dimension with a flurry of edgy synths paired with rock-infused instrumentals. Up next is ‘Lilith’, a mammoth collaboration with Apashe & Madi. Dominating the soundscapes over its 5-minute duration, ‘Lilith’ uses industrial synths and futuristic pads to drive the track home. Teaming up with Koda for ‘Worries’, Dabin shifts the mood once more to bring a melancholic feel, experimenting with an indie-rock vibe paired with Dabin’s signature synths. The penultimate track comes in the shape of ‘I Still Feel You’, which blends oriental melodies with upbeat percussion and chopped vocals. Closing the LP with his majestic track ‘You & I’ Ft. Jenna Pemkowski, Dabin’s innate ability to create masterpieces from all over the dance music spectrum shines through with ease.
