Amsterdam-based producer Villete (aka Anne Korteweg) marks a return to Scissors and Thread, a Brooklyn label run by Francis Harris and Anthony Collins, with a new EP. After her impressive 2016 debut on the label with a 12" Girl Next Door EP, Villete returns to the imprint with seven tracks drawing inspirations from listening to Pauline Anna Strom, Takashi Kokubo, and Actress.

Now here with the new EP Dawn is Mine, we are treated to seven tracks of understated, floating beauty. On her new release she explores the more abstract sides of electronic music. Using a variety of synthesizers, she creates rich and lush sounding structures that continuously bend and flow loosely. Opener "Penrose Stairs" sets the tone with gentle arpeggiated synths creating a warm, fuzzy atmosphere - a combination further explored in Midnight Arp later into the mini-album. The title track "Dawn Is Mine" uncovers a low bass throb mixed with dubbed out effects and textures, while "Lilac" emits an ethereal, woozy atmosphere, with lush pads, choral textures and blissful melodic motifs. "Myst" also luxuriates in hazy pads before a slo-mo groove emerges to carry the track towards the edge of the dancefloor. If "Myst" flirts with the idea of dancing, "Show Me" dives right in - an exquisite slice of deep, outsider house with a psychedelic twist. Winding the release down with "Wild Things" - a beat-less vignette of synths engaged in an melodic interplay of chimes and tones.
