Golden Donna is the musical alias of Madison-based electronic artist and Madison, WI-based show promoter Joel Shanahan. Madison’s insular lineage of long-form sonic reducers replenishes and mutates at an impressive clip, so it’s no surprise that the music from one of the city’s freshest next-wave arc welders is a real treat.
The solo soundworld of instrumental synthesizer artisan Golden Donna incorporates a drained rainbow of niche hues into its multiverse: epicly tranced sequencer constructs, smooth-glide R&B solar flares and glittering deep-space drift-symphonies.
The effortless interplay between slick rhythm syrups and more ambient-style body awareness float trips gives Golden Donna’s music an awesomely woozy in-and-out-of-focus feel—a weightless, ghosting motion, like slow-coasting through clouds on codeine on a private jet.
Golden Donna is supported by: N1L, a side – project of sound artist Martins Rokis; true blue weirdo ripper SFTSTPS; djs Jayyce and Olle Holmberg (aka Moon Wheel).
