Back in the days of #SFDotNet, Nate DAE was an artist I was covering pretty extensively. We had the pleasure of premiering some of his records on the site and shared a friendly relationship with the Jacksonville-based artist.
During my hiatus from the blogosphere, I lost a great number of my correspondence with different artists but there were a couple handfuls whose music I still kept close tabs on despite not actively writing about. Nate was one of those artists – and it’s wild to see where his personal and artistic evolution has taken him over the short number of years since I was first put on to his music.
In 2017, Nate released his first full-length project, the well-recieved CALIFORNIA PSA. And today, Nate DAE is preparing for the release of his sophomore effort, Death By A Woman. Originally scheduled for an October release, the liberation of the project has been delayed but Nate made sure to hold his fans over with the recent release of “Panther”, which serves as the third drop to come in anticipation of the upcoming album.
Featuring smooth production from Sandro that manages to bump while remaining calmingly meditative, “Panther” is a reflective cut that draws upon solemn, humorless emotion from Nate. The Off the Porch artist fills the instrumentation with a straight forward and sharp delivery, gliding over the beat in a slumped fashion that works beautifully in creating a raw final product.
Death By A Woman is on the way. Hit play on “Panther” below.
