About the Artist

Greg Jung, operating under the alias Dawn Chorus since 2015, has faced the challenges of writer’s block, self-doubt, and music hiatuses. With the “Parallel Realities” EP, Jung turns a new leaf, embracing the opening of new doors and revealing a new artistic identity through his music. The EP draws inspiration from various genres, including indie, techno, deep house, breakbeat, and ambient downtempo, catering to both dancing and attentive listening audiences. A Path Untold, under the moniker of Daniel Merrill, contributed his expertise in mixing and mastering, providing an added layer of depth to Jung’s sonic creations.

EP Highlights

Track 2, ‘Coastal View’: “Coastal View” immediately captivates with dynamic percussion and a casual buildup of synthesizers, creating anticipation for the main drop. The track seamlessly blends breakbeat and deep house elements, highlighted by an oscillating bass line. As the intensity builds, a tempo shift takes the listener on a journey, complemented by ghostly vocals cutting through the mix. “Coastal View” stands out as a powerful composition, tailor-made for the expansive environment of a large venue.

Track 3, ‘June Radio’: “June Radio” opens with a fantastic introduction, leading to a sweeter drop compared to its predecessor. The upbeat and powerful swing of the percussion sets the energetic tone, while the breakbeat takes the lead in guiding the track. The synthesizer melody assumes a quieter role, contributing to a deeper melodic vibe. Short female vocals add an extra layer of variation and dynamics, creating a rich auditory experience. The seamless fade-out of the outro sets the stage for the next track, showcasing Dawn Chorus’s skillful track arrangement.
