Dave Lee & Dormee present to you a song straight from the heart of a young man in high school back in the 1980s, whose passion for this song was not realized until 30 years later. This is a song of hope in a dream for humanity connected through music.

Dave Lee was a high school student in the 1980s and thought of a single title for a song that he carried in his heart for 30 years until he met music producer, Dormee, who would then realize his dream and bring this song of hope to you. "Shooting Stars" is a song of wonder in a fictional world where an astroid collides to earth and with it brings the gift of musical talent to all humans on the planet. In this world, we celebrate our passion for music in an endless night of musical ecstasy and fellowship, performing concerts and festivals, and in a world where every person has a hit song on the radio. This is a fantasy, but music is real and really does connect and bring people together in a common spirit of inspiration and joy. "Shooting Stars" captures that spirit and delivers it to you in a spectacular array of beat pumping action and goose-bump inducing vocals by the extremely talented, Forteller and Ashley Page. Our best wish of this song is for you to just sit back and enjoy the fantastical world incapsulated in this song and to dream your wildest and most inspired dreams.

One Last Time

Released on November 15, 2019.

 

"One Last Time" is a song full of hope, inspiration, and drive. This song is an encapsulation of a desire and light beyond our realm with a sense of spirituality that aspires to be more than the sum of its parts and a hope that goes beyond our reasoning.

 

DORMEE presents to you a track with ambience, synthesis, anticipation, drive, and resolution. This is "One Last Time" to inspire greatness, to inspire goodness, and to inspire a desire to be more than just a listener. It starts off with a futuristic space station ambience and quickly moves into baby-like female vocal clips, syncopated synths, and a piano riff building up to the first drop, driving and determined. After the first drop, we hear the subtle beauty of a simple piano line with the beat and choppy female vocals used in tracks past rising into an arpeggiated piano line that leads into the next build. The second drop hits hard with the arpeggiated piano line driving the harmony. A short interlude comes with a '70s synth leading the way, all culminating into the third drop that will give you chills and then dies down into a bumper beat ending with the same space station ambience that it began with filtering down - the journey of a thousand lives in one song.

French Kiss

Released on July 12, 2019

 

What does a French kiss sound like? It's been said that music is what emotions sound like. DORMEE puts to sound the passion of a French kiss. It's what you might expect if you've ever received one. If not, then imagine and listen.

 

"French Kiss" is a minimalistic synthwave track full of emotional triggers starting with a quote put to music from a 2005 French film that is about finding the courage to love the damaged soul and body that you are. Let's not kid around. We're broken. From love lost to love found, redeeming the time that we have in the present moments is one of the most precious kindnesses we can do for ourselves. DORMEE's "French Kiss" is an expression of love to you, the listening, to help you find yourself and the passion for the affection deep within you. The affection expressed in this piece is one of physical desire, but not just that. So many aspects are in play when you express affection - from a spiritual bond to intimate vulnerability, a French kiss is a beautiful way to express your desire for your partner in life. So if you're curious of what this may sound like, simply listen with open ears and an open heart and mind, close your eyes, and let the sound surround you and engulf you. If not, simply play this track when you're in the mood to kiss that someone special. Not much of a track description because the only way to experience the moment is to listen. This song is for you. Treat it well.

The Secret Beyond

Released on April 26, 2019.

 

This cerebral trip will take you into a world of synthetic music made with haunting frequencies and progressions of sound along with beat pounding action and sweet violin lines grafted finely into the mix. Welcome to "The Secret Beyond."

 

"The Secret Beyond" takes you on a sonic journey into the human mind with all of its complexities and errors in judgement and thought. Beginning with tuning into the frequency of multiple radio waves all talking about the same idea, a spooky and haunting arpeggiating synth melody then enters into those frequencies and takes you into the depths of sound progression and into the subconscious mind if you let it. It drops hard, twice, with the same haunting arpeggiating synth progression, getting ever deeper and deeper into the subconscious mind of belief and imagination where "The Secret Beyond" lies.

Welcome to the Astral Plane

Released on February 22, 2019.

 

"Welcome to the Astral Plane" brings Electro, Indie, Psytrance, and Rock all into one extremely powerful track. Inspired by Muse's "Algorithm," this track takes you on a wild and dark trip into another realm filled with shadows and blinding light.

 

DORMEE executes yet another compelling and driving song in, "Welcome to the Astral Plane." The track begins with an eerie piano motif that builds into a full-on, yet warped, indie rock feel, with Jonny's vocals morphing in and out of the electric vocoder synth. The lyrics are dark and sinister to be sure, yet strangely alluring. There's a slight lift in the sound and then straight away, the verse plows into the first drop with a chest-pounding, hard, bass pulse and kick, which then blossoms into a magnificent, synth-driven melody intermingled with a soprano-like, electronic voice. After the drop, there is a slight interlude of creepy marble sounds supported by the electric bass. Into the second verse, just like the first, all culminating into an even larger drop and synth-driven brilliance with vocals soaring high with the melody and then dropping away. And it's over as soon as it began with the chest-pounding, pulsating bass and kick. Take a breath. The trip is over.

Keepin' It Light (feat. Hemanifezt)

Released on December 7, 2018.

 

"Keepin' It Light" is one of the funnest, party songs you'll ever hear from DORMEE. With swinging, funky Dance and Trap influences in its bubbly beats with the vocals of Hemanifezt, this song will keep the party lively and the partiers on the dance floor.

 

DORMEE is known for his more serious tracks, but "Keepin' It Light" is a true reversal of that showing a bright and bubbly side of his persona. The song is a brilliantly written party track seamlessly stitching Funk, Dance, and Trap into the fiber of the song with a constantly swinging rhythmic tempo incorporated in songs by the likes of Alan Walker. "Keepin' It Light" shows you just how fun experimental songs can be. It starts with a simple beat and synth with piano and subdued vocal clips rising up into full-on party mode with an airhorn and all the elements of an extremely cheerful mix of sound and rhythm. After the party has kicked off, there is a slight pause with a solo synth being featured which then plunges straight into the first verse with Hemanifezt spitting his easy-going and inspiring lyrics in rapid succession. While Hemanifezt is rapping, a swinging and fast, Trap, bass beat is booming underneath accompanied by a syncopated synth, fast high-hats, and a funky, spliced-vocal synth adding that special "it" element that makes this song so attractive. This all crescendoes into another full-on party mode hopping beat. The second verse is smooth with an etherial element giving you a sense that you are floating on air with its light and groovy synth patterns all while Hemanifezt is doing his thing. Next up: another extremely cheerful and bright, party-pumping chorus along with the vocals, "I don't know why they lie. I don't know why they try," giving flack to those who pretend to live the high life, but have virtually nothing. "Keepin' It Light" ends just as it began with a simple beat and synth with piano leaving you with a brilliant sense of so much fun and good-times having come and gone.

In Your Eyes

Released on September 7, 2018. This track is dedicated to Lisa Sifferman.

 

About two months ago from writing this now on September 7, 2018, I went through a break-up with a woman I truly admire. You could call it a summer fling because of the shortness of the relationship. Yet, during that time, I had so much fun and excitement being close with her that it spilled over into my music. "In Your Eyes" is a capturing of that intimacy, fun, and excitement.
As artists, we are encouraged to write from the heart. And although I've focused on making cool songs in the past, even some with deep meaning, I can truly say this song comes from my heart and personal experience.

SLEEvE

Released on August 10, 2018.

 

AC - 3 produces a variety of sounds and styles stemming from the popular '80s genre, new wave, and incorporates dubstep and synth-pop with experimental sounds giving you fresh, new, original songs filled with symbolism and intensity.

 

Notes on, "SLEEvE," by AC - 3

Track 1. Adonai Am: This is a song based on the genre of dubstep mixed with a flavor of modern EDM. It's inspiration comes directly from Adonai - the "I Am" or, God, of the religion known as Christianity. I think of it in terms as an audible metaphor or perhaps a musical representation of the Creator's universal power.

Track 2. Beyond Far: Pure 21st century new wave music. This song deals with modern technology, transhumanism, a duality of uncertainty in knowing whether or not humans are real or if the technology that is slowly morphing into everyday life is our reality. One could consider it as, "spiritual schizophrenia." How do we determine which side of us is the real us, who really made us, and why do we differ so often as humans in our personality traits and actions? Take note of a Star being mentioned in the songs Adonai Am and Beyond Far. It all has a reason.

Track 3. The Star: Ambient experimental. "The Star" is truly cosmic in every way. It's a song based primarily on the wonderment of finding the truth - actually seeing with your own eyes, The Light. In its sublime beauty, the music takes the observer on a journey of joy, amazement, and emotional evolution towards new heights.

Track 4. 5th Age: Experimental EDM. Ancient cultures from all races and timelines throughout human history have referred to ages. Many ancient philosophers believed that life has been born, lived, and died in cycles. As we arrive at the Age of Aquarius, we also come even closer to a new, "5th Age," or fifth time around. The song is descriptive of rebirth, renewal, and hope.

Track 5. SLEEvE: Electronica. The EP's title song is about spiritual schizophrenia or the duality issue that haunts the human psyche. We finally realize that our invention of technology is not our God. Who are we? Why are we here? Where did we come from? Much like bookends, this song returns us to Adonai Am - deciding to believe and give all our love and happiness to the One who made it all possible.
