Saturday’s #Downtempo track: Shaun DJ – Knew #Chill

Going for a quiet and gentle weekend. So, it’s a pleasure to welcome back the UK’s Shaun DJ after a long gap with his new track Knew. This is all about the pain of loss and the long recovery.

The track is built upon a guitar rising and falling and around which everything else revolves. There’s beats… eventually. There’s synthetic strings that offer more of an ebb and flow of emotion. There’s a sense of pain and relief. It’s thus not a surprise that Shaun DJ says it’s “A song about everything working out.” The moment when the beats fall away again is one of aching isolation. Despite everything working out that doesn’t eliminate the sadness that’s at the heart of this delicate and beautiful track.
