Dawn Golden is a solo electronic production and songwriting project helmed by Dexter Tortoriello of Houses.
It was officially started in late 2010 when a series of Bandcamp demos caught Diplo’s attention.
Quickly signed to Mad Decent and Downtown Records, Dawn Golden (formerly Dawn Golden and Rosy Cross) released its first EP, Blow, in April 2011.
Post-Blow, Tortoriello moved from Chicago to Los Angeles and started recording what would become Dawn Golden’s début LP, Still Life, upon which All I Want features.
“I was sharing a studio with Diplo” says Tortoriello of the album. “It brought me out of my own bubble. He would show up fresh off a plane from Brazil with an idea, and in ten minutes I’d go from writing my own songs into working with him on a beat he was about to give to Katy Perry. I learned so much just by being in that studio for the past couple years.”
