The intimate music of Den-Mate—the latest project from DCbased songwriter/producer Jules Hale—is arresting, like peering into a funhouse mirror. Her sparse, dreamy songs reflect and distort private nighttime thoughts of desperation and isolation, transforming abstract fears into throbbing bass lines and static-washed riffs. Drawing a bridge from haunting pop and the exciting world of progressive electronica, Den-Mate brings a new style for adventurous listeners.
"Where Den-Mate was marked by variety — ranging from songs built off pulsating dance beats and aggressive guitars to minimalist reflections centered on foreboding synthesizers and Hale's expressive voice — Entropii displays a sharpening of Hale's production skills and zeroes in on the darker, denser side of Den-Mate's sound." - Marissa Lorusso, NPR
"What’s clear is there is something brewing in the depths of den-mate’s work. It’s something that feels entirely from another planet all together. It wants you to dance." Sophie Kemp, Impose
