Dorian Concept Announces New Album, 'Joined Ends' on Ninja Tune / Shares Track "Draft Culture"

In September 2014, Austrian musician and producer Dorian Concept will present his second album Joined Ends, listen to the first track, "Draft Culture".

With layers upon layers of breathtaking chords, weighty bass lines and hypnotic synth phrases - the album sits somewhere between a floating lucid dream and a deep trip into a synaesthetic wonderland.

Whilst working on this album he cut down on touring and distanced himself from his signature club sound to put his mind on what was to become a two year journey. The self-taught keyboarder and multi-instrumentalist also studied Sound Design & Music Production at the Salzburg University of Applied Sciences which helped inform his unique approach to production.

For Joined Ends, he dropped his trademark MicroKorg and started working with new gear, building the album around a Wurlitzer electric piano and a handful of analogue synths. He also weaves his own vocals throughout. Sequencing only the beats, he based his songs on material he recorded live and then sampled. Concept says, “I’ve always been a fan of reduction, so working with analogue gear was a way for me to put my focus back on playing. It feels like my first musical cycle is closing and the start of a new one.

Joined Ends brings the feeling of the artist at his most free.

Joined Ends released 22 September on LP, CD and download -
