After producing one of the standout tracks for Ninja’s 20th anniversary boxset and wowing audiences at a variety of 'Ninja XX’ shows, plus appearing on keyboards in Flying Lotus’ band and appearing with a string section at the Royal Albert Hall, Dorian Concept is ready to release his first EP for Ninja Tune.
Intensely intricate and musical, yet supremely soulful, Dorian Concept creates tunes which are simultaneously melancholy, propulsive and uplifting. From the moment the bass drops on "Her Tears Taste Like Pears", through the multi-layered avant-dancehall of "My Face Needs Food", on into the glorious shuffle of "Toe Games Made Her Giggle" before "Thank You All The Time Forever" finishes off in more a more introspective mood, you know that this is a producer to reckon with. Whatever he touches sounds completely and exclusively like himself, a completely developed aesthetic, rather than the zigzagging re-hashes of a hack.
Dorian Concept is a Vienna-based composer and musician, a child pianist who went on to study music composition in Salzburg. He has released a string of extraordinary singles and EPs on Affine Records and Kindred Spirits, most notably the Trilingual Dance Sexperience release in 2009. He is currently one of the most vital artists working in electronic music, his fusion of jazz, electronics and progressive club music is as exciting as it is unique.
