Montreal producer Doldrums wants to open things up.
Each track from the electronic composer seems to ask a myriad of questions, probing the limits on what he can achieve.
New album 'E s c' accomplishes this with fascinating grace, a full length that engages in an act of perpetual evolution.
Out now, it's a wonderfully creative offering, with Doldrums allowing those digital synapses to smash into fresh areas of abandon.
With a new tour in the offing, Doldrums has sculpted a mix for Clash, a selection he dubs 'The Nu Normal'.
It makes for fantastic listening, a real trip through the outer limits of electronic composition while always offering some sense of emotional resolution.
Doldrums tells Clash...
"Made this mix of freaky jams that have come out in the last year (or are yet to come out) that I’m super psyched about. I tried to pick SONGS as opposed to just dance trax … there are so many sick and unique artists here that I’ve been following for a number of years but I feel are finally fully blossoming, plus trax from newcomers and awesome collaborations from the likes of Toronto’s Above Top Secret - remixed by Lee Paradise (hooded fang / phedre), Belave (Matthew Duffy x Devon Welsh) and this insane collab from MYKKI BLANCO x WIKI (I actually like the original better but I had to put this version on just bc of the WIKI verse)."
Tune in now.
