Alone In The Light

669i

The most recent EP release from Mark Dobson otherwise known as Ambassadeurs was described in terms such as ‘a labyrinth of tangled synthesis that beats gently at times, and energetically at others’ and ‘a splurge of greatness, a mash of genres’, and ‘Alone In The Light’, much like it’s predecessor ‘Trouble’, featured some blissful, chopped up vocals, eccentric synthlines and busted hip hop beats for a sound which Dobson has come to make his own. In the run up to a debut album in the summer, he’s recently put out a track titled ‘RAIN’ which gently moves away from the usual warmly, colourful musical palette for an exploration into a slightly darker side. The Brighton producer explains ‘I made most of the track out of recording household objects. I set some mics up in my kitchen to record lots of the percussion sounds for example. The idea was I wanted it to have a metallic and industrial sound with loads of reverb like it’s being played out in an empty warehouse’.
