The Sky Opposite

5x

It’s been a while since the ‘When Planets Explode’ debut album by Dorian Concept, but we’ve had a couple of sterling remixes for the likes of Cid Rim and Letherette in the intervening period, and the Austrian producer otherwise known as Oliver Thomas Johnson is set to follow up his ‘Her Tears Taste Like Pears’ EP with the welcome release of the ‘Joined Ends’ full length on Ninja Tune in September. Made over two years whilst studying Sound Design & Music Production at Salzburg University, he’s purposely distanced himself from his signature club sound for something that ‘sits somewhere between a floating lucid dream and a deep trip into a synaesthetic wonderland’. The trusted microKORG has gone in favour of an array of analogue synths and a Wurlitzer electronic piano, and the artist himself says of the album ‘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’.
