DORIAN CONCEPT 'J BUYERS', TAKEN FROM HIS FORTHCOMING ALBUM "THE NATURE OF IMITATION"
(OUT 3RD AUG ON BRAINFEEDER)
Dorian Concept’s new single ‘J Buyers’ finds the Vienna-based keyboardist and producer with one eye on the dancefloor, masterfully controlling the chaos at his fingertips as aptly demonstrated on the latest in a string of now legendary live “fooling around” videos where he teased a live version of ‘J Buyers’ on social media (amassing over 50k views in less than 24 hours) ahead
of unveiling his brand new live show at Brainfeeder’s takeover of Sonicmania in Tokyo on
There is a certain element of playfulness and wonder that can be heard in the music of the Viennese-born, self-taught multi-instrumentalist and producer Oliver Thomas Johnson,
aka Dorian Concept.
After being exposed to hip hop in his early teens, he started to experiment with music production software on his parents’ computer at the age of 15. Around the same time, he picked up the piano, electric bass, and soprano saxophone, and since then he has been fascinated by combining the world of music production with the one of instrumental improvisation.
Dorian Concept started his career as a typical “bedroom producer” with a MySpace page in his late teens and enrolled in the University of Applied Sciences in Salzburg to study multi-media art in 2005. Just five years later, he was performing at the Royal Albert Hall with the Cinematic Orchestra, a group he had always admired, at the twentieth anniversary gala of Ninja Tune.
Dorian Concept’s jazz-influenced beat concoctions reap havoc on the dance-floor but never lose their sense of musicality.
“The Nature of Imitation” is out digitally on 3 August, the CD drops on 17 Aug and the vinyl LP follows on 14 September..
