Boomkat Product Review:
The first installment in the TrebleO Beat Tape series. Domu and Shift have approached several young and exciting beat makers from around the world to put together a collection of interesting hip hop beats for a new project called "A TrebleO Beat Tape". First up is Dorian Concept from Austria who has been recieving worldwide airplay from Benji B after a friend handed him a beat CD at the Red Bull Music Academy. He is also well known for his live shows which consist of super fast live improvisation over the top of his own sublime electronic beats. This release is heavily influenced by a wide range of electronic music styles, from dubstep on "We Smell Plastic" to the more bruk sounding drums of "You Used To Sing Or Are You Used To You Singing". Dorian can turn his hand to anything and his lush chord progressions really make these tracks more than just beats on a tape, this is proper forward thinking music at a hip hop tempo. Fans of Prefuse 73, Flying Lotus, Dabrye and other electronic hip hop producers should really take note of the new guy in town, Dorian Concept.
