Dusk to Dawn
Dusk to Dawn
Emancipator's albums parallel his growth as an artist: alarmingly well thought out, organic and truly artistic. With a commanding lack of words on the personal journey that occurs as layer after layer of Dusk to Dawn is revealed—and the jazz-fed inspiration of deceased Japanese producer, Nujabes—Emancipator stretches the possibilities and true experience of listening to music. Crisp snares, perfectly placed violin and sublime bass lines make his third a more lively and bright album than anything he's touched before. As he re-enters a token atmospheric trip-hop area the range and potential of Doug Appling is clear. The lush escape Emancipator's albums promise is unequaled in this genre. With production this moving, it's a mystery why Emancipator remains a relatively undiscovered prize.
