Dorian Concept - Just Call Him Fingers

What started as an alternative to playing Mario Kart has exploded into a synthesised melange of samples and wonky beats. Dorian Concept is a 20-something producer from Vienna, Austria. He learned the piano as a child (he's self taught!) and then one day discovered the joys of marijuana. It kind of gave him the 'buzz' he needed to release something visceral from within. Now he's a force not to be reckoned with and somewhat of a YouTube star; his tweeks get over 200,000 hits.

He's debut album 'When Planets Explode' hit shelves March of 2009 and it offers 10 spaced out tracks referencing jazz, hip hop, lounge and electronica.

Catch him if you like: J Dilla, Madlib, Jazzanova & or Vienna's own jazzed-out maestro Joe Zawinul.

March 12 he'll be orchestrating an intimate session at London's Jazz Cafe. So come witness the jazz scales and electric freedom as his fingers hyper-actively skip over the keys. 

It may sound something like this:

I am more than prone to monologues; however, this is solely due to the manner in which they compliment a witty anecdote and their ability to resemble concrete evidence when it is so obviously lacking. I often wish I could emulate that aloof character who coolly stands in the corner smiling mysteriously as if she has a secret. However, I fear resisting the temptation to involve myself in other people’s conflicts and responding through body language rather than verbose banter may come across as contrived and arrogant. And, I am not willing to take that chance.

Ye Faithful
