Having previously worked as a renowned video director, David Douglas switched his attention to music in 2012, and has since gained a reputation as one of the most expressive and all- encompassing electronica producers around. Both his 2012 ‘Royal Horticultural Society’ EP and his debut album ‘Moon Observations’ were warmly received, gathering support from the likes of Pitchfork, i-D Mag, Electronic Beats, THUMP and XLR8R. Spectators Of The Universe is the new album from the Dutch producer – coming up March 24, 2017. From the sun-kissed disco of album opener ‘Lucine,’ to the groove-laden beats of ‘Highway of Love,’ the album constantly shifts forms. Playing with psychedelic and experimental elements and weaving organic textures alongside more robotic landscapes, highlights include swirling supernova ‘Pay No Mind’ and the ominous yet uplifting poppy doomsday anthem, ‘Last Day On Earth.’
If Moon Observations was an organic, earth-bound collection of songs, Spectators Of The Universe is the funk-filled, technicolour voyage to the stars.
