World Famous Productions presents Emancipator with Little People and Odesza!
Emancipator is Douglas Appling, who is joined in the live setting by Violinist Ilya Goldberg. To some, it must seem like this young electronic producer came out of nowhere this year, but those in the know have been following Emancipator since he self-released his first album, “Soon It Will Be Cold Enough,” at the age of 19 in 2006. His agile melodies layered over headnodic, immaculately-produced beats captivated fans across the internet and across the world. “Soon It Will Be Cold Enough” was picked up by Japanese super-producer Nujabes, pressed in Japan and sold 5,000 copies in the first six months. Emancipator landed a Puma sponsorship, gave an interview to Rolling Stone Japan, and even had his song “Maps” played at the Bejing Olympics. His latest album “Safe In The Steep Cliffs” blends new instrumentation and organic samples with the signature Emancipator style of clean production, silky melodies and addictive drums. Dense layers of choirs, horns, American folk instruments such as the banjo and mandolin, violin and some distinct Asian influences make for a playful but refined album built out of intricate tracks listeners can enjoy on as many levels as they want. Dance to it, chill out to it, immerse your mind in it.
Little People is the nom-de-guerre of Anglo-Swiss producer Laurent Clerc. Quirky and charming, as their name suggests, Little People inhabit the often earnest world of instrumental hip-hop, but instill it with a little fun and a dash of personality. Downtempo electronic music that’s part beats, bleeps and real live instrumentation. The requisite beats are all in the right place, but it’s their choice of samples and sheer musicality that makes them stand out.
ODESZA is a production duo made up of Harrison Mills (Catacombkid) and Clayton Knight (BeachesBeaches) based out of the Pacific North West, United States. They met their senior year of college and decided to spend the summer as recent graduates collaborating on an album. On September 5th, 2012 they self-released a free LP entitled “Summer’s Gone”, creating a delicate balance between dreamy sun trickled melodies, glitched out vocals, crunchy drums and large sweeping basslines.
