On December 6th, sound artist and producer Dujat will release a five-track EP titled Gongan via First Light Records. Dujat was born in France, raised in China and is now based in Manchester. He not only creates music but studies it as well. He is currently completing a Ph.D. in Electroacoustic Composition. “Gongan’ is rooted in both technical innovation and emotional introspection. Rapid-fire percussion and glitching synths are pulled together in endlessly varied compositions that refuse to sit still as they lurch into new movements, all of which are underpinned by Dujat’s painstaking attention to detail with his production. Live instrumentation and voices are melded with distorted, grain-laden synths until neither is recognizable. Despite the forward-thinking sound design and virtuosic production, ‘Gongan’ retains a human element, with sharp percussive layers offset by swelling ambient pads and delicate fluttering clicks and whirs that build a picture of a complex and well-rounded producer at the heart of the hardware.”
Today we have the pleasure of premiering the track ‘With Him’. Check it out below.
