David Douglas’ Spectators of the Universe takes you to a place where the localness matters as much of the sum of everything.
““Spectators Of The Universe” is the new album from Dutch producer/artist/video director David Douglas released via Atomnation Records. Following on from 2014’s “Moon Observations”, Douglas continues to perfect his interstellar sound, taking the listener on a polyrhythmic, technicolour journey through melodic, sun kissed disco and electronic music.”
“Within “Mora Tuga”, RUMTUM creates an experience of deep textured beats using himself as the sample source. Using haunting chants, woodwinds, percussion, guitars and synthesizers he layers sounds that conjure a sort of fog that lingers somewhere off in the distance. Welcome to the rainforest on another planet, where beautifully emotive instrumental compositions head-knod as easy as they thought provoke. Much like his print making and illustration work, RUMTUM’s music can be revisited again and again to find new moments of interest and inspiration.”
