Many marked Dorian Concept as one of the most promising beat producers of 2008, and now at beginning of 2009 'When Planets Explode' finally drops. But who is this beat professor?
It all started around 18 years ago when the Austrian Dorian Concept begins his piano lessons and within a few years masters the synthesizer like no other. His home recorded movie on which he displays some of his skills gets over 200.000 views!
Within a matter of time the international hip hop scene scopes this fairly young producer. Unofficial remixes emerge and sightings of live performances by a talented producer who completely tears up the microkorg start to grow rapidly.
When Planets Explode is the debut-LP of Dorian Concept containing a broad range of individual productions who each have their own story to tell. Combine them and you'll get a smashing album also containing the Benji B deviation classic 'The Fucking Formula'.
Dorian's influences range from the modal-jazz of Coltrane, the later experiments of ann-arbor Resident Dabrye to the soundscapes of Oval.
Although being labelled as an instrumental beat album, the tracks are everything but loop based. A great amount of improvisation makes every bar unique in its own kind and adds a very special live-feel. On When Planets Explode Dorian Concept tips the borders of Jazz, Funk, Techno and Hiphop after which he leaves you behind with one certainty.. there is a new player in the beat game, which is here to stay for a long time!
For fans of Flying Lotus, Hudson Mohawke, Aphex Twin.

Benji B (BBC 1xtra radio)
Dorian presenting a first full length, beautifully arranged; spanning beats and broken styles through
to classic electronica sounds. warm & fuzzy chord progressions and soundscapes throughout but still
keeping that hump for the clubbb.
Hudson Mohawke (WARP)

Mary Anne Hobbs (BBC Radio 1)
This genius and really kind guy has already blew my CHICO track off,and now he comes with an exploding UFO, with proper style, amazing basses and the most beautiful synth‐playin that reminds me the best Squarepusher,
with Dorian's own groove for sure! Have you ever listen to an artist who can produce a hip hop wonky beat and just after,a huge housey anthem, and you always recognize him? It's Dorian Concept....
One of my best producers this days.

In 2050 Robots took over the music industry , destroyed all musical instruments and banished
humans from making music...Dorian Concept collected all the broken instruments and rewired them
into one mega beat box/synth. He then created an album and sent it back in time. This is that
record.. HEAVY, HEAVY beat music.. made for snapping robot necks. Bangs to death in the club and
sends frequencies resonating into space. Tracks like " The Fucking Formula" hit so hard, it hurts so
good! Hands in the air!! Ten thumbs up.
