A sleeping giant of the electronic music world,
Douglas Appling - more commonly known as Emancipator - has quietly established
himself as a mainstay in the electronic music scene since the release of his
debut album, Soon It Will Be Cold Enough in 2006.
Classically-trained as a violinist from an early age, Appling's organic
approach to electronic music production draws inspiration from a wide range of
international cultures and musical genres, culminating in a refreshingly
authentic brand of electronic music that has infiltrated
2015 was a busy year having released Live In Athens in
June, and Dusk to Dawn Remixes - a remix album featuring
massively-popular contributions from the likes of ODESZA, Little People, Eliot
Lipp, and more - in July, 2015 and now his first full length album in three
years, Seven Seas. Seven Seas is the product of over two years
of work, collaborations, experiences, and live performances all culminating in
a cohesive collection of songs that solidifies that Emancipator is only getting
better with age.
