For the last decade Portland based electronic music producer and musician Emancipator AKA Doug Appling has been sharing his beautiful ambient beats with audiences in North America and other parts of the world. Coming into the scene strong with his 2006 release Soon It Will Be Cold Enough, Emancipator has built a name for himself as one of the world’s premiere ambient electronic producers. Emancipator’s newest LP release Baralku adds to his already impressive and highly revered repertoire. Coming off of a August 2017 sold out show at the world-renowned 10,000 seat Colorado based venue Red Rocks, Emancipator is excited to announce the release of his newest LP Baralku and a 25 nationwide tour date headline tour kicking off in January 2018.

Emancipator is an expert at combining live instrumentation such as guitar and violin with ambient electronic beats to create beautifully interwoven melodies. Sort of a hidden gem when it comes to the electronic music world, he consistently shows his progress and flair for creating complex, eclectic music that blends together genres such as bossa nova, hip-hop, jazz and world music. Check out Emancipator’s newest track Baralku, the third single and title track of his new LP out November 17th on his own label Loci Records. True to Emancipator’s classic style, Baralku is an ethereal, atmospheric and sophisticated arrangement with a driving drumbeat as its backbone. It achieves a rare feat in that it is able to be both simultaneously uplifting and calming.

Emancipator had this to say about his newest release: “To release a song is both a death and a birth at the same time. The sounds contained in each song have reached the end of their life process. The once shape shifting collage of expression has been crystallized into a final form, no longer kinetic. Yet it exists in a state of permanent potential energy, waiting to be accessed in the form of music, just as the memory of a departed soul will always have the power to move us.”
