Doss: Doss

Doss bursts forth into our reality by stepping sideways from one where the 90s boom never ended - an alternate Earth of curved, shining surfaces and strobing colours.

As a producer and singer exploring "Electronica" as a concept, Doss sidestepst the revivalist tag by reaching across genres, from trip hop and trance to liquid drum & bass and Eurodance, and warping them into something simultaneously nostalgic and futuristic. Perhaps what makes her music so vital is that she manages to avoid using her influences as obvious templates. Instead, she uses particular genre tropes as tools in a contemporary, almost EDM, context; a place where the synth melodies of Crystal Waters and Love, Inc. coexist with the slinking shuffle of LTJ Bukem and Fabio. Doss makes bold, emotional pop music that bursts with imagination. But beyond the sheen there is a complex fragility reminding us that glossy fantasies are just as interesting for their subtext..
