Spanish DJ and producer Dosem releases 'Megacities', the second single off his upcoming album ‘Dream Decoder’, which is out 25 September. A driving club track, it may be familiar to some as a staple in Dosem's sets. Building on the sound of 'Tower', out opens with a filtered riff that soon gives way to deep rhythmic drums.
Supported by the likes of Joris Voorn, Maceo Plex, Camelphat, Gorgon City and Solomun and supported on stations like BBC Radio 1, Triple J, and KCRW, Dosem aims to build a reputation as one of Spain’s premier dance producers.
With releases on Anjunadeep, Toolroom, John Digweed’s Bedrock, and his own imprint Houstrike, he’s apparently headlined Boiler Room in Catalonia and recently performed at Sonar, Ultra Miami, FNGRS CRSSD, Tomorrowland, Printworks London, and ADE, to name a few.
‘Dream Decoder’ features 15 new tracks of atmospheric, driving house and techno, with delicate textures and progressions rooted in modular synthesis throughout the album.
Dosem: "I have always found the world of dreams a fascinating subject. Not only have they had a strong impact in my life, but they have also served as a powerful creative tool in my career. During these most recent years, I dedicated myself to keeping a small journal to remember them and to use it as inspiration for my music. At first, they seemed like abstract stories with no connection between them, but little by little, I began to find a code that linked everything…
“In recent years, I became interested in the practice of lucid dreaming. This technique took on particular relevance during my various stays in Tokyo - a place that has always transmitted to me that beautiful metaphor between dreams and reality. I came up with the idea of making an audiovisual tribute to this wonderful city. So I started taking photos of its streets and its architecture, which at some point, served also as a gateway for those dream experiences. In this way, each song represents a dream, an album made of stories between this world and other worlds. A journey that tries to decode the dialogue between the conscious and the unconscious through music."
