A lot mo rich and a whole lot smarter

LOTS of new music.

Featured artist of the day: Emancipator aka Doug Appling

A lot of us have begun to drink the emancipator cool-aid and therefore, I decided, it was due time to do a little research on this artist. What I found is undoubtedly unique. With his organic new sound flow and silky beat weaving, Doug Appling, has the tendency to put those of us who get swallowed up by certain songs, into a musical trance. At the age of only 19 he released his self-made album Soon It Will Be Cold Enough, which immediately got picked up by well-known and highly esteemed Japanese producer, Nujabes. Not only did the record sell 5,000 copies in the first month, but Appling also landed a Puma label and had one of his songs featured in the Beijing Olympics. On Emancipators new album, "Safe in the Steep Cliffs"-- "Dense layers of choirs, horns, American folk instruments such as the banjo and mandolin, violin and some distinct Asian influences make for a playful yet refined album built out of intricate tracks listeners can enjoy on as many levels as they want."
