To some it must seem like this young electronic producer came out of nowhere this year but those in the know have been following Emancipator since his first album, Soon It Will Be Cold Enough, at the age of 19 in 2006, released by the highly acknowledged Hydeout Productions label, in Japan. His agile melodies layered over headnodic, immaculately-produced beats captivated fans across the internet and the real world.
Emancipator is Douglas Appling, who is joined by violinist Ilya Goldberg on stage. His music is for fans of Bonobo & Nujabes.
With the release of his newest album,Dusk To Dawn, the music offers listeners a nostalgic return to the soulful integration of organic hip hop and symphonic layers that first captivated his steadily growing audience.

Dusk To Dawn is a journey of spine tingling tracks, where Emancipator a.k.a. Doug Appling and violinist Ilya Goldberg blur the lines of hip-hop, rock and trip-hop with rhythms that ignite the soul. Vibe Magazine
