The tail end of last year saw German electronic music pioneers release a heartfelt album from Krisztian Dobrocsi, a producer with which whom we were not familiar. However, what we stumbled upon when listening was the attention to detail within his sound and the relatability to the release as a whole. He previously featured on the KX compilation previously but "Playback Philosophy" was his first album to date. It embodied a dreamy aesthetic and was packed with fluttering chords, dynamic pads and deep emotion.
The beginning of a new year is a perfect opportunity to draw focus towards musicians who might not receive the same attention as big name artists. Krisztian is a prime example of this and we are delighted to be able to feature him as part of our 'Shine A Light On' series.
