Emancipator Shares Dreamy Downtempo Remix of Manic Focus’ “Stochastic Resonance” Ft. Statik

Oregon’s own Emancipator never fails to impress us with his characteristically serene signature. With his classically trained background and a healthy 12 years honing his production style, he consistently stuns with dynamic releases combining glitchy, downtempo beats and velvet-smooth instrumentals such as violins, guitars and more. This style and a wide range of global influences came to life on Baralku, Emancipator’s most recent project that we had the pleasure of premiering the title track off of.

Today Emancipator follows up that album with a remix of Manic Focus’ dreamy “Stochastic Resonance” feat. Statik. Although he maintains that undeniably chill atmosphere Manic Focus created on the original, he takes things in a trippier, psychedelic-esque direction with other worldly chords, shuffling percussion and one of the best uses of scratching that we’ve heard in a while. It would be nearly impossible to describe each of the moving parts of this remix, from the alien breakdown mid-track to the subtle use of vocals, so it’s best you just take a listen down below to get the full effect. Enjoy!

Emancipator Delivers Must Hear New 14-Track Album 'Baralku'

Emancipator is someone who never disappoints. For years, the talented artist has been behind some of our favorite instrumentals and once again proves he’s a force to be reckoned with on his latest project, the 14-track album titled Baralku.

We recently had the opportunity to premiere the title track off this album and have been patiently awaiting the full project. Now Emancipator’s fifth studio album has arrived via his own label Loci Records and it’s just what we wanted to hear from the veteran. Emancipator’s sound is always evolving and this latest release is no different. He always seems to be able to capture a mystical, calming quality in each of his songs as he effortlessly combines layers of instrumentation. Here he expertly blends organic instrumentation and electronic productions in a ways that compliment each other so well. He’s incorporated many different elements ranging from middle eastern strings to hip-hop percussion, glitchy vocal chops and everything between. Enjoy!

For years, veteran producer Emancipator (Doug Appling) has impressed us time and time again with his unique instrumentals. Today we’re incredibly excited to be premiering his latest single “Baralku,” which is both the title track and intro of his fifth full-length LP due Nov. 17 via his own label, Loci Records. The classically trained artist has a knack for crafting some of the smoothest releases  out there and we couldn’t be more excited for his project around the corner.

Emancipator’s forthcoming album is the first original music he’s released since 2015’s Seven Seas and is shaping up to be an amazing project. We previously heard his singles “Goodness” and “Ghost Pong” that perfectly captured the Emancipator sound we’ve loved over the years. There’s a mystical, calming quality about his music that always hits just right, and this new track is no different. Emancipator combines layers of instrumentation together in a way that’s unique to his productions. “Baralku” is a perfect intro track to the album as he blends strings, guitar, crisp percussion and atmospheric electronic productions that compliment each other effortlessly and will undoubtedly lift your spirits while calming you at the same time. 

On top of this, Emancipator will be setting out on the Baralku tour early 2018 with his ensemble. I was lucky enough to catch the show at Red Rocks, and highly recommend seeing this live as Emancipator alongside a full band is a special experience. Tickets go on sale here on Friday 10/27 at 10AM local time (see dates below). Enjoy!
