Brainfeeder signee Dorian Concept is releasing an eight-track EP this month, titled ‘The Jitters’.

Comprising outtakes, alternative versions and live reinterpretations from 2018-2020, it’s been inspired by the live performance videos the talented keyboardist regularly posts on his socials.

Dorian Concept says: “The idea for this project came to me when I was sifting through outtakes from my last album ‘The Nature of Imitation’. I always get this weird feeling of dissociation after finishing a record. Tracks I didn’t want to put on the album or sessions I thought were underdeveloped now appeared to me to be the most interesting ones. It feels like these little moments can – when looking back at them with some distance – essentially capture the core of an album.”

“With this record I wanted to highlight the fact that there is often more than just one version of songs that I put out. Next to alternate studio versions, I also love to develop live renditions that also have their own structure, arrangement and feel. Instead of presenting a collection of tracks that didn’t make my last album, I wanted to showcase the moments that created them in the first place: to somehow capture the creative energy and improvisational spark that helps me ultimately to “get there”.”

Martyn described Dorian Concept as “a wicked musician honestly, so talented and a lovely person as well” in our recent Cop or Drop? feature.
