Sometimes the best things happen on the spur of the moment, and so it is with
Dopedemand feat. Ewan Hoozami - Indigo Skyfold EP.
When Dopedemand (AKA Phil Nixon) was approached by Ewan Hoozami (AKA Adam Hignell) to commission some artwork for a new project, neither could have predicted they'd end up penning an entire EP together... or that it would come out sounding so fresh! Evocative of Golden Era Hip-Hop, Balearic Electronica and Disco, the 6-track EP has an undeniably soulful sound, while Ewan Hoozami's raps give it a refreshingly unpretentious, mature, British flavour.
The EP's lead single, Ride On, reminisces over Ewan Hoozami's skateboarding past... Weed, friends, sunshine and skateboards feature prominently, with a few nods to legendary landmarks from his hometown of Bristol. Across the EP, Dopedemand's unfussy production sounds a world away from the over-polished efforts of many contemporaries - as you'd expect from a self-confessed old-schooler - and the results are an accomplished body of work with the subtle class that comes from a veteran's touch.
Dopedemand is a veteran Composer, Remixer and Producer / Graphic Artist hailing from Sunderland. Releasing work on Indie labels. Phil also composes unique videogame Soundtracks and has been known do the occasional remix.
