Thomas Johnson, aka Dorian Concept began as a typical ‘bedroom producer’ from Vienna, but rose to fame through LA’s Beat Scene and homemade YouTube videos. His early digital releases around 2006 received airplay from the likes of Benji B, Giles Peterson and Mary Anne Hobbs. In 2008 he took part in the Red Bull Music Academy, and the following year released his debut album ‘When Planets Explode’ on Kindred Spirits/Nod Navigators. In the years that followed he’s toured heavily around the world, even playing keys in Flying Lotus’ live band alongside.
Three years after his last solo-release, Johnson returned with a new album in 2014 titled ‘Joined Ends’ released on Ninja Tune. After a hectic touring schedule and various guest appearances on numerous compilations, his new LP has been met with appraisal – described as his most ‘deliberate, focused, and liberating work to date.’
