Hyp 320: Dolenz

Hyp 320: Dolenz

London producer Dolenz is an artist who portrays the present and dwells on the influences of his past. With previous aliases including DJ Solo and Wriggly Scott, Dolenz is the newest persona to cross Neil Andrews’ musical boarder.

In a way a futuristic, Dolenz first came through the mist back in 2015 with an eight-track EP on Sonic Router. Drawing influence from ‘80s breakdance films, science fiction and Eastern sounds, ‘Hysteresis’ arrived in beat tape format and demonstrated Dolenz’ knack for combining hip hop drum work and gritty analog techniques.

Exit Records’ most recent signee, Dolenz latest effort for DBridge’s label, ‘Evesdrop‘, once again sees him in break neck mode, with crunchy percussion and damaging low end treatment operating on half-time scales and working to full effect in both club and solo settings.

With his monthly Infinite Friends show on Balamii and recent mixes for Solid Steel and Dazed, Dolenz is no stranger to the DJ scene. Kindly providing the 320th mix for our series Dolenz causes a ruckus, with a hour of wonky half-time riddims frantically battling to jump out the bag.
