A sleeping giant of the electronic music world, Douglas Appling - more commonly known as Emancipator - has quietly established himself as a mainstay in the electronic music scene since the release of his debut album, Soon It Will Be Cold Enough in 2006. Classically-trained as a violinist from an early age, Appling's organic approach to trip-hop and downtempo draws inspiration from a wide range of international cultures and musical genres, culminating in a refreshingly authentic brand of electronic music that has infiltrated global consciousness.

Originally performing as a solo act, Appling quickly recruited the immensely-talented Ilya Goldberg to perform alongside him during Emancipator's live sets. In 2015, Appling expanded the Emancipator live experience further with the addition of a drummer and a bassist, adding a completely new organic dimension to his live performances. Now known as the Emancipator Ensemble, the talented four-piece is pushing the limits of what it means to be electronic musicians through their compelling, sophisticated performances.

Having released Live In Athens in June, and Dusk to Dawn Remixes - a remix album featuring massively-popular contributions from the likes of ODESZA, Little People, Eliot Lipp, and more - in July, 2015 sees Emancipator making an ambitious reappearance. This fall will mark his official return as he gears up to release his fourth full length LP, entitled Seven Seas, his first studio album in nearly three years. The culmination of over two years of work and countless collaborations, experiences, and live performances, Seven Seas will surely prove to be a defining chapter in the Emancipator legacy.
