Having first interviewed the exceptionally talented Debian Blak back in 2011, his recent signing to ever-pioneering imprint Audio Doughnuts serves as no surprise. Diverse, sonically unique and remarkably deft on the buttons, Blak's forthcoming EP 'Six Months From Mars' is one that is expected to provide a platform for him to solidify himself as one of the year's standout new producers.
Ahead of it's release, Blak has prepped a free 3-track bootleg EP dedicated to fallen songstress Aaliyah. Thoughtful, sombre in parts but superbly contextualized, each rework is a testament to the subtle complexities of his sound. In fact, think of it more generally as a juxtaposition of complexity and simplicity - Blak's work really sings because he manages to transcend them both. An inspiring listen.
