SINGLE // Ambassadeurs :: “Duke Red”

Great news coming from Brighton-based producer Mark Dobson, aka Ambassadeurs.  His upcoming, yet-to-be-named album is fast approaching, and “Duke Red” (along with last week’s video release for “M.O.P.E.”, see below) is previewing just what is to be expected.

Ambassadeurs :: Duke Red

We know exactly what to expect: even today, six months after its release, “Rössler” is still a reliably relevant track that absolutely strikes a chord with Boulder’s taste for sweet, glitchy bass jams.  It’s equally capable to hold it down during a living room smoke session or in the midst of a rowdy party bus (we’ll personally vouch for the latter).  Both of his previous EP releases speak volumes about Dobson’s talents: “Rössler” is a free download from the Come A Little Closer EP is available to buy from Jalapeno Records, and Ambassadeurs’ self-titled EP is available to buy on Bandcamp.

So we must celebrate this free track and the possibilities of Ambassadeurs‘ future sound.  “Duke Red” brings pitched R&B sampling and 8-bit arpeggios to that sweet spot between speaker-blasting low-end and smooth percussive flow.  Effortlessly fly, continually classy.

Here’s the video for “M.O.P.E.” that adds window-seat hallucinations on board the soul plane.
