A look at Doshy’s website reveals a rather horrifying flashing .GIF wallpaper, and the decidedly unsubtle, blinding and even offensive nature of it all nicely delineates his music — dude isn’t afraid to be vivacious. Based in Berlin — not exactly the first place you might expect prime grime/dubstep-fusion and toxic Southern bounce to come from — he’s been making music for at least ten years, he’s a self-described lover of “colours,” which comes through in his playful but weighty productions. His earlier releases came on small niche labels like Destpub and his own Robox-Neotech, and his debut for Rwina was essentially a coming-out event, earning lavish praise from FACT and Sonic Router among others, also the big international DJ’s had this one for quite a while in their playlists. Straining italo horror influences on the Goblin-inspired “Suspiria,” it’s at once a stunning and faithful interpolation of unusual tropes into a dubstep template and so well-produced it wouldn’t be any less great even if it weren’t so innovative. High production values, a deeply-ingrained sense of melody, and playful experimentation all make for one hell of a producer. Be on the look-out for his second EP on Amsterdam’s Rwina, expect fresher and on-point music from this German beat maestro.
