David Douglas is an Utrecht based electronica producer. He released his debut EP “Royal Horticultural Society” in 2012 and starts 2014 with a brand new single, entitled “Higher”. Higher is the first track of his new full-length album. The release immediately got picked up by Pitchfork and the videoclip premiered last February on ElectronicBeats.net. His music can be described as warm, playful, analog, adventurous, diverse and pure. But most of all as he quotes himself: ‘It’s electronic music for the mind’.
Beside David’s work as a musician, he makes a part time living as a video director. Over the years, he has worked on several major television and film productions and he has directed music video’s for artists like Blaudzun, John Coffey, Daniel Beddingfield and for his own tracks “California Poppy” and "Higher".
Inspired by the stories of his namesake David Douglas (1799) – a Scottish plant hunter who explored North America collecting seeds of plants and trees unknown to mankind at that time – David (1983) started looking for his own musical roots. The greatness of nature – the sublime mountain landscapes, Icelandic lupine fields, Arctic coastlines, Californian fir forest – invigorate his music. His full length album 'Moon Observations' will be released this may on the Berlin based label Atomnation.
