Going from a college basketball shooting guard to one of the scene’s most masterful DJ-producers may seem like a long shot, but it’s a feat Simon Doty has accomplished. The self-taught DJ-producer possesses a profound prowess in engineering and composition, which has led to the significant milestone of releasing his debut album, Universal Language.
After over a decade of single and EP releases, Doty unveiled Universal Language on Anjunadeep on April 28, followed by a world tour featuring over 40 dates. Doty’s debut LP captures his signature sound seamlessly from start to finish displaying edgy analog synths, swirling melodies, and power-packed grooves. Universal Language contains a steady stream of everything we adore about Doty’s production style – a blissful blend of thumping deep house and tantalizing melodic techno. His melodic tunes are fun and danceable but also evoke emotion.
The Canadian artist’s creative journey has earned the ear of foundational influences such as Sasha, Hot Since 82, Joris Voorn, and Carl Cox. Moreover, industry heavyweights such as Pete Tong and Danny Howard have also caught wind of Doty’s enchanting sound, compelling them to support his music on their BBC Radio 1 programs.
Doty began working with Anjunadeep in 2019, starting with his track "Sama." Since then, the relationship has blossomed, resulting in more releases and a stunning performance at the label’s showcases worldwide, including The Brooklyn Mirage, this past July. Last year, Doty started his own label, RECESS, dedicated to signing unique artists and elevating dance music's current and future sounds.
Volaris is a DJ and producer who has meticulously crafted a unique sound, resulting in tracks being released on prominent labels such as Armada, Sola, and John Summit’s Off The Grid. His music has resonated on grand stages, being played at major festivals like Tomorrowland, Creamfields, and EDC Las Vegas. Moreover, global artists including Dom Dolla, John Summit, and Vintage Culture have championed their tracks.
