Douglas Appling, aka Emancipator, plays the Button Factory on November 13.
Quietly establishing himself as a mainstay of the electronic music scene since debut LP Soon It Will Be Cold enough in 2006. A classically-trained violinist from an early age, his approach draws from a platitude of approaches and worldwide cultures. His latest album, Baralku, came out in November 2017, inspired by the astral 'island' aboriginal people believe to be our spiritual home after death. Fusing hip-hop beats, ambience, world music and a range of genres and classical instrumentation, it's a wonderful, ethereal trip.
