#ATM002 'David Douglas - Royal Horticultural Society'
"Royal Horticultural Society is a very impressive debut effort. The concept especially works for an EP as the thematic ideas that permeate throughout the 27 minute journey are never dulled by repetition or are overburdened."

David Douglas (1983) is a Dutch producer of electronic music. David Douglas (1799) was a Scottish plant hunter who explored North America collecting seeds of plants and trees unknown to mankind at that time. Inspired by the Scottish botanist, David from '83 started looking for his own musical seeds. The greatness of nature – the sublime mountain landscapes, Icelandic lupine fields, arctic coastlines, Californian fir forests – invigorate his music.

'Royal Horticultural Society' is David’s debut EP although it sounds like anything other than a debut. 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'.





Xlr8r: ''Utrecht-based producer David Douglas shares more than a name with the 19th century plant-hunting Scotsman; like the Douglas of old, the 20-something beatmaker is invigorated by the greatness of nature, and uses it as his muse when creating rich and atmospheric sounds."

Beardrock: "Lurching and woozy, the synthesized timbres on 'California Poppy' swirl the brain as if it were a great pulsating paint pot. The colours lazily drip through the body and form a puddle of glowing warmth in the pit of the stomach." (4.5/5)

Sonic Router: "Being a fan of making such shaky reasonings and segue ways myself, it makes me smile how the label goes on to talk about how the modern day Douglas is now procuring his own musical seeds and sowing them whilst being inspired by the nature that’s all around him…''
