Studio dedication pays off for drummer/composer with release of latest Ambient EP
Dimitar Dimceski is a man that knows his way around a studio. Aside from his day job as a professional audio engineer, the Macedonian-born musician has been playing drums and percussion for over a decade.
Currently the drummer for the UK punk outfit “Dead on 20,” Dimceski has appeared on three albums for his work behind a drum kit, and spent many years touring with different projects.
“I’ve played in Skopje and all over Macedonia. Also in Bulgaria, Serbia and Croatia as a drummer, as a member of various rock bands.”
And now, as the artist known as Dikital, he’s also been composing and releasing his own Electronica compositions.
The latest EP, “Parallel Universes,” is full of the ethereal melodies and down-tempo rhythms that have made his songs so popular.
The title track is a bright, airy mix of dancing melodies layered atop a shifting, serpentine beat that’s as delicate as it is enchanting. “Long Away,” like many tracks, shows an Eastern influence. The instrumentation takes on exotic flavors easily, blending them into the soundscapes to create something alien yet familiar. “Rain” features Middle-Eastern drums and sitar that flows like incense smoke.
Since its release on September 22, 2012, the album has been gaining praise and attention, and with good reason. “Parallel Universes” twinkles and pulses with otherworldly harmonies, and beats that march forward with inexorable certitude. The slower rhythms give “Parallel Universes” a hypnotic and intoxicating languor as the tracks slink and slide their way out of the speakers and into your mind.
Musically, Dikital draws from a deep well of influences that include artists and bands like Pink Floyd, The Orb, Depeche Mode, Chemical Brothers, Kruder and Dorfmeister, Boards of Canada, F.S.O.L, and The Cinematic Orchestra.
It shows on the album, a glossy package that contains a multitude of textures and sonic layers.
