Mysterious Brisbane DJ Doodis is releasing his standout new EP, “Hypnotic Dreams”
In the beginning was the DJ, and the DJ created the beat, and the beat was good. This is the closing line of Brisbane digital music artist Doodis’ official website, the artist sometimes called “the Invisible Doodis,” who is releasing his standout new EP, “Hypnotic Dreams.” He wears this moniker as casually as he does his infamous wardrobe of face masks. More important than his image, however, is his sound – or more properly put – his sounds.
The pieces from “Hypnotic Dreams” are widely varied and appropriate for seemingly disparate emotions. Does the listener feel melancholy? The album has blue tracks for that. Optimistic? Doodis does glad. Lurky? Doodis has creepy tracks, too. His style overall is razor-sharp and clean, with lots of space between the individual loops and beats, not unlike the original innovators of electronica in the United Kingdom, such as MC 900’ Jesus or The Orb.
Regarding his style, Doodis writes, “My music conveys the emotions of everyday people -- overthinking, seriousness, isolation. Everyone struggles with negative emotions; my music helps people raise their energies and manage them.”
The Invisible Doodis, so-called, is so-called for his penchant for creating an illusion for himself using the aforementioned masks. There is debonaire Doodis, resting Doodis, frog Doodis, creepy hoodie Doodis, pervert gentleman Doodis, gas-mask with bouquet Doodis, romantic Doodis (a-la French masquerade), and heavy metal Doodis (a skull hovering above a black jacket). Mystifying and strangely addictive in character, Doodis seems to exist as the embodiment of his music.
As influences he lists godfathers of ambient music, as well as personal favorites: Brian Eno, Robert Fripp, David Byrne, John Cale, John Wardle. His opinion of his music is humble, yet exact. “I compose and take bits of uplofting music from around the world,” he writes, “weaving it into a tapestry that is unique.”
The tapestries he weaves – and there are many – are uniquely wonderful to hear. Every fan of electronic music owes it to himself to give “Hypnotic Dreams” a sit-down listening. Doodis will not be able to stay invisible for long.
