Dorian Concept is the moniker of Viennese-born keyboardist and producer Oliver Thomas Johnson. Well-known for his technical chops, improvisational skills, and production talents, he's been a revered electronic musician for the past decade. Tastemakers such as Gilles Peterson, Benji B, and Mary Anne Hobbs were early champions of his genre-blurring sound, he's a Red Bull Music Academy alum, and he's been invited to perform live with The Cinematic Orchestra and Flying Lotus. Following a string of releases on Ninja Tune Records, this past summer he released his third full-length album titled The Nature of Imitation which marked his debut release on Flying Lotus' Brainfeeder label. His exclusive guest DJ mix for Midnight in a Perfect World is a brilliant set that weaves through dizzying kinetic beats, blissful ambient tracks, and captivating experimental rhythms, constantly swerving into unpredictable terrain while remaining cohesively progressive, cerebral, and adventurous throughout.
