    FUCK YES!!!! Thank You for starting this thread. GV might as well pick this guy up now cause everyone will be calling for him in a couple of years.

    "Soon it will be cold enough to build fires" is a masterpiece. Let's get him there this year, before he blows up.

    Yes, it is downtempo which some might classify as "boring", but others would call it "brilliant". I am obviously in the latter group.

    Derivative, but it's better than generic electro act #7. I support this.

    I thought this was gonna be something about me.never mind,carry on...
    I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country. . . . corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed.

    new news...

    EMANCIPATOR TO RELEASE SAFE IN THE STEEP CLIFFS 1/19, WILL TOUR IN SUPPORT

    Emancipator
    Safe In The Steep Cliffs, due out January 19, is the new set of finely-crafted, epic instrumentals from Portland-based electronica/hip hop/downtempo producer Emancipator, and features tight, syncopated percussion, organic melodies and eclectic samples.

    The subtle beatmaster eludes genre classification but will appeal to admirers of DJ Shadow, Bonobo, and Pretty Lights.

    Emancipator played his first live show in July 2009, opening for Bonobo at the Roseland Theater. Since then, he's toured with Bassnectar, drawn crowds at festivals like Trinumeral and *********, and closed out Sound Tribe Sector 9's late night parties in Denver at the request of the band.

    Those in the know have been following Emancipator since he self-released his first album, Soon It Will Be Cold Enough, at the age of 19 in 2006. His agile melodies layered over headnodic, immaculately-produced beats captivated fans across the internet and across the world. Soon It Will Be Cold Enough was picked up by Japanese super-producer Nujabes, pressed in Japan and sold 5,000 copies in the first six months. Emancipator then landed a Puma sponsorship, gave an interview to Rolling Stone Japan, discovered one of his songs was played at the Beijing Olympics (still trying to figure out how that happened) and his song "Shook," a mash up that perfectly mixes Mobb Deep's mighty raps with a haunting track from the Icelandic band Sigur Ros, became the highest-rated song on Hype Machine's Best 50 Songs of 2007, and appeared on Hype Machine as the #2 most popular song in April 2009.

    The new album blends new instrumentation and organic samples with the signature Emancipator style of clean production, silky melodies and addictive drums. Dense layers of choirs, horns, American folk instruments such as the banjo and mandolin, violin and some distinct Asian influences make for a playful but refined album built out of intricate tracks listeners can enjoy on as many levels as they want. Dance to it, chill out to it, immerse your mind in it.

    Downloading Safe In The Steep Cliffs beginning January 19 here.

    Anyone check the new album?

    http://emancipator.bandcamp.com/

    I listned to it once at work, which makes it hard to tell 'cause I can only bump that shit so loud... but I liked it. Similar to the first one. I want to listen to it a little more, and maybe report back.

    Ohhh Yeah and PLEASE add him to the line up. Or to the downtempo dome. That's right everyone I'm pushin for a downtempo dome for the late night chill session one night.
