One of Ireland’s most prolific producers Carlton Doom has recently announced his debut EP on UK label Break ‘N’ Pieces, with a notable feature from Irish MC and hip-hop artist EMBY. The EP was originally crafted in 2014, but the Belfast native has reworked and re-birthed the tracks into an explosion of oceanic layers and thought provoking soundscapes.
Carlton Doom evokes legendary status when it comes to modern day producers from the isle of Ireland. First appearing to our sound systems under his previous and for the most part unknown monarch Unknown with fellow Irish trailblazer Gemma Dunleavy. Since the birth of his Carlton Doom alias he has released music on some of dance music’s most desired labels including Hypercolour, Lobster Theremin, Hotflush and more, giving the Belfast native a stellar CV of gritty bass heavy cuts.
The genre-merging producer has become synonymous with experimenting in different styles, mood and colours, while still portraying a somewhat identifiable sound, through warping synth lines and funked up broken rhythms.
Carlton’s debut on Breaks ‘N’ Pieces see’s the producer go down the rabbit hole of past project’s and dive into deep and submerged kaleidoscopic atmosphere’s, equipped with deep and scathing pads, drifting melodies and cavernous sub bass. The EP finishes with flair as EMBY features with a sentimental tale of life elsewhere. This is a deeper trip through the musical prowess of Carlton Doom, and a beautiful collection of music from one of Ireland’s most celebrated new-age dance music producers.
