David Douglas is an Utrecht based electronica producer. He released his debut EP “Royal Horticultural Society” in 2012 and starts 2014 with a brand new single, entitled “Higher”. Higher is the first track of his new full-length album due to release later this year.

Beside David’s work as a musician, he makes a part time living as a video director. Over the years, he has worked on several major television and film productions and he has directed music video’s for artists like Blaudzun, John Coffey, Daniel Beddingfield and for his own track “California Poppy”.

Inspired by the stories of his namesake David Douglas (1799) – a Scottish plant hunter who explored North America collecting seeds of plants and trees unknown to mankind at that time – David (1983) started looking for his own musical roots. The greatness of nature – the sublime mountain landscapes, Icelandic lupine fields, Arctic coastlines, Californian fir forest – invigorate his music.

Xlr8r: ‘‘Utrecht-based producer David Douglas shares more than a name with the 19th century plant-hunting Scotsman; like the Douglas of old, the 20-something beatmaker is invigorated by the greatness of nature, and uses it as his muse when creating rich and atmospheric sounds.”

Beardrock: “Lurching and woozy, the synthesized timbres on ‘California Poppy’ swirl the brain as if it were a great pulsating paint pot. The colours lazily drip through the body and form a puddle of glowing warmth in the pit of the stomach.”

Sonic Router: “Being a fan of making such shaky reasonings and segue ways myself, it makes me smile how the label goes on to talk about how the modern day Douglas is now procuring his own musical seeds and sowing them whilst being inspired by the nature that’s all around him…’‘
