"Ann River, Mn" is the second single from Dorian's Concept's stunning second album, Joined Ends. preceding single "Draft Culture" constituted the visceral, dancefloor oriented, bleeding-edge bass music that made the young Austrian producer's name, then "Ann River, Mn" widens the vista.
Perhaps the perfect encapsulation of Joined Ends' visionary sound - colourful enough to stir up synesthesia in non-sufferers - the song conjures the sense of wonder normally reserved for natural spectacles. A driving, urgently repeated phrase underpins the song, propelling synths that grow in emotive intensity, and vocals by Dorian himself; weaved into the music in a way that's as textural as it is melodic. A perfect entry point to Joined Ends, "Ann River, Mn" drags you in like an audible whirlpool.
