Oliver Thomas Johnson has been messing around with music since he took piano lessons as a kid, but only after becoming a self-described "pot-smoking teenager" and being introduced to electronic music did he become inspired to start making beats. The bedroom keyboard wizard dropped his debut album, When Planets Explode, earlier this year on Kindred Spirits, but it's the non-album single "Trilingual Dance Sexperience," with its warped hoover synths, hyperactive stop-and-start rhythm, and hijacked B-more beat, that has truly shot Dorian Concept into the stratosphere.
