DJ/producer Douglas Appling, aka Emancipator, is hitting the road with his live band, Emancipator Ensemble, for the second leg of their headlining tour called the Mountain of Memory Tour. Appling is preparing to release his sixth studio album, Mountain of Memory (2020), on April 3, and is wasting no time taking his talents on the road to share the new musical offering with his fans across the country.
The second leg of the Emancipator Ensemble 2020 Mountain of Memory Tour will kick off in the month of September and make their way to major metropolitan cities such as Detroit (Tickets), Boston (Tickets), New York (Tickets), Atlanta (Tickets), and more. Presale tickets are currently available for purchase while all tickets go on sale on March 20 (Tickets).
Thus far, Emancipator has released three new singles in support of his upcoming album, Mountain of Memory, the first being "Labyrinth," "Iron Ox," and his latest single "Himalayan." His latest hit off of the upcoming Mountain of Memory LP is a fusion of guitar-driven riffs, futuristic synth pads, harmonious string sections, high-pitched vocal samples, and unorthodox drum sequencing.
The complexities of "Himalayan" display Appling's growth as a producer layering and fusing different live instrumental elements and genres to create an evolutionary musical experience his fanbase is sure to enjoy on the second-leg of his Mountain of Memory Tour.
