Joined Ends is the second studio album by Austrian electronic artist Dorian Concept, released in October 2014 by NinjaTune Records.

Oliver Thomas Johnson, aka Dorian Concept, has come a long way since fooling around on a MicroKorg, although his style and sound are still just as distinct and captivating

Second album, Joined Ends, sees a departure from the MicroKorg madness and instead opts for a more analogue sound; it is somewhat calmer than his earlier work, paving the way for twelve tracks to explore different soundscapes. It will no doubt go down well with fans of Hudson Mohawke and Flying Lotus, although that’s not really surprising given that Johnson was a touring keyboard player for the latter. 

A dazzling, atmospheric air seems to breathe throughout the album, and tracks like  11.04.2012 sail smoothly with a minimal house-like breeze. Similarly Ann River, Mn, is a track with a constant build,  premium production and depth. Then there are songs like Mint, which explodes euphorically, and even features powerful vocal melodies from Johnson himself. This is another feature that separates Joined Ends from the earlier material, and the vocals act an integral part in the play of melodies, as in Nest Nest, which is even reminiscent of bands like Volcano Choir. 

Draft Culture is one of the album’s most confident tracks with its punchy, grime-like verses, with a sophisticated blend into its exuberant mid-section and understated jazzy chords. The track aptly highlights the thought gone into the album; it's subtly paced, but not afraid to punch you in the face. 

Don’t let Joined Ends pass you by unnoticed; with its perfectly coherent production, it is an exposition of understated but incredibly emotive power, and an outstanding electronic album.

This limited LP on 180 gram heavyweight includes a download of the album and is pressed in Europe.
