Canadian DJ and producer Simon Doty shares his highly anticipated debut album ‘Universal Language’, out now on Anjunadeep.
The album follows the release of singles ‘Follow Me’, ‘Have You Ever?’ and ‘Soulflow’, which gained radio support from SiriusXM, KCRW, and BBC Radio 1 presenters Pete Tong and Danny Howard, as well as a host of tastemaking DJs including Gorgon City, Diplo, Solardo and more.
Crafted for the dance floor, Simon’s debut album ‘Universal Language’ gives the audience a taste of the range of musical styles that they can expect to hear Simon play during one of his DJ sets.
“We’re starting to lose the groove in underground dance music. This album is partly about showing people that club music can still be melodic and emotional.” – Simon Doty
‘Universal Language’ features a range of collaborators including American spoken word artist Ursula Rucker, British duo My Friend, singer/songwriter Tailor, UK-based producer and vocalist Artche, British songstress Ruth Royall, and legendary American vocalist Roland Clark. The album also features a memorable remix of ‘Closer’ (feat. Robyn Sherwell) by JODA, the new project from trance legends Darren Tate and Jono Grant, of legendary trio Above & Beyond.
In celebration of the album release, Simon performed a secret DJ set in London, playing the full album live. The DJ set is available to watch now on the Anjunadeep YouTube channel.
