Los-Angeles based vocalist, producer, and multi-instrumentalist, DOT, has built an eclectic discography of critically acclaimed original productions for herself and artists including SZA, Teri GenderBender, Nora Rothman, and more. Now, having relocated to Valencia, Spain in pursuit of her Master’s degree, the artist has absorbed a wealth of sonic influence from her travels around the world that have been compiled into an upcoming EP titled Atomic Age due June 21st.

Ahead of the project’s full release, the artist real name Kate Ellwanger is revealing a piece of the project with new single “Higher Higher.” A blend of field recordings, digitally synthesized sounds, live instruments, and meticulously-layered vocals, Ellwanger revels in a multi-layered composition featuring her own vocals and production that creates an otherworldly three-minute listen.

“Over the past two years, I downsized a lot of my physical belongings, and have been making music from a backpack-sized recording setup while traveling around the US, Canada, Europe, and North Africa,” explains Ellwanger. “I wanted to challenge myself to make as much music as possible using as few resources as I could, trading a comfortable studio setup for freedom of location. While this has posed a unique set of challenges (mainly around recording engineering and mixing), the experience it has given me has been life-changing.”

Stay tuned for the full release of DOT’s upcoming mixtape, Atomic Age, out June 21 via Unspeakable Records. In the meantime listen to “Higher Higher” below. Enjoy!
