Forever diverse. The Brighton-based producer shows us what he’s made of.
Mark Dobson – aka Ambassadeurs – is a guy who likes to make music. That may sound like a pretty simple statement, but after listening to his forthcoming Forever EP, it’s obvious that he isn’t interested in being pigeonholed into a certain genre. A flowing mix of warm vocals, downtempo electronica and field recordings, he is carefully crafting his own unique style with each release. I asked Mark to share some of his influences with Ikimasho! – and his picks are as diverse as the music he produces. Check out his selection – as well as the title track off his new EP – below.
Ambassadeurs Forever EP is released 19 January on Lost Tribe.
