D33J has been putting forward some incredible pieces of work lately and his latest is no different. 'Empty Sunset' taken from forthcoming album Gravel is a waves-crashing, chopped-up beats, spliced-sampling kind of sonic patchwork and it works so beautifully that we've had it on repeat all day.

The whole release has quite an interesting story behind it - created during a stint living with 30 members of San Francisco art group The Matrix 1061. Spending all that time in a warehouse space with limited sunlight and endless experimentation - artistic and otherwise has led him to create something truly special and infinitely intriguing.

"It was about self-reflection--trying to replicate the feeling of sitting alone after you get home late, still drunk and on drugs," D33J explains. "You're high and thinking about life and whether these stoned thoughts are even worth anything in the end?"
