Part of a not merely growing but booming trade in hyper-talented SoundCloud-based beatmaker-musician-producer combinations, dojo. emerges as one of the most solid investments around: put the time in and you'll be virtually addicted to this Canadian musicmaker's sound, combining trap-themed beats and electrifying synths. There are just under thirty tracks on his SoundCloud at the moment, but I've gone for some of the more recent morsels of music to whet your appetite and introduce you to the breakneck-delicious world of dojo.

What's so good about it? The first thing that springs to mind is the seemingly effortless power of dynamics. Simply put, it's the differences between loud and quiet, slow and fast, and how dojo utilises these moments to get the most out of a song. 'Do I Wanna Know?', taking inspiration and samples from a cover of the Arctic Monkeys track by Kim Vallido, illustrates this well; just after the intro, this track explodes and hits you with a wall of synth, the virtual silence beforehand a springboard from which the music rockets into glorious, ear-satisfying loudness. Elsewhere, other more naturalistic found sounds – like a car ignition, a text being received on an iPhone, birdsong – pervade these slices of quiet, texturising and injecting interest into these "pre-drop" moments.

The music's ability to turn up and down with instantaneous effect, equally ushering you into an intricately decorated passage of chill as much as cannonballing into this tranquility like a pool party hero, is at the heart of dojo.'s sound. 'Sans Cesse', as much as it feels as if it's going to stay a menagerie of sumptuous percussion, is a very good example of this – before long the time for steppe-wide synth chords is upon the song. Take this ongoing theme, add it to the smooth, surgically clean production, and the result is track after track of expansive, delicious sound – listening, for instance, to his latest lounge-leaning track 'Champagne Wednesdays' is a fully immersive experience; from the unpredictable piano chords at the start way down to dojo.'s easy elastic control of the mountainous synths later on, you're there, right in the track.

What these pieces of music represent – whether they're simply corollaries of a love of playing around with dynamics, or if they're signifiers of an over-stimulated generation, or even real representations of the artist's inner battles between tranquility and chaos – is unclear. It might just be that these near-deafening synths hold up a modern mirror to the distorted guitars and lack of clear intent that characterises garage rock bands of yesteryear. Whatever the case, dojo.'s style and sound is an example of some of the best music around today, existing without so much as a bit of radio play or press love – so if you enjoy anything you hear below, make sure you tell someone about it. This stuff can't just live on SoundCloud forever.
