In 2012 Evian Christ, aka Joshua Leary, became one of the years most talked about producers with the release of his free mixtape ‘Kings And Them’, later becoming a critically acclaimed 12” released through Tri Angle Records. ‘Kings And Them’ was an innovative fusion of blasted ambience and icy hip hop beats, which garnered support from artists like Jamie xx, Animal Collective, Actress, Purity Ring (who Evian Christ toured N. America with over the summer), Four Tet and Caribou, as well as rapturous praise from influential radio DJs such as Mary Anne Hobbs, Benji B, and Rob Da Bank. ‘Duga-3’ a heavily conceptual, 20 minute long experimental piece representing Evian Christ at his most abstract. First and foremost it gives listeners an insight into the mind of an artist whose proving to be as unpredictable as he is exciting.
