In 2015, UK electro artist Ambassadeurs (aka Mark Dobson) kept very busy with a slew of EPs and the release of his debut album Patterns on his own Lost Tribe Records imprint. Now back in the studio recording his second album, he is dropping the Halos EP in the interim to keep fans of his sound happy. The EP was written during an escape in the autumn from the city to the countryside.
The change of scenery from concrete to wilderness is reflected in the more organic sounds on this 4 tracker, which was written with the bare minimum of equipment to hand, even sampling some old cassettes that were left behind in the cottage where he was staying. The EP explores a more 4/4 sound than his debut album while still retaining the signature aesthetic of Ambassadeurs productions.

Brighton-based artist Ambassadeurs (aka Mark Dobson) is a real craftsman of sound who builds his instrumentals and sample-based tracks with passion. His music is an eclectic mix of genres which draws influences from hip-hop, dub, glitch, jazz and electronica and continues to push the boundaries when it comes to production.
The 24-year-old beatmaker has been quietly amassing a serious following with his early releases bringing him to the attention of UK indie label Jalapeño Records amongst others. Ambassadeurs’ first release for Jalapeño is the brand new Come a Little Closer EP, out since October 10.
Not one to let himself be pigeonholed, Dobson has come up with a genre-defying 5-track EP that mixes lazer-tinged synths, intricate beats and a myriad cut-up samples. For all the fans out there, he has been giving away the song “Rössler”. Stream it below and download it from SoundCloud.
