1 Track
Dr Nigel is trance electronica of the IDM sort. Lush harmonies and off-kilter beats juxtaposed over everyday-sounding samples reflect a defined mood. The music
The genre-bending music of Dr Nigel (Neil G Larson) has been dubbed by listeners and reviewers as 'trance-hop meets avant-groove' and 'narrative beat-driven electronica.' Says Larson, "My intent is to write 'heady' music; music that grooves but carries certain psychedelic elements. I try to keep it stable and cohesive, while unpredictable, with "plot" twists and turns, or a subtle morphing of tones such that nothing becomes monotonous. It's soothing music for the ADD generation."
