Tipped Dublin-based producer/musician, Sal Dulu is today sharing his new single “B” (feat Koncept Jack$on), self-released via his own Duluoz Records – listen here. The new music comes in-tandem with news of his debut album, Xompulse which is set for release on February 19, 2021. “B” comes off the back of last month's Line of Best Fit and NTS Radio-tipped release, "Alien Boy 96".

Stylistically, this new track finds Sal Dulu delving into downtempo hip-hop, sculpting a bed of rich aesthetics and dusty electronic tones with the tipped Richmond, VA-based artist, Koncept Jack$on layering his vocals over the top.

The new run of music from Sal Dulu, marks his first releases of the year following previous support from The Observer, Resident Advisor, Okay Player and more. Sonically, they leave off from where his earlier music took us, once again finding Sal Dulu demonstrate his versatility as a producer, fusing together different styles to present something which is at once cinematic and also intimate. . Thematically, the forthcoming collection deals with dreamscapes and liminal places, as well as tackling fragmented memories. "B" marks one of a number of collaborations on the new record with additional features coming from the Pitchfork/Stereogum-tipped Fly Anakin (Mutant Academy) and Atlanta, Georgia-based staHHr.

Speaking about the album, Sal Dulu says: "The album comprises fragments of aural and visual memories and assimilates these in a series of memory-based songs or dreams. The album can essentially be described as moving through a dreamscape."

Recorded between London and his home studio in Dublin, this new music adds to Sal Dulu's previous collection of songs that demonstrate his creative process from several angles. Exorcising an array of genres, everything from jazz, to classical, ambient and hip-hop, and ideas that he’s worked with over the last twelve months – largely throughout the nocturnal hours – since summer 2019, Xompulse is a distinctly soothing trip through memory with each track evocative of a different playback.
