Meet DORJ, an fresh and exciting artist from Tel Aviv.
DORJ studied composition at the Tel Aviv Academy of Music, but he left after two years to pursue his love of other genres, “I got to the point where I really wanted to learn how to write and compose a classical piece, but I was struggling to find a way to express myself. I left the academy and continued working on my own beats, writing music and experimenting in the studio. I get a lot of inspiration from working with musicians and producers that I appreciate – I’m learning a lot from it, and I’m always into exploring new and interesting collaborations.”
The video for his new track, ‘Thunder’, has been inspired by such motivations. Filmed in London, guerrilla-style, with no filming permission, it sums up DORJ’s music; uninhibited.
His ‘Hipnotized’ EP is released 28 April.
