Beats by Beat: Dociyle crafts an interstellar experience with his genre-defying new mix

Words by Sam Howard

Welcome to Beats by Beat, our mix series for electronic music lovers. Head here if you missed the previous Beats by Beat mix, produced by Tangerine.

Taking you to otherworldly places in both audio and visual form, Shannon Mavrik has kicked down the traditional barriers of electronic music with his latest release. The new project, Dociyle, comes from a love of sci-films and games scores, meeting techno, garage, bass and electronic music.

Dociyle is a new sound of production that comes following Mavrik’s contribution to the talented Brisbane-based duo, Penelope Two-Five. The duo managed to nail interweaving live music in techno that featured delicate vocals over the top of stompy and darker beats.

This time round, Mavrik’s new alias is an interstellar experience that is accompanied with a cinematic video production to go along with it.

Dociyle has prepared an out-of-this-world mix featuring hypnotic pads, analogue intros and field recordings for Beat Magazine, and we sat down for a chat about his latest project, the time he smashed his music gear on the way to a gig in Melbourne but still managed to perform a wicked set, as well as his love for expanding the barriers of the electronic music experience.

His latest release can also be found on Bandcamp here or Spotify here.
