One-man music project from Portugal. The man behind it has developed a passion for dark, melancholic and atmospheric beats.
He likes experimenting with downtempo, trip hop, dub, illbient and hip hop, drawing greatly from an eclectic influence of other music genres as diverse as neoclassical, jazz, folk, ambient, dark ambient, world and industrial, to name a few. He isn’t afraid to deliver unorthodox music structures with contrasting transitions, as well as having little to no regard for the so-called “music industry standards”.
The project started in 2012 with the aim of providing deep and introspective music, opposed to the plethora of danceable and pop-driven material that became predominant within the hip hop culture since the early 00’s. Instead, the return to the “boom bap” drum patterns with gritty, pronounced hardcore snares and kick drums, so typical of the early 90’s, is the privileged drumming style for some of Undogmatic’s beats.
