UK-based multi-instrumentalist Dougieto made an official introduction on the airwaves by releasing the live recording of his energetically original single, ‘Phoenix’. If you can imagine what it would sound like if Leftover Crack pulled in Zach de la Rocha for vocals, you’ll get an idea of what is on offer.
With power metal buzzsaw riffs served alongside funky ska-punk staccato rhythms, one thing that Dougieto could never be accused of is being predictable. Phoenix is a progressively adrenalizing exhibition of his instrumental talent that we’re sure will see him go for in 2021 and beyond. With his ability to lay down riffs at blistering speed and seemingly make any genre his plaything, success is almost a given. We can’t wait to hear a mixed and mastered work from him to follow the epic teaser.
