Martin Dosh has been making independent music out of his basement in Minneapolis, and around the world, for 20 years. He first came to acclaim with his self titled debut on Anticon in 2003. As he continued making Dosh records, of which there are many, he also joined forces with Andrew Bird, whom he played and recorded with from 2005-2014. His live performances are often solo, combining drums, samplers, synths and Rhodes. One of the earliest pioneers of live looping, he continues to record and perform, layering melodies and drones over acoustic and electronic beats. His latest LP, Tomorrow 1972, features Jeff Parker, and Dan Bitney (Tortoise), Bird, Mike Lewis (Bon Iver), Tobacco, and many others. He has opened shows for the likes of Sylvan Esso, Tune-Yards, Black Moth Super Rainbow, to name just a few. His music is hard to pin down: a genre-less, percussive hybrid of electronic, hip-hop and jazz.
