Dude Low has today released his new album titled ‘Ego Trip’ (playlist below). To say it is an original sounding album is an understatement, to say the least. This is a fun album. An album meant to be listened to when you’re feeling, well, low. Each track is signature in it’s own way but, collectively, create that soundtrack to a time in your life that needs a soundtrack. Part lo-fi, all creative, ‘Ego Trip creates a sonic landscape you could easily get lost in. Light a cigarette, let the air in and get a really good cup of coffee and listen to ‘Ego Trip’, preferably on vinyl.
And, with that said, we have an exclusive interview with the mind behind the music himself, Dude Low. We get an in depth look at the making of ‘Ego Trip, the methods behind that original sound, and what’s coming up next for Dude Low and his new band.

About Dude Low
Dude Low, the modern proletarian, is back for 10 tracks with rich sounds that explore his wandering Ego trip. From his headquarters (Rennes), he calls for a journey after a year of solitary therapy, far from his tribe: humans.
Neither too political, nor too fatalistic, Dude Low spits on what annoys him without claiming to know the solution. Through beats that rub up against hip hop, the artist wants to be uncompromising by creating his own artisanal mix ready to swing his left hook in the unbearable gloom of routine, or by enhancing it with a melancholic caress.
Who said romance was dead? Not Dude Low. Life is like a Wes Anderson movie, it all depends on how you perceive it. Gathering momentum from a run of shows in France, Dude Low has wrapped up recording sessions in anticipation of his upcoming album Ego Trip on Fogwood Records due to be released April 2022.
