Founder of the 12k, LINE and Happy labels, Taylor Deupree has been busy the last ten years developing a particular niche in the thick of the current electronic scene. From digital ultra-minimalism to Japanese pop, this composer, graphic artist, and photographer expands upon his influences. Nature, architecture, sculptures, photography, and even interior design are certain sources of inspiration that materialize, nourish, and react within his work. Accentuating a primordial importance to intrinsic concepts concerning the projects he seeks to develop, Deupree internalises his diverse sources before translating them into adapted sounds.
