Dokkodo Sounds


Dokkodo Sounds is the moniker of electronic producer, Thomas Trueman. The name derives from a book, The Dokkodo (The Way of Walking Alone), which was written by one of the greatest swordsmen in 1645 Japan, Miyamoto Mushashi. He wrote the book in preparation for his own death and it contains 21 precepts on how to best live your life.

Lo-fi melancholia often wraps itself around beats, ambience and ethnic samples, inviting the listener into foreign landscapes. During live sets, Thomas breaks down his tracks and remixes them into a completely new context which often make you reflect on experiences whilst moving.
