Dorian Duvall is Onuinu. He’s been crafting electro pop in Portland, OR for the past few years where the music community has been watching and waiting for this, his first full length album Mirror Gazer. Up til now there’s been a release on an Ape Tapes compliation and a video for the catchy “Ice Palace” replete with kaleidoscopic, melted visuals — directed by Andrew Sloan (Tender Loving Empire).

Dorian, a multi-instrumentalist, wrote and produced the album. Jeremy Sherrer (the Gossip, Dandy Warhols, Hockey) co-produced, recorded/mixed the record and played drums.

Dorian calls the music Disco-Hop and is easy to cite influences like: Yellow Magic Orchestra, Michael Jackson, the Brainfeeder Crew and Stones Throw Records. The giant chorus of opening track “Mirror Gazer,” the 70’s shimmer of “Happy Home,” and the roller rink ready “Always Awkward,” point to his foundation in the disco, power pop and hip hop worlds.

“I was drawn more to guitar when I was a teenager listening to Hendrix and Jazz and then transitioned into more pop music Like the Beatles, Kinks, Zombies.”

“I didn’t really play in very many bands, I jammed with friends, attempted to start a few bands with friends and then decided to make music on my own — I did some early recordings with an acoustic guitar and a Casio. Then I bought my first sampler and synthesizer and with those I started making loops. The early influences with that stuff was all over the place from Eno, Bowie, Madlib, J dilla, Prince, and Jan Hammer.”

    I want in on this show because my New Year’s Resolutions were to see more local music and to dance more, and Onuinu gives me an opportunity to kill two birds with one stone.
