The Berlin-based producer will release her debut album through Powershovel Audio next month.
Details of Margaret Dygas' debut album, How Do You Do, have been announced.
The producer, real name Małgorzata Dygasiewicz, is of Polish origin, but grew up in the US before moving on to London at the end of the '90s. It was there that her interest in electronic music began to ossify, although she has found real success these last few years as a resident of Berlin. In addition to her bi-monthly gigs at Panorama Bar, local imprint Contexterrior released Dygas' debut 12-inch, Day After, back in 2007 which has been followed by a small but considered body of work through labels such as Perlon and Non Standard Productions. Earlier this month, Japanese label Powershovel Audio put out a primer for this full-length effort which featured a NSI remix of "Hidden."
How Do You Do is said to be deeply inspired by Peoplewatching, a guide to body language written by controversial British zoologist Desmond Morris. "Each track is based on different emotions," reads the accompanying press release, "each relating to a chapter or idea from the book, that come together as one story. Each title is accompanied by a quote, that illuminates the relationship between the music and book." The package will also come bundled with a 36 page booklet of Dygas' personal photographs which were captured during the time of producing the album.
Musically speaking, Dygas' penchant for dark percussive intricacies with a hint of jazz appear to have carried over to How Do You Do's 11 tracks.
