7. Dusk to Dawn

The title track from last year's studio release, the gently glitched mandolin coupled with airy gospel vocals demonstrated this giant leap in production technique and quality. You can hear the evolution from release to release, and it's absolutely staggering.

6. Lionheart

Another classic from his debut release, Soon It Will Be Cold Enough, you can hear the early influences on these chill breaks tunes, but you can also hear that Doug Appling has a very unique signature style, even from the beginning. And he only makes it more and more his own.

5. Good Knight

Emancipator plays around with strings in this one, weaving it around a very Portishead framework. Even in his early stuff, there's a maturity that totally belies the fact that this is a damn teenager creating these beautiful, polished soundscapes. Pretty mindblowing.
