Why You Need to Listen: Dorian Duvall wasn’t happy with any of the music genres out there, so he invented his own, “disco-hop.” Under the moniker Onuinu (ON-you-IN-you), Duvall brings the genre to life, filling his songs with sultry electro-pop stylings set to a proto-hip hop beat that play like the soundtrack to roller rinks of the future. The multi-instrumentalist also wrote and produced his shoe-gazey debut LP, Mirror Gazer, which is due out September 11.
