Onuinu is one of the biggest new names on the electronic pop-music front. Hailing from Portland, Oregon, Dorian Duvall — whose moniker is pronounced "on-you-in-you" — is a fresh face with a fresh game. He calls his music "disco-hop," and of all the made-up hyphenated genres he could have picked, it fits pretty well. It's music hipsters from another planet were listening to years before earthbound hipsters were born — simultaneously familiar and otherworldly. You can pick any number of influences out of the cloud when you listen to Duvall's debut album, Mirror Gazer, from jazz to Michael Jackson — you'll find that nothing musical is mutually exclusive. And with that kind of open-minded listening, who knows what sonic plateaus you'll reach? With All Eyes and Votel. 18+.
