    Rob Dougan (/rɒb duːɡən/; born 1969 in Sydney, Australia), is a genre-blending music composer. Mixing elements of orchestral music, trip hop, and bluesy vocals, his work is tangentially relatable to electronic music. He was known primarily for his breakthrough 1995 single "Clubbed to Death (Kurayamino Variation)", further popularised by 1999's The Matrix soundtrack. "Clubbed to Death" was re-released on his debut album Furious Angels in 2001, seven years after its initial release.

    In 1990, Rob Dougan's friend Rollo brought him from Australia to London. From 1991 to 1995, Dougan was a Producer and remix artist. In 1994 his remixes started charting in the UK. He also released his first single, "Hard Times".

    In 1995, his hit single Clubbed to Death gave him a recognised name in the UK dance club scene. He produced half a dozen remixes of it, including the "Kurayamino Variation". His label Mo' Wax Records was pleased and commissioned the follow-up, "Clubbed to Death 2" (later the bonus track on the album). CTD2 was never released as a single, but appeared on the James Lavelle disc of the 1996 DJ mix compilation album, Cream Live 2.

    "Furious Angels" was not released on Mo' Wax but Dougan eventually released it as a single in 1998 on Rollo's label Cheeky Records. Dougan worked for the following six years, doing remixes and licensing his tracks, in order to self-produce the album which was backed by a full orchestra and a full choir.

    In 1999, his exposure increased dramatically when his "Clubbed To Death (Kurayamino Variation)" was featured on the soundtrack of The Matrix. He has also provided remixes of songs by U2, Moby and Kylie Minogue, and contributed two more tracks to the soundtrack of 2003's Matrix sequel The Matrix Reloaded, Château and Kung Fu (a shortened version of "Furious Angels" made for "The Matrix Reloaded"). The Matrix Reloaded DVD also includes the I'm Not Driving Anymore Instrumental soundtrack on the background movie.
