With his forthcoming new EP, The Grip, set for release on November 17 via Chess Club Records, Manchester-via-Brussels producer Oceaán has released a brand new track, entitled Veritas.

“I wanted to explore the duality between lyrical context and conceptual production. Taking influences from many facets of electronic music, my main aim was to investigate the effectiveness of songwriting within the electronic plane – whether it be marrying a lyrical concept with similar tonal aspects (inherently present within the production), and more importantly, creating and displaying disparity between them.” – Oceaán

The Grip EP drops November 17 on Chess Club Records.

MMOTHS – Yago

Following on from his last solo output, 2013’s Diaries EP, and the release of two demos since, Irish producer MMOTHS has today dropped his alluring new single Yago.

“I’ve spent the past twelve months writing this album
yago and santo were both written during that time
although they aren’t a representation of the record itself, they come from the same place
in a way they’re a sign of whats to come x” – Jack Colleran, aka Mmoths.

Hamster Wheel is the riveting new release by Brooklyn three-piece Desert Stars. While the trio of classically-trained violinist Janelle Best, Gregg Giuffré, and Eric Altesleben have in the past shown promise with their style of “melody driven ballad shoegaze”, look to their 2012 debut for further proof, it’s on this release where their talents truly shine.

The group are clearly progressing  their sound, and with the breathlessly frantic and infectiously melodic Hamster Wheel they’ve crafted their finest offering to date.

Dog In The Snow – Concrete Wall

Entitled Concrete Wall, Dog In The Snow have crafted a charming yet subtle pop track that progresses into something irresistibly beautiful as it unravels.

Concrete Wall and Africa are available now through Tidal Wave Sounds. Pick up the single here.
