Riding high off the back of his much-lauded ‘Second Mood’ EP on Diversions Music at the beginning of March, French maestro OXIA now teams up with Italian duo Artslaves for an unrelenting follow up package and his second stellar release of 2019.
Out now via Deeperfect Records, the two-track ‘For Real’ Extended Player sees OXIA team up with the Moan Recordings label bosses across both original offerings, in what is a truly formidable debut collaboration between the three in-form producers.
A brooding roller complete with mind-bending synths and warped vocal chops, the title track gets the EP off to a mesmerising start; its layers and textures twisting and amalgamating in perfect symbiosis across the track’s six-minute duration.
On the flip, ‘Over’ places crisp drums and an undulating bassline front and centre, adding delayed spoken-word samples and a marathon second drop to close out the EP in emphatic fashion.
The release comes just three days before OXIA’s remix of John Digweed & Nick Muir’s iconic track Satellite, which is released on May 6 via Bedrock Records.
