exclusive premiere: Ocu – More Roads [Detroit Side]
After his “Say Must Hear” EP released back in 2017 with Giacomo Pellegrino‘s Detroit Side, Italian artist Ocu is back with “More Roads” EP, a jam-packed four-tracker that has the optimum balance of house party and club music while keeping the raw house feeling as the main focus. The material adds even more magic to the vinyl-only series, which previously featured amazing works signed by Enrico Mantini, Dixia Sirong, Bassa Clan, Hansel! and, of course, the venture’s head chef himself.
Ocu‘s passion for deep analogue sounds and grooves is all-consuming. Ever since he was a teenager, his whole life has been devoted to feeling, sharing and shaping hip-rolling house, dub and techno rhythms and textures. With his projects, he wants a more precise mix of musical genres in order to create something that closely approaches to the original sound, with the use of analogue machines as well as external effects, which characterize those particular soundwaves that are shaking the soul while maintaining all the hot flavours. Throughout time, his productions have been dispatched through labels like Body Parts, Wrong State Recordings, CELO Rec, IWW, Arupa and Capodopere, among others.
Our exclusively featured title track “More Roads” concludes the record with a smooth uplifting house vibe, carefully seasoned with engaging vocal samples, intriguing arrangements and enough drive to make anyone start dancing in seconds. The other three cuts are equally providing, with “Fall Down” dropping pure and highly addictive Detroit house vibes, perfect for the dancefloor while the following “Raw Breaks”, just as its title suggests, unleashes a solid broken beat that leads twisted and organic variations as the melody creeps in to seal the deal. B1, “Feel Da Heart” completes the ride with style, laying out a classic uptempo composition that will surely make its way into many playlists worldwide this upcoming summer season.
