The Oceaan EP

Limited 12" with Download. Chess Club unleash the debut EP from one of the UKs most exciting new artists and producers, Oceaan. The EP is a unique sonic stratosphere of electronica, R'n'B and pop. Bounding seamlessly through textured rhythms, maximalist synth sounds and beautifully understated vocal lines the EP is set to bring Oceaán's work out of the darkness and deservedly into the light. Harking to his well-travelled background - born in Brussels, spending the formative years of his life in Belgium and Denmark before relocating to Manchester - his debut EP is set to broaden the excitement around his work even further. Beaming with a sonic diversity befitting of Europe's tireless electronic landscape, the EP engulfs the dancefloor romanticism of 'Need U' with breathtaking new twists and turns. The subtlety of touch in opener 'Turned Away' gives way to a pulsating modernist take on pop with 'To Lose' as Oceaán's effortless production skills climax in triumph with the pop sheen of 'Your Side'.
