“Veritas,” the latest single from Manchester’s Oceaán (a.k.a. producer Oliver Ceanis), is a mesmerizing mash of visceral textures, taut rhythms, and clean melodies that walks the fine line between experimental electronic production and r&b. It’s also the first single from the up-and-coming producer’s new The Grip EP (due out on B3SCI on November 17th).
Ceanis explains his inspiration for the new EP by stating:
“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.”
That’s all well and good, but I recommend you just take a listen and see what he’s talking about for yourself:
