los angeles based up-and-comer oxóssi excels in utilizing his lifelong exposure to a diverse range of music, which has allowed him to successfully craft his highly eclectic, ambient and bass heavy style; one that blends his deeply rooted musical upbringing with his own creative individuality. his atmospheric and unconventional take on raw bass music production enables his listeners to be transported beyond the music itself into different mental spaces, facilitating a form of meditation on music. with releases already on banana stand sound (bss001), crucial recordings (crucial005) and silent motion (smv001), oxóssi is well on his way to infecting the underground with his unique musical personality.
oxóssi is making a valiant return to sleeper’s crucial recordings imprint for his newest release, crucial011. this blistering, four-track ep sees the rising bass music artist shattering genre boundaries and abandoning stylistic expectations with its unorthodox, yet equally infectious and highly volatile grooves. oxóssi’s crucial011 boasts mercurial melodies jam packed with avant-garde moods, undeniably fresh attitudes and energetic, forward momentum; forcing listeners to rethink what they’ve come to know about bass music. while “escher” and “fall of mevia” deliver relentless, dynamic and vivacious beats to crucial011, “nightmares” and “&” add a much darker, more jarring tone to the overall personality of the release, resulting in a collection that’s as multifaceted and complex as it is innovative and powerful.
