Born and based out of Paris, Corentin Chantrell, aka Occibel, is a young DJ and producer with previous
releases on Chat Noir Rec, Unanime Records and INSOUND, which illustrates his flair for producing
vibrant, groove-based house tracks laced with enticing minimalism. Occibel's 'Vernal Station' EP sees him
join the London-based crew Tessellate joining the likes of Kylin Tyce, Firmin, Armless Kid, T. Jacques, and
label bosses The Trip as they continue to evolve their superbly curated discography.
'Ghosts On The Rocks' begins with glistening synths fused emphatically with the skippy percussion and
scintillating bass grooves before 'Vernal Station' offers up breakbeat-driven drums that meet luminous,
zappy melodies and dreamy, trance-inducing twinkles with adventurous yet playful tendencies.
On the flip, T. Jacques, who runs Nuances De Nuit, returns to Tessellate with a remix of 'Ghost On The
Rocks'. Aquatic bleeps, tunnelling pads and tripped-out fx provide the essence of this intricate, hypnotic
house cut. Holding Hands and Phone Traxx artist Harry Wills then rounds off this classy EP with a floaty
interpretation of 'Vernal Station' featuring wavering leads, spacey bleeps and breezy sonics that provide
both warmth yet elation.
