Premiere: Shall Ocin – Cicada
Maceo Plex protégé Shall Ocin entered the last half of 2017 swinging, with the foundation of his very own Clash Lion imprint whose first release was none other than Maceo himself under his long-lost Maetrik alias. Now, Ocin debuts his own work on his home label in an enticing fashion.
Bounty Hunter offers three mighty tracks that heavily embrace the dark qualities that can emanate from analog sounds. Its opener “Cicada,” which Dancing Astronaut has the pleasure of premiering, is a sinister embodiment of the EP’s aura. Creepy, twinkling samples set at a high octave create a sense of unease, as shaking kicks and deep, humming basslines continue to build this feeling into an explosion of grueling techno that wreaks havoc to all in its path.
“Cicada,” along with the rest of Bounty Hunter, is due for a December 15 release. Pre-order it here.
