Oshi and Baauer drop off long awaited collaboration, ‘Frozen’
Since Oshi‘s emergence on the scene a short time ago, the young UK talent has established himself as a forward-thinking producer who often goes against the grain — a trait that immediately caught the attention of major players like Skrillex, Baauer, and others. If you’re familiar with Baauer’s production style, you’ll recognize an obvious, complementary link to Oshi’s work; a collaboration would be necessary to seal the parallels between the two beat makers. Now, the joint effort has officially materialized on “Frozen,” marking both producers’ first outputs of 2018.
Minimal use of chopped vocal samples and completely free of head-splitting bass drops, Oshi and Baauer proctor an intensely cinematic, futuristic hip-hop/trap hybrid on “Frozen.” Pitched down vocal arrangements and low frequency filters carry the pair’s knocking drum rhythms, as Oshi and his counterpart opt for a fairly reserved progression up until the track’s final break.
