Description

Dark0 steps up on XL...! Big UK sound on this one. TIP !London producer Dark0 has always created his music as a snapshot, a kind of journal, its sole agenda being to illustrate the thoughts, passions and frustrations of a given time and place. Previously releasing with tastemaker labels Lost Codes and Rinse, the 25-year-old�s debut for XL is the Oceana EP. Oceana describes the unstable relationship Dark0 shares with his environment, narrating the story of his city�s illusions of grandeur, mired by hypocrisy and a false sense of security. Dark0 weaves this narrative into a stunningly warm, sorrowful, yet optimistic sound creating a real cinematic journey for the listener. Dark0, who emerged as the pioneer of melodic, grime-referencing club anthems, breaks away from his previously known sound for his XL debut. Showcasing Dark0�s ease at creating tunneling melodic earworms defined by their punishing percussion and refrain, the Oceana EP journeys through love sick, dark-pop (�Forever�) and total euphoria (�Luka�), before retribution (�Plague�) and ending with �Heal��s redemptive qualities. Having already gained praise from The Fader, i-D, FACT & Resident Advisor (�endlessly listenable�), Dark0�s Oceana EP cements the cult musician as one of the most skilled and revered producers London has today.
