Portland-based producer oatmello comes through with a brief but great new EP titled myst isle with fellow producer ØDYSSEE. As described on their Bandcamp, the tape “is a collection that brings to mind the ambience of a mysterious beach on a tiny island in the Caribbean.”
The smooth synths and keys on the first track “morning” features incredible bass-heavy grooves and an infectious beat. The whole project is full of lush and lavish moments, featuring keys, guitar and bass-driven grooves that provide for ethereal, angelic listens. The atmosphere and thumping claps on “refuge” is an example of this, as the moody aura of the track itself shines through. The more aggressive energy on “gold coast” features a more dynamic beat, though it’s complemented by sweet synths throughout. The guitar leads on “sand castle” make it a colourful and wonderful end to the project!
Overall, this 7 track project is a beautiful one, showcasing talents from two exciting producers. I hope they continue working together and release some more music! Listen to oatmello’s brand new EP titled myst isle with ØDYSSEE below via Bandcamp and don’t forget to support!
