Alternative hip hop artist BAD MATH returns with a sonically melodic new single ‘Oceans’.
Showcasing his vast skills, BAD MATH takes a more unique approach to this single, using the atmosphere around him to create a spacey, out-of-body experience.
Filled with rich grooves, lush textures and smooth vocals from singer Nina run throughout, ‘Oceans’ demonstrates his incredible ability for creating undeniable timeless static-driven music.
In the grounds of this incredible musician’s haven, BAD MATH found tranquillity and inspiration amongst the surrounding oceans and sprawling seaside, harnessing the creative atmosphere that hangs in the ether.
On the single BAD MATH said, “This track is an ode to the ocean. It began with lazy, distorted, rhode chords that I thought had a ‘surf’ quality to them. Right then at the moment, I had the title of the track,”
“Building the rest of the song was such an organic process when I imagined ocean waves crashing against rocks. When I added the tribal percussion everything seemed to fall into place. I knew it needed the sounds of the ocean sampled in strategic places. Dim enough that it subliminally takes you to this place I envisioned,”
The single was mixed and mastered by Oliver Dibley. BAD MATH’s recent release ‘Dead Jokers’ featuring Viking N3 sees BAD MATH unleash his first batch of new musical offerings. With ‘Dead Jokers’ receiving love from tastemakers across the globe.
