The wait is finally over for the release of the latest downtempo EP Sea Sons by prolific musicians in their own right; Thomas Blondet & Steven Rubin. Speaking to the soul without saying a word, Sea Sons is an enigmatic experience that one should absorb whenever they deem fit. With the recent closureEighteenth Street Lounge, an underground electronic club where Blondet had a residency for two decades, the DJ saw it fitting to release an EP inspired by his time there.
Thomas Blondet describes what the EP release means to him, “Sea Sons, to me, is an ode to Eighteenth Street Lounge. While making this album I felt it was something that would be played at ESL. I imagine sitting near the fireplace and sipping on some fine wine on a Saturday evening.”
The other mind to marvel at the direction of this album, would-be musician and fellow collaborator Steven Rubin. Steven brings a tinge of instrumental incorporating rock riffs into the downtempo landscape with finesse. Sea Sons is a collaborative EP where backgrounds collide and form a magical listening experience for all.
Releasing the dark and melancholic EP Fire Divine last year, Nuit Oceãn has now released an extended version of the EP to the public. This edition features two memorable songs ‘Tears’ and ‘Fearless’, which focus on heartbreak and rising up once the tears have dried up as the focal point.
The producer does not tread lightly with his words and brooding soundscapes, and most importantly the chilling vulnerability that is clearly evident in his work. Previously featured on RCRD LBL (read feature) with Fire Divine EP release, we commented: “This EP shows the essence of vulnerability and strength in one breath. It is a work of art that can be interpreted in multiple meanings, but we can all agree that this EP is fragrant and colorful as well as easy on the ears.”
Nuit Oceãn continues to make music with impact and substance with this latest release. Singing about matters of the heart never sounded so visceral with his latest singles ‘Tears’ and ‘Fearless’. Capturing universal themes such as heartbreak and heartache against mesmerizing downtempo notes paints a vivid and heart wrenching picture of what it means to be human.
Music producer Nuit Oceān releases his inspiring EP Fire Divine via ROUGE NEON RECORDS today, just in time for winding down this weekend.
Born with the name Steve Mesmin, Nuit Oceān is a well-traveled French composer, that has roots in the DRC and Algeria. His mother would indulge him by playing the saxophone frequently. These factors would lead him on his own musical journey, and we are so grateful for that.
This EP shows the essence of vulnerability and strength in one breath. It is a work of art that can be interpreted in multiple meanings, but we can all agree that this EP is fragrant and colorful as well as easy on the ears.
Nuit Oceān elaborates on the concept behind the EP: “I always have this “mantra” in my head during the creating and recording process: “When there is nothing left. When you no longer have the strength to move forward. There he is, in each of us… The FIRE DIVINE guides us to a better version of ourselves, towards a brighter future. Let it flow.”
It is official release day for global nomad and music producer Ka Fu, who has just dropped a new single, ‘The Hope Is Open’. This new offering adds to the anticipation of the music producer’s upcoming album Heretic (October 2020), his second album release to date.
Wave Music share, “‘The Hope Is Open’ feels like a light wave that is crashing over you at the same time, Ka Fu’s music is like dynamite waiting to explode.”
Ka Fu adds his thoughts, “This track is about the neverending path of finding your own home. Everyone was born somewhere and that is our physical home but still, our soul is always in search of the place to be connected with. My experience is that it’s all about my internal world and not the pictures around it. For instance, if I’m ready to open my heart to everyone I meet on my way, accepting people as they are without any fears, means that my home is open and it’s everywhere I go. I tried to compose the track as deeply as possible with big bass lines that then are overflowed with another bass elements – all to create the floating feeling of calmness and inspiration at the same time, like in my life – I’m always interested in what comes next.”
