London-based artist reworks opening track of his sixth full-length Wasted Space
Having recently returned from his second European tour in support of his sixth full-length, 2018â€™s Wasted Space â€“ the first tour being back in September as a co-headline run with Oakland space-rockers Lumerians â€“ The Oscillation is now sharing a new remix of the albumâ€™s opening track, â€˜Entity.â€™ Clocking in at nearly seven-minutes, Demianâ€™s reworking of â€˜Entityâ€™ sees him take the song â€“ already a malevolent hallucinogenic nightmare â€“ and drag it into even more dark, abrasive and amplified territory.
An ominous soundtrack to a depraved party spiralling out of control at the edge of the universe, â€˜Entity (Moron mix)â€™ is driven by pounding repetitive drums and a warped unrelenting bassline that pulses through a backdrop of far-out synths, random stabs of guitar and the murmur of Demianâ€™s vocals which are so submerged in effects theyâ€™re barely distinguishable. You can check it out below.
Talking about the remix Demian says: â€œI had been listening to quite a lot of Killing Joke when making the album and I think it rubbed off on this track. I wanted to explore the heavier industrial aspects of it and to bring up some of the distorted harmonics and raw guitar noise. I also felt there was quite a moronic, repetitive disco element to the original that I wanted to extend and play with.â€
Consistently forward-thinking in pushing psychelia to the brink, The Oscillationâ€™s sixth album Wasted Space â€“ released back in September 2018 â€“ sees the London-based artist jump between muscular grooves and industrial walls of sound, and moments of sprawling kosmische ambient. If youâ€™re yet to add it to your collection, you can buy the album on vinyl below.
The Oscillation will return to this yearâ€™s Fuzz Club Eindhoven on Aug 23rd & 24th, joining the likes of Iceage, Kikagaku Moyo, The KVB, Night Beats and more.
