Oxia / Tides of Mind (INF0023)
Oxia presents a deeply polished, jazz-glazed party record that flirts with the limits of his creative capacity. He's second full-length doesn't reach too far or high. From the record's whimsical prologue, "premiss", you're immediately introduced to an emotive side of the Grenoble native previously masked behind a history of peak-time beats. While lead vocals and ventures into downtempo are refreshing expeditions, Oxia's talents clearly shine when keeping it deep, melodic and instrumental.
