Adelaide-based producer, Oisima, is a too-hidden talent. His latest EP Dusk Til Dawn is a kaleidoscope of lush synth-based beats, velvety vocals and an incredible saxophone that together make the kind of music I can only really describe as an eyes-shut-jaw-open experience. Aptly titled, the music simmers with nighttime emotion, and somehow evokes the feeling you get walking through deserted dusky streets until the warm melodies of dawn.
Signed to the Berlin label Herbede Records, with a full-length release on the way, it looks like this artist is going from well-deserved strength to strength. The cover of the EP is even designed by ACCLAIM’s own Joel VDK. We catch up with Anth for a few words about the release – and a very recommended download below.
