Fracture & Oceantied
21 June 2019
Fracture is a connoisseur of fine cuisine and hot sauces. When he’s not in the kitchen, he can be found running the Astrophonica label and releasing on pioneering British dance music labels such as Metalheadz and Exit Records. As for the music Fracture makes, it isn’t easily categorisable. You can hear his blend of traditional aesthetics and new sounds in the 2012 underground smash ‘Get Busy’, for dBridge’s Exit Records, his 2013 low slung remix of Digital & Spirit’s ‘Phantom Force’, the hands-in-the-air thrills of 2014’s award winning and cross over ‘Loving Touch’ and 2015’s collaboration with Manchester’s Chimpo on Metalheadz.
Oceantied is the solo electronic project started by Until We Last guitarist Ketan Bahirat and is an exploration of Ketan’s electronic music headspace. Oceantied’s music can ambient, dancey, upbeat or anything in between. His music explores two main sides of the spectrum with downtempo tracks, alongside fast-paced footwork & jungle music. He is set to launch his debut EP on Bangalore based independent label, ‘Consolidate’ in early 2016, a label on which he also launched his latest track ‘Ice & Fire’ in the compilation FRNDS & FMLY ’16 which has been featured on THUMP, Resident Advisor & more. The track was also broadcasted on BBC Asian Network in early February.
