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.
