Celebrating his new signing to Monstercat earlier this month, and getting ready for a North American tour this fall, British producer, Ocula, finds himself in a great spot as he closes out 2022. To increase excitement for the young artist, he just released his second single via his new label, entitled “Renaissance.”
Grabbing the listener with intimate beds of synthesizers and an emotional vocal performance by Luke Coulson, “Renaissance” finds an instant home with melodic house enthusiasts. Ocula’s stylistic approach to creating momentum makes the track feel as though we were on a journey from beginning to end- elements being added and taken away without notice. This steady build picks up until about the two minute, forty one second mark, where the producer releases into a glorious pay-off of buzzy synths and driving kicks.
Ocula shared his thoughts on writing “Renaissance,” explaining:
‘Renaissance’ is a special one for me because I slightly doubted my ability to write powerful, moodier songs that reflect the times where I find myself in a negative headspace, but want to transcribe those feelings into music, and I feel “Renaissance” captures that perfectly.
You can stream “Renaissance” at the link below, out everywhere via Monstercat. Enjoy!
