Funk fans rejoice – LA-based duo Oliver’s groovy new album, Full Circle, is officially here! With a disco/indie dance/funk-infused 80s style of production that will never go out of style, these two have been on the scene for quite some time now. We first featured their Mechanical EP back in early 2013, and they’ve gone strong ever since with lively originals and remixes for Madeon, Jack Ü and more. Now Full Circle is here, and it’s safe to say we’re digging it.
This extensive 15-track project draws from influences all across the board and features guest appearances by artists like Chromeo, De La Soul and more. While many of the funk-fueled tracks exude an old school 80s vibe that we’ve come to love from these two, like “Chemicals” feat. MNDR, “Love Like This” feat. Leon Else and “Heart Attack” feat. De La Soul, many of the others take risks far beyond what we’d expect. There are pieces that take a more ambient approach, like the dreamy, delicate title track “Full Circle,” and others that take things harder and heavier, like the electro-style “Ottomatic.” And if the project wasn’t impressive enough already, Oliver played each and every instrument heard throughout as opposed to rely on samples from others. This thoughtful touch creates a crisp, clean sound that resonates through any speaker.
From its pulsing basslines to the groovy, dance floor-ready synth melodies, Full Circle is a stellar blend of nostalgic and refreshing works. Check out the project in its entirety below – enjoy!
