Foreign Family Collective signee obli celebrates the delivery of his latest release on ODESZA’s famed electronic imprint. Slated for release on 27th October, ‘Deeper’ is a fine exemplification of obli’s flourishing sonic profile that exudes an air of simplicity and dynamism.
Opening with soft-synth piano chords and breakbeat percussion, obli starts his latest track “Deeper” off with a warm and inviting atmosphere. Blending arpeggiating melodies across the lead-in, a soulful vocal sample draws listeners in ahead of a deep percussive, yet the ambient display of obli’s production proficiencies in contemporary electronic music.
Produced with intention surrounding the spontaneity of music creation, “Deeper” is the first track off of a forthcoming project on Foreign Family Collective that’s centred around initial inspiration. Where musicians can often mold an initial feeling that inspires a track, obli has set forth to preserve that emotion in hopes that listeners will share the same feeling.
A true multi-instrumentalist with a tenure working with top names in the business, Chris Null has spent years of his career touring with the likes of Sonny Moore a.k.a Skrillex, and playing the guitar for GRAMMY® Award-nominated superstar Julia Michaels.
His origins in the alternative, indie, electronic, rock and pop music have set the foundation for him to build his current solo-project obli. Inspired by the likes of Four Tet, Bonobo, and Joy Orbison, obli accesses a cinematic level of emotion as he layers vocal samples above handcrafted living and breathing soundscapes.
With more new music on the horizon, obli’s latest release “Deeper” foreshadows a new era of music soon to come on ODESZA’s Foreign Family Collective imprint.
