Who: Oscar Scheller
Why We Care: Tripping into life in a soft shuffle of Slick Rick channeling breaks, Oscar Schelling’s first track, Never Told You, doesn’t impose itself with a head rush of cheap tricks. Its spine is a sprawl of piano riffs and warm, 90’s beats which never break from their shuffling earnestness. His vocals are dry-mouthed and dead pan, relying on repetition and gently undulating melodies to make an impact. James over at Three Beams, who sent it our way this afternoon, pretty much nailed it. Oscar’s impact lies in the ‘strength of simplicity,’ something his contemporaries would do well to consider.
