Where: Manchester

What: House

More: Soundcloud / Facebook

Floating along on a wave of breezy Balearic instrumentals ‘Need U’, the second of Manchester producer Oceaán’s two tracks, is the jaded antithesis to 2013’s buoyant house revival.

There’s talk of 2014 being the year Jungle (the genre as opposed to the band) comes back into general circulation but Oliver Cean, the face -and voice- behind Oceaán, is happy to drift along in his own honeyed melodies.

He’s the soundtrack to drizzly summers and plastic sun loungers rather than Costa Del Sol face-melters, but, despite his love for languorous melodies and drooling apathy, it’s not hard to imagine Oceaán slipping into a warm pool of public adoration in the new year.
