Late last year, London artist Oceaán (pictured above) dropped Grip, a four-track EP that melded together the worlds of futuristic soul music with detailed electronic production. Here, we have NYC producer Photay‘s take on EP cut “Candour.” A shape-shifting, soul-strewn pop affair in its original form, Photay (who dropped a record of his own last year via Astro Nautico) imbues the track with a new glow, lacing the rework’s steady pulse with a series of bright, swelling chords while repurposing the original’s many melodic flares and harmonizing vocal layers. Photay’s warm and inviting take on “Candour” can be downloaded below, while Oceaán’s Grip is out now via B3SCI/Chess Club.
