Foreign Family Collective signee obli celebrates the delivery of his latest release on ODESZA’s famed electronic imprint. Out now, “Deeper” is a fine exemplification of obli’s flourishing sonic profile that exudes an air of simplicity and contains many dynamics.
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 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 Foreign Family Collective EP that’s centered 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 guitar for GRAMMY® Award-nominated superstar Julia Michaels.
His origins in 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, he obli accesses a cinematic level of emotion as he layers vocal samples above the living and breathing soundscapes he handcrafted.
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.
