Ossian’s​ ​debut​ ​solo​ ​EP​ ​comes​ ​out​ ​on​ ​South​ ​London​ ​Analogue​ ​Material​ ​(S.L.A.M),​ ​the​ ​label​ ​he created​ ​with​ ​Ansome​ ​3​ ​years​ ​ago.​ ​After​ ​a​ ​previous​ ​joint​ ​release​ ​on​ ​S.L.A.M​ ​and​ ​a​ ​remix​ ​on​ ​Perc Trax,​ ​we​ ​get​ ​to​ ​see​ ​original​ ​tracks​ ​from​ ​Ossian​ ​for​ ​the​ ​first​ ​time.​

'​Shock​ ​&​ ​Awe'​ ​is​ ​a​ ​hard,​ ​noisy, dancefloor​ ​ripper​ ​with​ ​mesmeric​ ​synth​ ​stabs​ ​that​ ​sets​ ​the​ ​tone​ ​of​ ​the​ ​release​ ​in​ ​no​ ​uncertain terms.​ ​Next​ ​is​ ​'Sickly​ ​Inhibitions',​ ​a​ ​dark​ ​broken​ ​beat​ ​track​ ​full​ ​of​ ​screams,​ ​choral​ ​samples​ ​and breaks​ ​with​ ​vocals​ ​reminiscent​ ​of​ ​the​ ​silver​ ​screen​ ​and​ ​the​ ​early​ ​days​ ​of​ ​motion​ ​picture.​

​The​ ​last of​ ​the​ ​original​ ​tracks​ ​is​ ​'Necessary​ ​Illusions',​ ​another​ ​powerful​ ​dancefloor​ ​track,​ ​the​ ​distorted drums​ ​are​ ​accompanied​ ​by​ ​screeching​ ​synths,​ ​twisted​ ​noise​ ​and​ ​battle​ ​horns.​ ​To​ ​finish​ ​the​ ​EP S.L.A.M​ ​welcomes​ ​UVB​ ​to​ ​the​ ​label​ ​for​ ​the​ ​first​ ​time​ ​with​ ​his​ ​remix​ ​of​ ​'Necessary​ ​Illusions' showcasing​ ​his​ ​robust​ ​sound​ ​taking​ ​elements​ ​of​ ​the​ ​original​ ​and​ ​subtly​ ​reworking​ ​them.
