For the A Side he opens with “Deltic” which sets the mood with tough yet soulful chicago vibes. OCH’s second contribution is “Freeze-Thaw” showcasing a deep, hypnotic groove alongside powerful sub-bass, lush female vox with dreamy analogue pads that bridge the gap between artistic creativity and memorable club versatility.
On the flip side its Romanian all-rounder, The Model, who has previously graced premium labels such as Traum Schallplatten, Crosstown Rebels and International DJ Gigolo. Here he delivers two ultra-phat workouts in the form of “Dungeon Man”, an infectious chord driven floor-burner and “Stancuto” a stripped back, percussive take on the same theme demonstrating his emerging new warehouse sound with just the slightest salute to Echocord or Denhert.

A2. Tool 1
B1. Fever Dub
B2. Fever Dub 2
Credits: After Whalesong’s huge run on Trelik, OCH represents his new four tracker: “Roadmaster” on All Inn. Aside comes with “Roadmaster”, an almost nine minutes long flash on the time-travelling train, and before the road ends a voice tells us gently that we are close to the borders. On flipside the brotherhood of spacey tribalism and twisiting house-rollers is visualized by the parts of “Fever Dub’s”. Stunning package by the hands of the english wizard, OCH.
