oyaarss in session tonight, for Mantis Radio.
MANTIS 094 + oyaarss
BROADCASTING FROM 20:00 GMT ON FUTURE MUSIC
So we keep it on the Eastern side of Europe this week, following on from the Dutch techno mastery that was Bas Mooy to present a Baltic producer constantly pushing his sonic palette to its limit – oyaarss.
Latvian born and bred oyaarss describes his own music as “lullabies for decadent people“, mainly due to the subtle aftertaste of uneasiness it leaves.
Being a staunch admirer of dystopian novels, post/math-metal, contemporary minimalist music and obscene distortion, has all left a massive footprint in his music, and the only thing you will fail to find in his icy landscapes is a gentle summer breeze. In a very weird way, indeed, it works as a soothing lullaby praising all that is cold, uneasy and eerie, and the heavy industrial harshness is merely a side-effect.
